We all know that Ryanairs 737-200 fleet is aging and they will have to replace them with annother type of Aircraft.

They are starting to replace some of them with the 737-800, but will they only buy 737-800s or will they buy annother other aircraft like the A319/A320?

I've heard they will only fly the 800 in the fleet. The scrapped 200 registrations are now starting to appear on the brand new 800's. Another thread in this forum will tell you wahat they are i think.

The -200's have been sold to a company that deals in parts.

I wonder what they will do with the 732 routes that would not be profitable with the 738. Seems to me they are missing out on a segment (markets with 100-130 seat demand) if they dont replace the 732.




Panam, TWA, Ansett, Eastern.......AC next? Might be good for Canada.

I can't find this "other thread", but aren't Ryanair's new 738s registered EI-D** whereas the 732s were EI-C**? As far as I know, they never use a registration twice in Ireland.

Maybe they could borrow a few NW DC-9s?
Exactly what I was thinking, is it just me or is Ryanair's fleet and the replacement of the 732 discussed nearly as often as the NW DC-9? So many threads about Ryanair's 732 (thanks to a.net user European) that it's already getting hard to find that "other thread"...

Pearson,,,can honestly see them using a 738 on the DUB-LPL,LBA,BLK,MME,ABZ or similar type routes? i dont think the demad is ther with the exception of LPL maybe...they drop a few of the 732 routes I think which also turn out to be a protest to the Irish government over their inaction over T2 at DUB. It would be a good excuse for them

I think Ryanair is intending to drop routes that the 737-800 can't operate. It's already warned Derry Airport that if it doesn't increase it's runway length they will cease operations next year. The thing is Ryanair has the power to be able to fill aircraft. If it sells 50% of seats on every flight at the lowest fare (which it claims to) then seats should fill up. The everyday leisure traveller (like myself) looks at where's cheap to go and then what there is to do there. If the flights are cheap enough then the passengers will come. I think Ryanair hopes it will eventually save on costs by having a universal fleet. Ryanair seems to be keen on the BIG filler routes anyway, if a route was underperforming (ie only haveing say 60-80 PAX on average per flight) I'm sure it wouldn't last long.

The fuel advantages of the CFM-56-7 are so good, that they outweigh things like staffing, etc. Also, there is a lot less MX expense on the 738s, as well as no need to dedicate planes to certain routes, FR can fly any plane at any time.

>They are starting to replace some of them with the 737-800, but will they only buy 737-800s or will they buy annother other aircraft like the A319/A320?<

They have over 200 737s in the fleet or on order, with more on option. They are not buying anything other that the 737. Also, when you consider the things Mike O'Leary has said about Airbus and EADS, I don't think they will be talking anytime soon. They did talk to Airbus about switching to an A320 fleet back when they made their second (there have been three, the second being the biggest) order for the 738. They used that as leverage to get a better price for the 738 and Boeing was more than happy to oblidge. They are now one of Boeing's flagship carriers and will not be ordering anything else for some time. The only airline less likely to fly A320s that FR is WN

Remember that the 738 has probably lower operating costs than the 732, so they can at worst leave seats empty. But it's the cheapest LCC, they just offer what people buy, und if one route doesn't fill the 738, it'll be closed. They don't care if somebody needs to fly that route. And there are many other routes on which the 738 is filled.
