FR Or EZY Largest Fleet November 2005

Thu Oct 21, 2004 10:45 pm

Will Ryanair or easyJet have the largest fleet of aircraft for winter 2005, will FR be all B738 and U2 all A319?
The winter season can be a tough time but with fleet simplicity will they be able to have their best winter season ever?

Ryanair and easyJet are almost as big.
easyJet has the bigger fleet, with 23 (incl Switzerland) A-319s, 37 733s and 33 73Gs, total 93 aircraft, while Ryanair has 20 732/3s and 59 738s, but if you count in the fact the 738s have a higher capacity the difference is very small (easyJets fleet contain 14018 seats, Ryanairs 13731).
Expect in the next half year Ryanair to ditch their 20 732s but receive 20 738s and easyJet replacing a big part of their 733s with as much A-319s, but the lastter will keep a mixed fleet for a few years to come, their newest 73G is only 5 months old and no rumors yet that they are sold.
nobody has ever died from hard work, but why take the risk?
