Ryanair is to close its GLA base from the coming winter and will transfer the aircraft to EDI.

It blames the move on 'the weaker Glasgow market where efforts to stimulate low fare demand are severely hampered by the continuing burden of APD'.

I find this slightly confusing because EDI is subject to the same APD as GLA. Is the GLA market really weaker than some of the other markets at smaller UK airports served by Ryanair?

GLA is a one-aircraft winter base although I understand there are two aircraft based there in summer. Does this signal a policy change, at least in the UK where Rayanair is extremely caustious about the possible effects of Brexit, where the airline might be looking to close more of its smaller UK bases?

Bournemouth comes to mind. I believe that too is a one-aircraft base.

So MOL now believes he has the power to tell the British electorate to change its democratically arrived at decision. What next? A demand to re-run a UK general election because he doesn't like the result or replace the Queen with an elected head of state? These are the rantings of a meglomaniac and I can't believe he is serious. I think it's MOL......being MOL.

He'd also have the views of his shareholders in this public company to consider if he ever did seriously think of unilaterally withdrawing the airline's aircraft from one of the world's leading economies.

Does he actually have the power though? Does he have the operational control to do something like that? It seems to me that MOL says one thing but that the airline then does something different.
If you look at other CEOs of airline groups they don't seem to come out with things like this. With Brexit to me it seems like it's personal to him.

On Friday there was a press release announcing S19 flights from a few countries which I think is a long time in advance by Ryanair standards.

Ryanair flight from Dublin suffers in-flight depressurisation before being diverted

Yesterday evening a Ryanair flight between Dublin and Zadar, Croatia suffered an in-flight depressurisation. As a result the Boeing 737-800 diverted to Frankfurt-Hahn Airport in Germany. Oxygen masks deployed but reports say that about 30 passengers were taken to local hospitals complaining of earache and headache.

The remaining passengers spent the night at Hahn and Ryanair admitted there were some problems in providing overnight hotel accommodation because of a shortage.

Ryanair has had a 20% drop in it's first quarter profits. It's shares have dropped by as much as 6.3% and 600 flights are being cancelled because of strikes by cabin crew based Portugal, Spain and Belgium.

Are Ryanair an airline heading for trouble or is this just a bump in the road for them?

I don't think it's anything more than a hiccup along the way. Ryanair had issued a profits warning last November. MOL puts the current situation down to more intense competition leading to lower fares but the airline believes it's on course to register a 10%-20% profit increase during the current financial year through strong levels of booking this summer.

Rising fuel costs will also play a part in the performance of most airlines.
