Ryanair are abandoning all domestic routes within Sweden, blaming taxes, fees blah blah blah. Affects ARN - LLA/SKF/GOT/MMX/VBY; all trunk routes for SK, TF and DY.

(Meanwhile, for context, Norwegian reported 2023 results this week: EBIT 2.23 billion NOK (212 million USD) margin of 9%; about to pay out dividend of 50 million USD its shareholders. I don’t believe FR moaning about taxes and fees when other airlines are doing just fine.)

FR were welcomed in Sweden, but without guaranteed connections in ARN they would have struggled to survive on just P2P.

Report (in Swedish) about the cancellations:

It was a very thin operation. I don’t think any of the routes were even daily.

The truth is Ryanair struggles massively on domestic services. I think the only real exception is Italy, and also Spain (which are both very different types of market compared to Northern European domestic). Same for Wizz Air actually.

Lovely to see Norwegian back on track. Ryanair always have an excuse if something doesnt work. Would be great if they actually said for once "well we didn't get the passengers numbers we expected, so had to leave the market" however I think hell would of frozen over if that happened

Going up against SAS with its multi frequencies was always going to be a challenge. Take Skelleftea as an example. Nearly 5 flights a day to Arlanda so perfect for onward flights or work trips. Ryanair was 3 times a week, at odd times as well so only really benefitted the few. Of course they'll blame taxes, airport operators etc

It seems to me that Ryanair is trying to regularise its relationships with OTAs to increase business, and minimise the inconvenience/cost of unregulated access to bookings. Sounds like a good strategy.

They totally underestimated the role of OTA's on their business and this is a back tracking exercise after all their raging about how bad OTAs are

Fortune magazine:

Ryanair CEO wants Boeing to pay his budget airline compensation after Alaska Airlines incident puts summer travel season under threat

Ryanair CEO Michael O’Leary slammed Boeing for being a manufacturing “s--t show” as potential delays in aircraft deliveries for the summer could mean bad news.

As much as I do not like, nor do I choose to fly on Ryanair, I do think the CEO MoL has every right to slam Boeing.
He is one is their biggest customers (although at the end of the day he maybe not completely loyal) and his airline has been seriously affected, first by the 2019 737 MAX Groundings and then huge delays in new aircraft, orders not delivered on time (or at all) over the past few years, and now with more delays yet to come.

That in itself could cripple many companies, but MoL is a very clever man and will use this in his favour of course.

Ryanair ordered (on 9 May 2023) 300 new Boeing 737-MAX-10 aircraft (150 firm with 150 options) for delivery between 2027 to 2033.
That type has not even yet been certificated, nor any production models built.
If the M-10 does not get delivered on time, or get the same 737 Pilot type rating, and/or does not even come to fruition (worst case) then again MoL's Contract no doubt gives him exclusive clauses for compensation.
He (MoL) also just announced to the Travel Industry that if any U.S. airline customers refuse to take delivery of 737 MAX 10 aircraft, then Ryanair would take them.
United Airlines has ordered 277 MAX 10 jets with options for another 200, and said last week the airline's new fleet plan does not include the model, which had already been mired in regulatory and delivery delays before the Alaska Airlines incident.

"We (MoL CEO Ryanair) have told Boeing that if some of these American airlines don't want to take the MAX 10 aircraft, Ryanair will take those aircraft,"
He described the MAX 10 as "transformational" and said Boeing would always make great aircraft "but quality does need to be improved."
"If Scott Kirby (CEO United Airlines) doesn't want to take his MAX 10s, then we'll very happily take them at the right price" .
Asked if Ryanair was nervous about its huge reliance on the Boeing MAX or was looking at ways to diversify, they said: "No, the MAX is a great aircraft."
But said "if something were to happen", Ryanair would have the option of not selling its older 737s.


TUI Airways UK also have a dilemma over its large 737M-10 order that was supposed to have been in service from 2021 to replace the 757's, and they (TUI) seemingly have no game plan should the -10 faces further delays, or does not come to fruition at all.
For this summer TUI are again relying on a huge and increasing amount of ACMI/3rd Party aircraft leases at many of it's UK and Eire bases.

I think United said they are looking at contingency plans for in case the MAX-10 doesn't turn up, rather than they are out of their plans completely.

What's the current position on the MAX-10 certification?

It’s only a matter of time before OLeary tests the water with Airbus. He is spot on, Boeing are a complete sh1t show and there is only so long that airlines can continue to be let down on future order books whilst also putting their staff at risk and the balance sheet struggling.

And how does Airbus produce the number of aircraft that Ryanair would need?

Good question for which I don’t have an answer, just my personal opinion that I think RYR at some point soon will try out the NEO

United have stated they have removed the Type from their future fleet plans.

The Certification for the Type is still mired with Boeing seeking (pleading) in yet again asking for extending exemptions, and submitting further cockpit redesigns, confirming aircraft stability, and of course for the coveted 737 Cockpit Pilot type rating commonality. There seems no end date.
(That expired at the end of last year).

As for Ryanair changing tack in supplier --- They are extremely (as we all know) influential.
I'll leave it there.

As for the other latest news that Ryanair fares will rise by up to 10% this summer as MoL blames the Boeing delivery delays, I feel that will not impact their Sales too much.

Indeed, and maybe...
Or, if the 737M-10 fails, MoL will just fall back on the existing 737M8-200 type of which he still has a huge back order book.

He would be placed for Ryanair's M-10 orders to be changed to the M8-200,
and with that he would receive huge contractual compensation and the new airfarmes at bargain/reduced prices.
We've been there before.
The only caveat and dilemma he is then faced with would see a negative on Ryanair's growth and expansion with reduced seat costs if flying with the M-10.
The smaller 8-200 seats 197 pax, whereas the M-10 will seat 228.

Of course Ryanair are gathering info on operating the A320 through their subsidiary Lauda Air.
If Ryanair wanted to add A320s, Airbus would ramp up production, something currently closed to Boeing due to FAA restrictions.

The next 3 months could break Boeing
https://www.nytimes.com/2024/02/28/u...g-737-max.html
If they don't fix things quick the M-10 could be on serious hold for quite a while.
If Airbus could get supply chains to upscale again then could additional production lines be added in US to accommodate United and others to free up Hamburg & Toulouse for a sizable Ryanair order and what sort of lead times would this involve? The M-8200 is just a stepping stone, Ok big one, to the M-10.
As slots become more scarce in Europe, the 321 will be king with the best cost/pax, those extra 30 seats will sell at the highest price.
