The airport said they was in talks over a new contract and was positive a new deal will be reached and had already overcome some issues so you’d like to think a announcement will be made soon

My guess is in relation to EMA there is a wider piece to this in terms of MAG. Give us the deal we want and we'll continue EMA, or don't and we'll do a huge deal with BHX for the EMA aircraft etc etc. Given that STN is in the mix, there likely is a wider dimension.

Ryanair have never been in a stronger negotiating position than they are now.

Well in the world of media spin you would hardly expect the airport to come out with something along the lines of "we are in tough negotiations with the airline, and be sure that we're more than willing to walk away if they are not prepared to pay a reasonable price to operate from here". To do so would ensure prospective passengers would give up waiting and book via another carrier, or from another airport.

On the other hand MAG may have decided that the airport is nicely viable with AYR cargo services and seasonal passenger flights are not worth the hassle. If airlines want to pay realistic fees, then they're welcome. Remember that there will only be modest income from catering and other franchises.

I am in no way party to the P+L accounts of EMA as part of MAG, but I reckon your analysis is spot on. It's not to say EMA doesn't want to keep Ryanair, but given the diverse nature of the airport's business model, which is almost unique in UK, they probably fell they are in a much stronger position than almost all other regional airports as the UK exists the Covid driven retrenchment of the last 18 months / 2 years. Ryanair probably aren't familiar with a situation where they are negotiating with equals, and probably don't like it.

Don’t forget MAG went through a similar loop with Ryanair at Manchester a few years ago. O’Leary took his toys away for a while, but have come back and then some.

It should be remembered that Manchester is the dominant city in north west England. I don't believe EMA is the main airport for the dominant city in the midlands

If BHX can do a good-enough deal with FR, it may well be in Ryanair's long term interest to shift their flying slightly more in Birmingham's favour

Whether it would be in the best interests of BHX may be altogether another question!

I would imagine Ryanair may be welcomed by BHX because of the loss of Flybe, Monarch and TCX.

Not sure Jet2, Easyjet or TUI would agree!

Does Ryanair still adhere (largely) to a no-overbooking rule, or has thought been given to maybe doing it to a modest and non-trivial degree ? The only case I know of was max 6 pax in the morning on STN-DUB pre Covid when there were maybe 9 flights per day

I'm aware Easyjet has definitely and deliberately overbooked in the past and I got on a flight on more than 1 occasion only because of checked in pax not showing up at the gate. I've been on an overbooked Wizz flight once, but not sure if that was deliberate or just accident

I ask particularly because Covid has presumably led to a higher level of noshows because of pax getting last minute nerves about high levels of cases when travelling away from home

Note - I'm not looking for a discussion about whether overbooking should be legal or not - that topic has been discussed endlessly on the web already

Ryanair make more threats than the French and like the French it is always someone else’s fault.

A majority of winter ops for Ryanair out of East Midlands mid week are operated by non based A/C.
All S22 flights out of East Midlands are now available up until end of October 22.
