MOL, interviewed live on BBC Breakfast this morning, was as entertaining to listen to as ever!

He stated that unless they reach a deal with Boeing by the year end, they will consider curtailing their plans for growth and instead start returning money to shareholders.

When asked what he would do if he were in Willie Walsh's shoes, he replied 'more of the same, in fact WW hasn't been radical enough. I was appalled to hear that BA staff meals cost £6.5m per annum, they want to reduce it to £2.5m per annum .... why don't they make the staff pay for their own bloody meals'!

In addition, Ryanair also talks about deferring or canceling 15 of planned 48 deliveries from Boeing next year.

Mr O'Leary does not appear to be happy with Boeing at moment.

We won't continue these discussions indefinitely and have signalled to Boeing that if they are not completed before the year end, then Ryanair will end its relationship with Boeing and confirm a series of order deferrals and cancellations.

We see no point in continuing to grow rapidly in a declining yield environment, where our main aircraft partner is unwilling to play its part in our cost reduction programme.

I cannot see why Boeing would want to sell any more aircraft to them as Boeing's own yield is decimated by secondhand Ryanair aircraft, which are usually sold on dirt cheap after a few years of being run into the ground.

Did I mention Airbus has already given them the finger? How can they be so arrogant in an effective monopoly? "I'd rather shut my airline than to pay a reasonable price for your aeroplanes." Who is their procurement strategist!? I'd love to meet him/her.

Any Ryanair shareholders here?

Quoting Cloudyapple (Reply 3):

Right, no aircraft manufacturer in the world would want to sell their product to one of the fastest growing airlines in the world in the midst of economic depression!

Congrats to Ryanair and that SOB MOL!

So, what is wrong with that? Their orderbooks are full for the next 4-5 years.

The margins from the Ryanair business are already very low, if not negative.

Probably, nobody is buying their planes right now, so they cannot get rid of them fast. Therefore, the price that he can sell the used ones and the price that he is being quoted from Boeing are way far from each other.

With an average fleet age of less than 3 years, I am sure he can try and run them a little bit longer than what his business plan calls for.

And at the same time Ryanair pressures Boeing with threat to cancel 737 orders.

I hope that Boeing can dump Ryaniar as the ... dump they are!

Like them or hate them, the Ryanair business model works! If you ran an airline, wouldn't you press Boeing for the very best possible deal?

I am touching wood as I type this ....

I have flown FR on 6 segments this year, simply because they happen to fly from PIK which is a 10 minute walk from my house - I've only once had a problem, turned up a STN for a 21:45 flight, got to the bottom of the stairs only to be told the A/C had gone tech.

Back to the terminal where we were quickly shifted to another A/C, finally leaving STN 55 minutes later than planned; arrival however was 25 minutes late into PIK, not bad I reckon.

In relation to MOL's inference that BA is laden with high costs, here's a question; why should cabin crew get free meals? I don't get free meals at work, and I don't know anyone else who does. Yet BA staff (and no doubt other airlines) tuck into business class fare on their flights costing £6.5m per annum - that is one hell of a cost saving for any company, isn't it?

I'm not, but I wish I did own some.

I thought about buying a few some years ago, but I didn't think the airline could keep expanding the way it has.

I made the same mistake with Allegiant. I was wrong on both counts.  Smile
