O'Leary: We'd Buy A Dog

Now we All know MOL again:
[i]

"We are in ongoing discussions with Boeing and as soon as we can reach an agreement on price we'll place an order. It could be the -800 or the Max, whichever they discount the most - we'd buy a dog if it was cheap enough.[i]

MY guess is (take it for what it is worth) - they will make a deal of two reasons:

1: Ryanair need new planes bought at "reasonable" prices in their business model

2: BCA would love a solid order for let's say 150 of the 738 to keep the lines running smooth until the MAX is up and running. And I guess they will order for 100 MAX-8 A's well - to keep Comac out of the market.

Thoughts?

Boeing and Ryanair have already agreed on prices according to many sources. It is the resale time frame that they are negotiating over.

Boeing does need to solidify a few more NG orders until they can ramp up MAX production.

They dont need Ryanair's order to keep the lines running smooth, and Ryanair knows it. (See AS and WN orders.....)

If I was Boeing, I'd tell Ryanair to put up and shut up or go elsewhere. I think Airbus still doesn't want anything to do with Ryanair. So, that puts Ryanair in a bind.

Ryanair is really pushing it with almost everyone. Where do you draw the line?! This bullying by them will only last for so long....... Pissing off people is not the way to go anymore, it may have worked for Ryanair in the past but not anymore.

Seriously, though... MOL antics with Airbus pretty much leave him talking to Boeing. Boeing doesn't have to be as aggressive with Ryanair. Sure they want a deal, but they don't have kiss MOL's butt for it, either.

Agreed. Ryanair needs to work on their "people" skills if they want to get what they want. It's a fact of life. Piss off Boeing, they'll have a much harder time trying to get the things they need. I seriously doubt that Boeing consders Ryanair a VIP customer, much more of a thorn on Boeings side.

Boeing has a HUGE backlog for the 737NG and MAX. Why give away a large discount and block your production line for some serious time because O'leary threatens to order the C919.... Boeing is in a much better position than FR this time and they know that for sure. Just like FR knew they had the better bargaining position during last order, when the 737 backlog was much much smaller.

I also find it amusing how people on this site just think a manufacturer will turn its nose up at hundreds of millions in profits not to mention "selling the most planes" which seems to get these companies overexcited every year as the fanboys on either side jump for joy. Boeing is a successful business, Luckily they aren't as naive or emotional as folks on here.

Well it could be much cheaper to keep Comac out of the market now than later.

However they could ask Leahy for a donation

The more they treat the manufacturers like dirt, the more their life will be harder. Dint bite the hand that feeds you. Dint like it, take your business somewhere else. They can order the C919 for all I care, and I don't think A and B would care either. That doesn't hurt Boeing nor Airbus.

The COMAC thing is a O'Leary firing a shot across the bows of Boeing (and Airbus). In reality, he knows that COMAC can't yet provide either a product or a supply chain to match B or A. The C919 will almost certainly have a poor dispatch reliability compared with mature western products (see the Superjet as an example), and FR cannot afford anything that damages their 'on time' reputation.

Also, with the fleet size he has, he won't want to spend lots of money on pilot conversion courses (although he might tell the pilots they have to foot that bill themselves).

So, Boeing will get a decent order, and MOL will pay a decent price, no matter what he says publicly. The only doubt in my mind though, is that John Leahy will step in with a tempting proposition...business is business, and a 200 frame NEO order would get a very attractive offer for MOL...and Airbus is known to be buying market share at the moment.

Based on what I've read on A.net, this is similiar to the haughty attitude Boeing took when JetBlue was just starting up, ready to order their first jets. It seems Boeing took an LCC for granted...look at where JetBlue is nowadays and look at their fleet. I would bet based on that experience, Boeing has a poor relationship with JetBlue to this day.

The same with F9. At the same time, look where Boeing is today. B6 and F9 did not kill Boeing, nor the 737 program.

This is so ridiculous.

Imagine Boeing or Airbus saying this:
"keep your millions Ryanair, we don't need them, we are now non-profit organizations, we are only building planes for those airlines we like"

FYI. A sale of an aircraft alone is NOT the only thing that makes the manufacture money.

Umm yeah Boeing doesn't NEED Ryanair but Ryanair is still about to write a check for millions and millions of dollars and it would be stupid for Boeing to stick up the middle finger and forfeit all that money. Ryanair isn't weaseling Boeing into doing anything, they negotiating, like every other company in existence. It just so happens that MOL makes some strange comments while doing it.

Boeing didn't have to give preferential pricing to AA either for their 737s and could've told them to bug off because they disagreed... well, you know where I'm going with all this

Boeing would never tell an airline to "take a hike." It violates the most basic rules of business as a seller of products, "don't go out of your way to piss off the customer."

Yes I know folks will say FR does that all the time with their customers but FR is up front with those fees and costs for on board service. Their a/c fly full pretty much everywhere all the time.

I suspect Boeing will be polite and will listen and will give a discount but won't give away their bottom line for the sake of filling orders for an a/c that is already selling so well.

The alternatives for FR aren't so appealing, they'd have to transition to another a/c with the training and other issues that go with the switch plus take on an a/c that may not be as reliable. Not a pretty prospect for an airline famous for absurdly short turns.
