I seem to remember him saying he would pull aircraft out of the UK and move them to Europe if we voted to leave.
If you live in France / Benelux / Germany etc and fear risk of exposure to C-19 whilst flying aboard an airliner, you have an easy alternative. Drive to a Southern European resort in your own car maintaining your own family bubble and avoiding any possibility of ending up in a tiresome paperchase for future travel vouchers or refunds. But the UK market is a quite different proposition: this is an island nation. For most, you either fly to the Med resorts or don't bother travelling. Taking a car via Eurotunnel or a ferry is an option, but an expensive and physically demanding one. Simply put, the market for short-haul flying is much more resilient in the UK. MO'L is well aware of the allure of a captive market. Never underestimate the effect of a relatively expensive sea-crossing on alternative consumer choices.

Why have Ryanair stopped the option of requesting a voucher when a flight is cancelled?
I had 2 e mails off them this morning to confirm my flights from CCF>MAN have been cancelled on 02/11 & 15/01/21 but the options on the e mail were only a flight change (not a viable option as flights don't re-start again until April 2021) or a refund. So I opted for a refund but would happily take a flight voucher as I fly with Ryanair to France, Germany & Spain various times per year.

Why would anyone want a voucher when a refund gives people the option to still rebook or not.

Because I do not want to re-book on this particular route from April onwards. Flights to and from CCF to MAN are not operating now until April 2021.
The voucher gives me more flexibility to book up when I want, whilst also changing the origin and as in the past, I may even manage to get 2 return flights out of the total value of the voucher.

If you want a refund out of FR for a previously cancelled flight and an existing request has not been actioned, you should consider the chargeback route on your payment card. I have found that phoning FR and asking politely if you, the passenger, need to do a chargeback to secure the refund, somehow leads to the refund being actioned promptly

Yes, it does work, I can endorse that suggestion.

He is a smart cookie.

It is a gamble because if this lasts 5 years then few airlines will be in existence.

On the other hand Boeing will be quite happy as they will set off some of the $$$ they owe Ryanair against the purchase price and US Govt as always will be funding the export sale.

A 200 plane order is basically one of their plants just servicing that order for close to 2 years, it won't be like that in practice as over a longer term but Boeing happy to take that order to the bank.

Not only Armenia but also all flights to Georgia and Lebanon seem to be cancelled.

The very real risk of being shot down would do that.

Got my refund request confirmed and actioned within a week . Flight departure time changed by over 3 hours, but since my destination is a red zone now opted for the refund. Second time I cancelled the same trip now after March .

Possibly reported earlier, but this news is due to the Irish government's latest Covid crackdown:

Ryanair UK from 1st Jan 2021

Ryanair booking system is being updated with Ryanair UK flight numbers with effect from 1st Jan 2021.

This only applies to a fairly small number of routes from the UK that would otherwise be impacted by Brexit, including UK domestic, Montenegro, Morocco and Ukraine.

From 1st Jan, all flights from the UK to those destinations will operate with "RK" flight numbers and presumably therefore under the ATC callsign "Blue Max".
