Could Ryanair Order The 737-700?

With the 737-200s being retired, that leaves FR with only the 737-800 which has 189 seats compared to 130 on the 732s. On routes such as LDY-STN, I believe 40 seats are blocked off due to a/c performance at LDY. I'm wondering whether FR would consider ordering 737-700s for routes such as this, and also other routes such as flights to Obscure places like Limoges, Nimes and Edinburgh.

Edinburgh, obscure! Can tell you're a Glasgow boy! I don't know whether the -700 is in FR's plans, I mean a lot of the routes flown out of STN now with -800's are quite obscure, whether or not the catchment area down there warrents the seats I don't know. Up north might be a different matter, although MAN-DUB has the occasional -800. LGW-DUB must be a popular route, but seems to be a classic more often than not. They would probably rejig the frequency of the flights than change the aircraft type.

Just curious, but do they still operate the ex-Buzz 737-300s?

The question (of all questions) would be: What´s the load factor on a FR B738 needed in order to operate at break even (taking all factors like ticket price, revenue from onboard sales, etc. into account) ...

Depending on the answer, FR will either look for smaller a/c (B737 or B736) or reduce flights once the venerable B732 is retired from FR´s fleet.

Im flying MAN-DUB in September - will the 732 still be around? I'm hoping so!

Or Mr. O´Leary will surprise the whole world again when he orders a considerable number of jets from EMBRAER as replacement for his B732 marketing as "RyanAir Baby" !

Nope. A couple have gone to BMI Baby (TOYA/B IIRC)

I flew a -200 in April and asked the FA and was told that they would last the year, but don't shoot the messenger! The last flight (FR558 I think) is often an -800.

Edinburgh.

Funny

Limoges, Nimes

Those destinations already get 738s

There is no reason for that. Though LDY's runway is short, FR's stage lengths out of there should allow them to take off with a full load, especially considering the fact that they don't carry cargo

Oh no  Sad I'm flying bmi baby in September AMS-EMA. I really hope they don't put one of these -300's on that route that day... Those aircraft were in a really bad shape with FR.
Does anybody know if bmi baby installed new cabins inside those aircraft?

Thanks
