I was wonderig why Ryanair didn't add 739ER to its fleet for its high density routes. What do you think?

In a word, standardisation; it's best just to have one type. Also, for the extra 25 or so seats, would that translate into extra profits, or would they end up having to sell those extra seats at rock-bottom prices. Finally, does the ER's extra range provide anything that FR actually needs on its current network?

So, for all of these reasons, I'd say "no".

Extra seats would mean another crew member. I think if FR does well on a route, they just add frequency, which is easier than adding a small sub-fleet

This has been discussed before, i'm sure if you do a search for Ryanair or FR you will find it.

If I rememeber correctly i was due to fleet commanality, the extra seats would mean that the 739's would only be effiecent on certain routes, FR are all about keeping things simple and the same.

The extra crew member also poses an issue for them, extra wages means more for flights, more money to fly with them.

I also dont think that FR nee the 'ER' capability. Unless they were looking to expand further afield from UK bases, Canaries etc. If it's not broke...

Now Jet2 would be able to use them in my opinion.
