Noone is talking about the future, read the posts properly before putting finger to keyboard. The facts as stated are a snapshot of the companies position at at a given point of time. I can' t tell the future, do you have a crystal ball?

Their goal is to maximise profits, they've done that. All I've done is state facts, the rest of you have given subjective opinions, as if we all should be so grateful to hear your advice on how to run an airline. Easy to do when you spend all day in an internet chatroom! Not so easy when you're actually out there doing it, putting your balls on the line for all to see and having people like Hugmonster praying for your demise.

PPRuNe really is full of Guvnor's

OK, so MOL gets up peoples' noses on a fairly regular basis.
However, as a CEO , he's doing an awful lot right for his shareholders - getting free publicity, growing the market AND his market share, keeping costs trimmed.

Whether you like his management/PR style is another matter. As is the question as to whether his business model is sustainable in the longterm.

What I do like is that you know what you're getting (basic transportation and not a lot else). More than I can say for my last Y flight FRA-LHR on a scheduled major at breakfast time - cup of tea and a forced smile.
Culdn't even buy food. I know because I asked....

It seems to me as a pax that mol is always wanting to cut costs. that sounds unsafe. I also object to paying to transport the clothes i need to wear during the trip.

I will keep flying with BD/LH/SAS thanks mol - they treat you like a customer not an inconvienience

Adapt or die has has been the way of things since time began, which is why the birds are with us and the dinosaurs are not. Air transport is evolving and no frills is the way short-haul is going, however galling that is for pilots used to the gentler ways of "traditional" carriers. In the end, the customer is always right and a glance at the passenger figures shows pretty clearly what the customer wants.

Good luck to South-West, Ryanair, easyJet and all the others. The trouble with nostalgia is that there's no future in it.
