Quoting HBDAN (Reply 3): But what does FR do? After the expansion at DUB no other routes were announced! Time for them to react...
Ryanair had some trouble with the deliveries of their new 737-800s, as a result of the strikes at Boeing. Many routes already announched, like the ones to be flown by the second aircraft at EMA and PSA, have been postponed as a result of this. I suppose they have postponed their new route development as a whole for a couple of weeks, so it will be in line with Boeing deliveries again.

That is the excuse. Its lack of pilot hours that have resulted in start-up delays.
Quoting Cornish (Reply 4): wonder how AF will react to a move in on what is likely to be considered sacred turf to them
This is a huge high volume, low yield leisure route, and perfect for a LCC. I could see this being at least x4 daily if EZY had the slots at ORY.

Quoting GLAGAZ (Reply 14): I'm sure GSM will be quaking in their boots at the prospect of 1x weekly ALC from EZY versus their daily ALC and daily MJV.
They should be; their monopoly is no longer the case, and you can rest assured that if the 1x weekly service is a success, which it will be, then GSM may find themselves up against EZY on many more routes.
Trespassers will be shot; survivors will be shot again!

Quoting GLAGAZ (Reply 17): GSM have a get out clause though if that did turn out to be the case. A little thing called "Long Haul"...
And indeed at the moment it is a "little thing." They will have to make a success of their long haul operation first and grow it to more than a couple of flights to Florida before it becomes a get out clause....
Just when I thought I could see light at the end of the tunnel, it was some B*****d with a torch bringing me more work

Well with 10 767's planned for the next few years I would like to think it will be a success.
EZY will still struggle against GSM in Scotland as regards outbound flights, but for the inbound flights they will most likely become the popular choice.
Neutrality means that u don't really care cos the struggle goes on even when ur not there, blind and unaware

A once weekly flight to Alicante is not a worry for GSM. The daily flights to ALC from Glasgow should be more of a worry to them. GSM long haul seems to be doing well sales wise though we don't know for sire until the first aircraft

Gaz, I know you dont belive Easy is a threat to GSM, but they are. Margins at airlines are wafer thin, and the smallest reduction in yield and volume tips a route from profitable to being a dog. EZY is a well known brand. If they struggle on routes, It is guarenteed that GSM will find it tougher also.
Quoting GLAGAZ (Reply 21): EZY will still struggle against GSM in Scotland as regards outbound flights
Just like they struggled against GSM to London from Scotland?
