If that is the case, then each new UK frame will be a Blue Max.
Now it all makes sense!
Ok, Blue & White...

DUB all airlines only 384 departures in the next 7 days! Anyone flying into DUB from UK or SA needs a negative Covid test taken within 72 hours of arrival. Arrive without a test and you can get a 2,500 fine or 6 months in prison. Soon other countries. Who is going to book? I've had 12 recent cancellations and await refunds / vouchers. Will I book for Spring / Summer? No way and perhaps others think that way.
Look at UK airports MAN next 7 days only 320 departures, STN 303 departures, GLA 119 deps, EDI 156 and of all those flights how many pax?
I don't think you'll see any FR flights from UK soon. Its how they will weather the storm.

Even if they are based in the UK, it doesn’t mean they are going to be added to the RUK AOC.

8200 If the price is right, folk will fly on it and within 12 months, assuming no accidents or major incidents, the public will have lost the connection with the MAX.

I look forward to flying on the -8200. But I need to be allowed to fly somewhere first! :-)

MoL on R4 this morning saying mass cancellations of flights to/from the UK wef 21.1.21 underway resulting in probably just "10-20" flights per day operated in total from that date.

Blames Governmental Pandemic policy or the lack of it for the temporary measures...

Ryanair has cut a large number of routes across its network - down maybe 20% (or more) compared to 2019, and the remaining routes generally will see a much lower frequency in S21
This of course means the number of aircraft in use will be down significantly

Is Ryanair planning on a sizeable reduction in fleet size over the next 2 years, or are they just grounding aircraft in the expectation of a return to service in 2022 or 2023 ?

Or maybe the summer schedule isn't fianlised yet, and they are keeping some flexibility so they can respond quickly to changing circumstances?

The schedule isn't finalised yet so speculating on route closures/frequency cuts at this stage is near pointless. Not sure when it will be but I would imagine fairly soon.

Ryanair is expecting others to fail or certain ones so it can react and move aircraft etc

Article yesterday on about Ryanair. The tone of the article is rather upbeat, indicating flying at something close to S19 levels across Europe. When I look at the FR website, and see all the routes that are no longer offered, and the frequency reductions, I see a very different story

Anyone else have an opinion on the article ?

Posts: 1,321 get their info from OAG schedule data, which by no means is a perfect source at the best of times. What Ryanair is currently selling tickets for is an even less accurate reflection of what they'll actually operate. As has been said previously, the schedules are not yet finalised. It's arguably later than usual, but these of course are not usual times.

Mass schedule releases - trying to generate cash

All airlines are releasing schedules very early, some already for summer 2022, they all want to get as much cash in the bank to ride this storm.

Off course they will not fly all, as much is tentative for now... but I would trust a RYR schedule more as for example Logan who are opening routes like mad man.

But all airlines are now just publishing to generate cash in banks and later on they will cancel and refund... if they still have cash

Ryanair will lead the aviation recovery in Europe. Their flexibility, innovation and drive are unmatched. Their view is that in adversity there is opportunity....

A Malta Air `8200 currently in assembly at Renton will be sporting the new Malta Air livery.

Three Buzz liveried `8200`s currently await certification/delivery.
