Still think a graduated payreduction would be more pallatable. They on big salaries can stomach a larger percentage reduction than those on relatively little. But Ryanair is not run for the easy exchangable part of the workforce.
I would be curious to see the 737max - RYR contract. If Boeing would be able to deliver aircrafts lets say in 2021, would Ryanair be able to cancel the order? If yes, at what cost?
Because everyone now thinks in the short term...but they were planning a huge growth, now this huge growth will not come true.. So yes they have a huge pile of cash 3.5bn now.. Maybe they would erode only 0.5bn this year with this coronavirus, but what about next?

If anyone is interested they can find the 2019 RYR annual report here https://investor.ryanair.com/wp-cont...ual-Report.pdf

In any case there is no knowledge as to how long exposure protects you. It may be short term, it may be the virus mutates. The only protection is to develop one of the vaccines and to trial the drugs identified by AI. Both the other side of the potential second wave
Shutting borders is one of the silliest things to do and has probably caused thousands of extra infections already.
What is required is control at borders so that people only cross for good reason, wear face masks and, where appropriate, undergo quarantine.

Totally closing borders causes massive agglomerations of people in close contact as they all try to return home.

For the same reason Ryanair should be running down their schedule rather than terminating it.

According to a friend who works for them, its to keep the plane working and also keep the crew current. They are meant to be doing it every 4 days.

Isn't it like keeping a stationary car ticking over?

Sort of Alsacienne, Aircraft don't like to be parked up, by giving them a run it keeps them working and of course it allows the crew to spot any problems that the engineers can then fix.
