    Looking ahead.. Ryanair next summer 6th Oct 17 at 10:12 PM
    I have never had much hankering to fly Ryanair but I am seeing some pretty good fares next summer for places I want to go.

    But their recent screw ups make me nervous, what if it goes wrong next summer and they end up with not enough pilots for the flights they sold and start cancelling? - your left with accommodation going to waste and no way to get there!

    Now I know this could be the case with any airline, one year Monarch cancelled a route several months after I thought I was safely booked to travel on it.

    But obviously Ryanair have a pretty ropey track record now, but it would be suicidal for them to mess up a summer season as well.

    For me its weighing up the perceived 'risk' versus paying about 20% more for a more regular service like Thomas Cook.

    I am not so worried about financial loss, that's would be protected by the credit card, more the risk of being let down and sat at home watching the rain run down the window!

    Anyone have any thoughts?

    Just booked two Ryanair flights to go for lunch with some chums in another country and back again on the same day.
    €34 return.
    I'll pay more than that for the first bottle of wine.
    THAT is why Ryanair are the fifth most successful airline on the planet.

    passenger numbers yes, Turnover and profit no. Surprising, but In Europe, Lufthansa and IAG all have higher turnover+profit.

    IAG isn't an airline though. It's a group of 4 airlines.
