Yes buster, but they are not stupid enough to sign up to Boeing GoldCare for their maintenance requirements.

Where would FR get the slots from? VS's withdrawal alone won't be enough to cover a base that size, and BA/IAG seem intent on holding onto their slot portfolio at LGW.

Ryanair will often talk airframes in terms of capacity. It wouldn't neccessarily mean 15 aircraft based, though that may become possible depending on the extent of cuts by other operators. They could make quite a big operation viable with a fairly small number of based aircraft and utilise a significant volume of non-based aircraft, if the appetite was there.
