We haven't heard much new from MOL in the press recently apart from the usual talk that he generates every year. The only real snippet is that he wants to stay in the job until 2032 - I expect shareholders will happily agree to this at an AGM

It's always good for a CEO to know what's happening on the shop floor instead of just the executive suite, but the FR machine should be capable of running day-to-day operations without his being heavily involved, which makes me wonder what he's up to, and what plans he has for FR long term. MOL will be very much aware of the consolidation happening in European airlines for example...

This probably means he's busy looking at airlines to buy.....

Ryanair is likely to focus on organic growth in the coming years, having found its acquisitions to be “a pain in the arse”, according to group chief executive Michael O’Leary.

Well, he wants to join the growing ranks of European long-term leaders, apparently. Fortunately he has already proven himself to be much more successful than people like putin or any present-day tough-guy politicians...

Checked the FR news release for each country and in recent days they announced the summer schedule for such bases/locations:
https://corporate.ryanair.com/media-...s/de/?tag=News

In addition websites/press releases of airports and (reliable) social media like LinkedIn.

ALC and AGP will be each increased by 2 to 13 based a/c this summer, FAO up to 10 from June.

No changes for MAD (13), BLQ (11), POZ (4), VCE (4), TSF (2), TRN (2) and PIK (2). No further expansion at LIS (4), FNC (2), and PDL (1) "due to increased charges".

I note that there are only 8 Buzz-liveried and 6 Malta Air liveried Maxs, all delivered in 2021. Subsequent deliveries have been in 'old' Ryanair livery. Is this a change in strategy, a cost-saving device, or to improve fleet flexibility?

That was always the plan. Buzz and MaltaAir are just Ryanair AOCs to make sure the pilot group doesn't get too big and union minded. They were always going to be Ryanair by-any-other-name, just like Ryanair UK.
All about keeping costs down.

Donít know about Buzz, but I seem to recall that part of the deal with the Maltese government was that a certain number of aircraft (presumably 6) would be painted in Malta Air livery.

Ryanair

I am due to fly from Carcassonne to Manchester on Friday and have read the notice on their app ref the possible flight disruption this week due to the French ATC strikes.
If my flight is cancelled I will opt for the refund into the Wallet of the Ryanair app so I can use on a future flight(s).

I have also separately booked Ryanair flights on Monday from Manchester>Dublin and then Dublin>Toulouse, but I have no intention of travelling if the flight on Friday to Manchester is cancelled. If this happens, I won't be able to take the flights on Monday, therefore what are the chances of requesting a successful refund into the Wallet of my Ryanair account for these two flights on Monday?
I don't hold out too much hope, but I made these bookings back in January when it wasn't well known exactly when the strikes would take place.
Does anyone have any recent experience for this type of situation with Ryanair?

You would probably be told to make a claim on your travel insurance in this eventuality. There is also the possibility that you could qualify for compensation for the short-notice cancellation (EU261 etc.), but only if this is deemed to be the fault of the airline. If it is outside the control of the operator, then a travel insurance claim for incidental costs / consequential losses is probably your best recourse again.

Ryanair says price still key to new Boeing jet deal | Reuters

Seems Ryanair are slowly gaining pace again on talks of a new Boeing order, potentially also for the MAX 10 for up to 230 passengers.

I wonder if similarly to the MAX 200 (or 737-8200 as they prefer to call it) they'd consider a higher density variant of the MAX 10, capable of up to say 240 passengers. Wizz for instance have 239 seats on their A321neos. Can't imagine what they'd call such a thing, the 737-X240 most probably!

Thanks for the info and advice. Will try that.

Maybe it's just my impatience, but I can't find how to change the currency preference in the app?
I am changing a flight and the standard fee is meant to be £45 or 45 euro's...but I am paying with a French card, so will I be charged more than 45 euro's because the value of £45 is more in euro's?

As far as i am aware, you can not do this on Ryanair Its been a long standing thing and i don't believe its changed. So you pay the currency of the country the booked flight is departing from (if one way fare).

E.g;
One way STN-DUB will be £ Sterling.
One way DUB-STN will be Ä Euro.
Return booking STN-DUB-STN will be £ Sterling.

I believe any change fees are usually the same, e.g the original currency for the flight booking too. I dont believe you'll be charged extra however for using a French card though. Their fees will be as stated. It will then just depend on your card for any transaction fees for paying in Sterling.
