Meanwhile, the German press is phantasizing that it is all an elaborate plot by Ryanair's management to be able to massively dump capacity on the German market as soon as airberlin comes to a grinding halt and shuts down shop....

It makes me very happy to see MOL struggling to fill the aircrafts with pilots. I hope his arrogance will cost him dearly.

Train people well enough so they can leave, treat them well enough so they don’t want to.

With a comment like that, if you were twice as smart Arfur you'd be stupid.

as I already said, MOL should resign from his position. Really. That's the only right thing that he should do.

Yes, he is probably planning to bail soon, he knows he's been squeezing the lemon, and like any con man, he knows the time as come.

Does Ryanair have a pilot shortage? - BBC News

Interesting article on the BBC, nice to see a news outlet finally acknowledging that all might not be as it seems with Ryanair's excuses.

working for Ryanair is the easiest job ever. Anybody who thinks it's difficult clearly has never had a real job in the real world. Throw it away in haste repent at leisure

Indeed, about time that O Lairy and his management pulls out. Again, a pan European strike for one week or more would give him a signal, he went too far in his greedy effort to make more and more profit at the cost of his flying personnel.

Let,s learn him a lesson, stand up for your working conditions!

And O'Reilly can simply show Ryanair's safety record and shut down the debate.

Top shelf argument. Would 1500h rule prevent the Colgan crash?

Probably would not have prevented it but this 1500h rule does force the airlines to increase the terms and conditions. In return I hope the pilots will call in fatigue at earlier stages resulting in safer skies.

What gets on my nerves is when people start to argue that the problem with FR are the 200h cadets and thus indirectly implying 'safety argument', which can be refuted in an instant. 1500h rule was implemented to stop the devaluation of our profession and not due to safety.

I had thought of that as well... As long as you prove that you are an affected passenger, you get a nice discount and we'll show you what a good customer service is. So far nothing was done in that way in my company...

I'm sure the timing is just coincidence but this is how the issue is being spun in some local papers

If companies like Norwegian, easyJet and even Wizz play this game smart, they could put in the killer blow to Ryanair.

For many it might seem unlikely, but Ryanair are wobbling in the ring, a bit like Conor McGregor against Mayweather.

The more publicity around this, the more this is going to put a serious dent into customer confidence in the company.

Ryanair there now for the taking, and it's all their own making, it could not happen to a nicer company. :
Good riddance MOL and Ryanair
