Well it got people talking about FR longhaul and took some of the heat away on the almost 50% drop in profits for Ryanair.

I knew it was just a rumour. A morning Dublin newspaper reported today though that any announcement is to be made tomorrow.

Thats just a lift from the other "rumours" that Ryanair accidently let slip over the weekend to cover up the fact profits have collapsed.

There was no more substance in it this time than the countless other times this "news" has been leaked

That article is very simular to the BBC News article... MSNBC are just reporting what BBC did.

As I posted in the other thread......

Ryanair denies reports of US flights

Quote credit, e-tid:

Ryanair has no immediate plans to offer US flights for £8, despite media reports that it could start transatlantic operations as early as next year.
Reports ahead of the publication of Ryanair’s half-year trading figures, issued today, claimed chief executive Michael O’Leary would buy extra aircraft to operate two-class transatlantic routes, with the cheapest economy seats being subsidised by ‘very expensive’ business class.

A spokeswoman confirmed Ryanair was considering the idea, but said it had no firm plans as yet.

‘It’s not an immediate plan, but is something that has been talked about for the future. We have set no time frame,’ she said.



So I drive a 4x4. So what?! Tax the a$$ off me for it...oh, you already have... :-(

£9, then? 

Note that they didn't disclaim any serious interest in flying to the U.S., but merely (essentially) said it to be unlikely for a particular quoted price. Which still leaves us guessing as to if they would eventually launch such a service at some other price point.

Though, granted, seems like they'd need aircraft suitable for such trips first before giving any serious further consideration.

Also, do note they carefully further qualified it by saying 'no immediate plans' which could also potentially mean 'Not right away, but perhaps in the near [or far-off] future'.

Thus, there is still sufficient ambiguity in their statement. We do not know for sure they wouldn't do this in the near future, nor at what precise price point; only that they wouldn't be doing it for £8 'today'. They certainly left themselves sufficient wiggle room for the future.
