Whilst trawling Ryanair's flights for NOV i was surprised to find that there were no flights from Dublin to Varies UK cities such as BHX EMA MAN but other airports were on sale...STN.LTN.LPL.GLA so Have they decided that the Irish sea does not give the returns?? I have tried this question before but have been asked to change the heading. I am still interested to find out whether they will or wont be flying several UK-DUB routes in the winter..Anyone know? They are on sale for all other routes from EMA so it is confusing....
You'll find that DUB-UK-DUB is of fundamental importance to FR. Indeed, just a few years ago - when it didn't fly nowhere near what it does now between the two - it was worth 30-50% (I forget precisely what) of its total annual revenue. Moreover, it was deemed that its DUB-UK-DUB flights subsidised its remaining network. That gap has now diminished, but it still exists, although I don't know to what extent.

I would suggest that the reason is a simple as they have not yet decided on the frequencies to be operated between Ireland and the UK. As has been said by Pe@rson, these routes are fundamental to Ryanair and as with all carriers, but particularly the low-cost carriers, schedule changes are advised to the public in incremental stages and not all in one announcement. All carriers announce schedule changes "when the clock changes", that being twice a year.
