Master plan involves calling the aircraft something else to hide the fact from its panicking boarding passengers.

Sure Boeing would rather get people to take the cancelled frames from other airlines/leasors. With RYR having a bespoke model that is not going to happen. More of a flag waving exercise I think unless Boeing give them away in leau of compensation.

Possible order valued at more than Fifteen Billion Euro so quite a large flag one might think then.

The B737-800s were bought at a steal post 9-11 as Ryanair were in a good place to take advantage of them. If the MAX is a game changer for the group, Boeing will likely give them an amazing deal. History can repeat itself.

Just the latest example of Ryanair putting its own interests ahead of the health of the public as it loses an Irish court case to get restrictions lifted.

Ryanair maintained that what had been published by the Government went 'well beyond mere travel advice' and represented the 'imposition of restrictions on international travel.'

Ryanair management 1st duty is to the owners of the airline. All the Govt controls have not stopped the virus from spreading so questioning if they are any use at all. They would be failing to do their job is they did not question the restrictions.

Willie Walsh did the same in 2010 when he had BA fly jets transatlantic when UK Giovt was claiming ash from Icelandic volcano would force all aircraft engines to fail and aircraft fall out of the sky. BA had jets in the air that was made clear they would not be returning to the US. UK Govt threat was they would not be allowed to land, Govt minister folded on it when asked does a number of BA aircraft with passengers on board refused persmission to land and crashing look good on TV.

In Ireland we never invested in our health system and that's why we were not prepared and as a consequence we don't have any clear plan and we don't even have a transparent decision making process. Most of our Covid-19 deaths have been in nursing homes which is an absolute disgrace. Still more than six months later we have ineffective testing and very haphazard follow up. With the help of our Government our economy is in self destruct mode. but it will be someone else's mess to clean up. We are shut for business. Nothing wrong with someone like Ryanair questioning it. Its a free country and we need connectivity. Our border has been effectively shut for six months yet our incidence rate is three times higher than that of Germany.

I suppose there is a failure of logic with the borders. It is true to say that the virus was imported from abroad and that then spread like wildfire. It seems that the acts of travel, gathering and socialising that effects the incidence and prevalence. Essentially humans living a normal life, working, communicating and seeking social interaction with other humans is the vector for this virus to spread.

the time to close the borders was in March, once it was it it was too late. Now the Irish government seems to be trying to eradicate the virus, which isn't going so well either.

There are any indications yet from Ryanair on the number of based A/C and routes/frequencies from their MAN & LPL bases for the Winter?
I was particularly thinking of December/January...

Bearing in mind the potential for a winter lockdown, as unpalatable as that is, I think pretty much nobody has any idea. There are probably 3 scenario's normality / limited lockdown with green countrys allowed / full lockdown.

Hopefully it is somewhere between 1 and 2 but 3 is a 30% probability as well.

Any plans I am making are now relying on day or two before going booking.

Ryanair will get the Max at an absolute steal just like they did with the post 911 order.

He is a smart cookie.

Be assured that wherever competition or more specifically Aer Lingus operate, so too will Ryanair. The London route to Stansted will still operate I'd imagine...

Bases at Cork, Shannon and Toulouse will be closed for the winter period, while the number of aircraft based in Belgium, Germany, Spain, Portugal and Vienna will be cut.
Wonder why UK airports are not the above list?

On the other hand the UK is leaving the EU soon. Lots of threats from MOL in the past with no action taken despite the bluster or is he just waiting to make a point? I seem to remember him saying he would pull aircraft out of the UK and move them to Europe if we dared to vote to leave yet the fleet cuts have come from Europe.
