LH to increase FRA from 4 to 5 daily starting in October which will take total daily departures up to x10 between LH/EI/FR. MUC also gets extra capacity carried over from the summer to x13 weekly..

In 1 year LH have increased from 3 to 5 daily.

Ryanair has issued letters of protective notice to more than 300 staff as it announced plans to cut its Dublin- based fleet by 20% for the winter months.

The airline said it plans to cut its Dublin-based fleet of aircraft from 30 to around 24.

It said it has issued letters of protective notice to over 100 pilots and over 200 cabin crew employees, whose services may not be required from 28 October onwards.

The airline said the moves come on the back of the rapid growth of its Polish charter airline, Ryanair Sun, along with a downturn in bookings and airfares in Ireland.

It said this was "partly as a result of recent rolling strikes by Irish pilots, which has had a negative effect on high fare bookings and forward air fares as consumer confidence in the reliability of our Irish flight schedules has been disturbed".

Ryanair said it will be offering transfers to Poland and possibly some other bases to the Dublin-based pilots and cabin crew employees for Winter 2018 in order to minimise any redundancies.

Ryanair's COO Peter Bellew said the airline regretted the base aircraft reductions at Dublin for winter 2018.

The Kremlin’s aviation regulator, Rosaviatsia, has issued a decree granting permission for Aeroflot’s low-cost subsidiary to start flying a new direct service from Moscow to Dublin.

Pobeda, Aeroflot’s budget airline, will initially fly four times a week from the Russian capital to Dublin, according to filings published yesterday on the regulator’s website.

Won't be too far off the reduction announced by Ryanair today minus 6 based planes, they can just operate the flights from the other bases and not drop too many flights at the end of the day. Ryanair don't drop too many routes unless they are not making money on them.

I think you'll find its opportunistic given FR's announcement, they are recruiting for crew and pilots and it includes LON and MAN positions as well as European bases. They are holding 3 days of recruitment roadshows.

Hainan is apparently reducing Dublin/Edinburgh/Beijing from 4 per week to 3 per week for the winter (the Thursday flight goes away).

German aviation forum "airliners.de" reports that Norwegian might step in and intents to become the largest low cost operator out of DUB
Norwegian möchte in Ryanair-Lücke springen - airliners.de

Looks like they prefer to be bought by FR rather than IAG...

Flew with Pobeda a number of times during the world cup and found them to offer a good service.................... though VKO airport in Moscow is a nightmare waiting to happen with what looks like poor separation of aircraft and transit buses.

Luxair have announced LUX will be upgraded from a Dash to B737 in October, just as FR start the route.

They never planned to operate 30 aircraft over winter. They will be busy now that German and Dutch has backed action and apparently most German (80%) are directly employed by them making it the situation far worse than here.

On another note, CX A350 scheduled last Saturday has yet to fly back, 5 days an counting most be costing them.

They had a 359 stranded in MAN for about 5 days last week due a hydraulic issue, hardly the same frame?

As regards FR, reap what you sow.

Norwegian smells blood in the air and looks like they are attempting to eat into Ryanairs dominant position across Europe. Interesting development.

Is it not simply an extension of the policy that if you make a menace of yourself to enough people, one of them eventually will buy you out? They seem to be doing quite well on that front with both IAG and now Ryanair.

If Ryanair hold true to their word and scale back in markets where strikes take hold, then yes there could be an opportunity for another player. If that's Norwegian - good luck to them, easyJet tried (albeit small) in Ireland and failed.
