The Irish Times reports that FR is saying that it will follow through on its threats at the end of March.
The Ryanair move, which takes effect at the end of March, will see the airline reduce its Spanish flights by 12 per cent, with the biggest cuts in Madrid, Barcelona, Seville and Valladolid. It will stop flying from the northern airports of Asturias and Bilbao.
Is it all bluster or will they follow through? Are any reductions that may happen solely linked to increased fees or are the routes simply not as profitable as FR would like?
No doubt other airlines don't like the increased charges but has there been any similar threat from other carriers?
