I see Ryanair have added some new routes into Exeter and Cardiff for next summer. It would be nice if we could get some new routes nailed on as well. I am curious as to what preferences forum members would have in this respect? I would like to see Madrid for starters.

Wether it's ture or not im not sure! But I did see a rumour posted on the LBA spotters Facebook page over weekend that Ryanair might be looking to putting 2x extra based aircraft into LBA.
Same poster also mentioned Vueling coming back along with a possiblity of Transavia and Norwegian. So I took it all with a big pinch of salt.

Does anyone know - are all the routes already bookable operated by aircraft based abroad? It would make sense for routes operated by LBA based aircraft to only go on sale once Ryanair have confirmed their intentions for 2019 in terms of based aircraft.

I can confirm that's a NO White Heather, as the following rotations are all operated on Leeds based aircraft by looks of things.

Gdansk = Wed & Thu
Krakow = Thu & Sat
Wroclaw = Sun
Alicante = Mon, Tue, Thu, Fri, Sat & Sun
Malaga = Tue (x2), Wed, Thu, Fri& Sat

The are plenty of other routes (Gerona-Barcelona, Pisa-Florence, Faro, Arrecife & Las Palmas) that see some if not all rotations operated by non Leeds based aircraft.

I've noticed that Ryanair have today released for sale there full London summer 2019 scheduled which includes flights from Stansted, Luton, Gatwick and Southend.

So I guess it's a wait and see situation regards Leeds/Bradford!

Whatever happens, it's doesn't smack of Ryanair stopping expansion in the UK due to Brexit does it??
I have received my statutory notification from Ryanair that as a u.k. shareholder, my shares will be bought back on the 29th March, a spanish friend of mine has received identical communication, but as a european shareholder.
Whilst I can understand MOL resentment of brexit, whatever deal we do or not do, will in the end force MOL to come of the fence and decide, where he wants to make his bed.
Easyjet have gone for seperate european and u.k. companies, I assume Jet2 will withdraw spanish based aircraft and maintain a u.k. company, what will ryanair do?
Little sign of goodwill between the two parties today, with Juncker making it clear e.u. membership means in the future, the euro being your currancy (next treaty change) and our prime minister in the house of commons making it clear, not a single penny to europe after the 29th of March without a trade deal (house of lords legal advise).
Maybe a coincidence they both threw a fire cracker in to the fire today, not sure helpful.

As far as I understand, if the is a No deal/ hard Brexit Jet2 would not have to withdraw its UK based registered aircraft from its Spanish bases at ALC & PMI because they only operate routes into the UK.
The only way Jet2 would have to withdraw UK registered aircraft from the 2 Spanish bases is if they decided to open up routes within Europe. eg ALC to AMS or PMI to DUS. The easiest way around that would be for Jet2 to apply for AOC from one of the 26+ remaining member countries like Spain.

As you say Easyjet have already sorted out an Austrian AOC to get around them problems, Whilst I'm sure Ryanair have applied to the UK's CAA for a AOC..

I am not sure I can agree with your assessment, certainly MOL in his press conference yesterday, especially detailing the situation with flying and his u.k. shareholders, seemed to be more in my court.
Whilst holding an AOC is one thing, your shareholding legislation is another.
MOL answer yesterday was to advise all u.k. shareholders we could still hold share after 29th March, but with no voting power, up there with many other MOL wide eyed ideas.
With regard to Jet2 the Easyjet route is not possible as Easyjet is 50% european owned, unlike Ryanair and Jet2, this is the big issue. Ryanair really has to decide is it u.k. or european owned, it cant have non voting shares as the way round (my view), Jet2 (Dart Group) to my understanding has a huge u.k. ownership base and has no chance of doing a Easyjet which has just got its share register over the 50% european limit.
If Jet2 holidays intends to fly to America their is no way they can apply for a european AOC, this is MOL dilemma, stay european and give up flying u.k. to the states.

Interesting as I am attending next weeks Ryanair AGM just had a circular this morning that all media is banned and restriction will be placed on shareholders.
It could be very lively as seems city institutions are not to support the companys plans on dealing with u.k. shareholders, no surprise there.
Its obvious that MOL intends for the company to remain european and therefore give up any ambitions to ever fly to the states from u.k. airports, it will though hold both european and u.k. AOC, but for american authorities will be have majority european stakeholders. allowing flights from southern ireland or mainland europe direct to the states.
This will be the position if the currant regulations the u.k. have with europe and america stay in place.
The main issue for Ryanair and Jet2 post brexit will not be its existing European network, but any future american network.

Attended the AGM today with the media as MOL had to back down and let them in.
ATC issues yesterday and today in Portugal, Germany, France and Spain, have had a huge effect on the schedule.
Whilst an agreement with the irish union, the company has been advised of strikes in Belguim, Italy, Holland, Portugal and spain next friday (28th) and it looks as if german union staff will also join in. strikes will continue on a monthly or more frequent basis.
Ryaanir have lost their court case in the european court on this union issue. whilst they hoped the Irish deal could be dovetailed in other european countries, the court has ruled every deal must be unique to every one of the 27 members
MOL was very quiet, he accepted the company had issues and it was his job to concentrate on these, rather then comment on his competitors and other political issues, he seemed very subdued. He tried to take away the heat of the union strikes, by outlining how many flights lost to ATC issues.
With both the union talks and the share issue situation (u.k. shareholders having no vote) , he is looking at an unattractive and financially expensive settlement for Ryanair, one that the city and investors find totally unacceptable and was avoidable
With these two issues asked, whether was wise to be as forceful in the past with his brexit views, he reiterated his earlier remark, that maybe, he would have been wiser in the past to seek a lower profile
Whilst I am not sure these issues serious enough for the P45, they do question whether he has allowed his personal views to cloud his business judgement, sad because he deserves all the credit over the last 3 decades for how he has built the company, you can object to some of the business decisions, but he did challenge the status quo.
