The next chapter of Ryanair Vs Polish State Airports and LOT is now playing out and it's happening pretty much as I predicted earlier in the year.

For previous chapters in this particular story check
http://www.pprune.org/9358330-post5154.html (April)
http://www.pprune.org/airlines-airpo...ml#post9426206 (June)

There is still continued talk about Polish State airports buying a majority stake in Modlin Airport, and recently the Chairman of Modlin Airport has resigned, over what is said to be plans to allow this to happen, to be replaced by an Ex LOT official who is said to be very much pro these plans and dragging his heels over any expansion plans.

In response Ryanair is now going to up domestic routes at Chopin Airport to try and hit LOT where it hurts and Michael O'Leary is now promising to fund the expansion of Modlin Airport itself, because they are (rightly) worried that the whole new chairman and ownership approach is an attempt to stifle growth at Modlin to protect LOT at Chopin Airport.

O'Leary's idea of funding the airport probably has no real prospect of happening, however it is most likely a deliberate publicity stunt to try and call out the excuse that the funding isn't available to expand Modlin which is currently being portrayed as the case.

Ryanair chce finansowa? rozbudow? Modlina - Pasazer.com
Next chapter of this supposed to be imminent either this week or next to escalate this particular war, no report on how this will be yet but speculation that services will be effected.
Next chapter of this long running story has started, Ryanair will withdraw from Chopin Airport domestic flights from Warsaw to Gdansk and Wroclaw.

PPL has been allocating Ryanair the furthest posswible aircraft parking spaces from the airport building in order to make the services less competitive and there has also been long delays in ground transport to these planes that is often late and involves a 15-20 minute bus ride to the terminal via a very indirect route.

A complaint to the EU has been made.

Why on earth has the IAA demanded a Jan-Dec leave year? Is it up to them to decide operational matters such as this?

Cancelled flights do not depart on time. So if punctuality is a measure of flights that do depart on time, how does cancelling flights improve punctuality?

It will free up crew and aircraft to cover slack and increase standby's to the operating schedule, according to the article. With many short legs will a morning delay also delay the following pair of flights until it can catch up in the midday break. Since most airframes return to the same base after each flight pair, and all the planes are the same, with an extra crewed aircraft they can switch that in to operate the rest of the day's schedule on time for that line.
It's the usual; not enough pilots and planes to operate an ambitious schedule, combined with all the extra cabin bag delays and musical chairs before takeoff, to be on top of the for Ryanair marketing all important on-time statistics.

Perversely, cancelled flights don't count against punctuality. Hence why airlines will cancel them rather than delay them.

Seems it has already started Ryanair's Facebook page has gone mad people saying they have had less than a days notice and even some saying 4 hrs notice of delayed flights
Some people saying they have been flown out to Greece on holiday and there flight home on Monday has been cancelled and they have been offered Friday as an alternative people are asking what flights are affected so they know if they are flying or not but Ryanair are saying wait for an email if you don't get one your flight will be going ahead as normal that's a lot of stress and worry if your waiting to fly
Surly this is going to cause more problems long term for Ryanair I would rather have a 2 hour delay than not fly at all or be stranded abroad
So Ryanair is saying it's on time record is more important than fly its customers
This don't make sense to me something is going on behind closed doors that they don't want anyone to know about all I do know is there are a lot of un happy passengers already

Which airports are these cancellations for? I have just booked 5 return flights from Gatwick, it is a heck of journey to Gatwick so I wouldn't want to turn up for a 10pm flight and find myself cancelled.

How can you be so wrong?

Cancelled flight show ZERO delays and as such help (greatly or not I leave others to say) with Ryanair's already supremely good[*] statistics in this area.
[*] Or so the company press releases all trumpet (sic).

Has there been a change of personnel at Ryanair? They seem to have gone back to the bad old Ryanair lock stock and barrell!

Whatever is their regulator doing about this ? The Irish Aviation Authority should surely be up at them for not having sufficient resources to conduct their advertised operation.

The whole EU261 regulation thing was kicked off by Ryanair doing exactly the same thing, telling people on holiday on Mediterranean islands that their flight was cancelled and their options were to rebook on the next available flight a week later, look after yourself in the meantime, or get half of their return fare refunded and then be on their own.

IAA job is to ensure they comply with x, y and z not ability to provide a service.

And that therefore includes enforcing, along with x, y and z, EU261. Which is clearly not happening.

Story now starting to hit the BBC

Ryanair to cancel 40-50 flights per day for six weeks - BBC News




Quote:
... due to fly from Leeds to Bratislava on Friday morning.


On Thursday night he received a text message from Ryanair, saying his flight had been cancelled.


The only alternative flight he was offered was on Monday - when he was originally due to be returning to Leeds.

So we are in Kraków & Ryanair cancel our flight home on Monday - what??? How are we supposed to get home?
And still their AOC regulator in Dublin looks the other way ?

That will be news to the IAA.

"The Irish Aviation Authority is responsible for the management of Irish controlled airspace, the safety regulation of Irish civil aviation and the oversight of civil aviation security in Ireland."
