According to check-in.dk Ryanair employees will now have to pay tax in Denmark. A change has been made in the double taxation agreement between Ireland and Denmark which will come into place Jan 1st:

Ryanair Boosts 2015 Goal After Quarterly Earnings Double

Ryanair Holdings Plc (RYA) lifted its fiscal full-year profit goal as Europe’s biggest discount carrier rolls out more routes and reduces unit costs.

Profit after tax for the year through March 2015 should be in the range of 620 million euros to 650 million euros ($832 million-$873 million), compared with the 580 million euros to 620 million euros previously forecast, according to a statement.

Extracts :

Ryanair today (July 28) announced a Q1 Net Profit of €197m, an increase of 152% over last year, although cautioned that this result was distorted by the timing of a very strong Easter in Q1 with no holiday period in the prior year comparable. Traffic grew to 24.3m as load factors rose by 4% points to 86%. Average fare rose by 9%, boosted by a strong Easter period, while total revenues were up 11% to €1.496bn. Unit costs fell by 2%, excluding fuel they rose by 1%.

" Our 4 new bases at Athens, Brussels, Lisbon and Rome are performing strongly, as customers switch to Ryanair’s lower fares and our industry leading customer service".

"In summary, we now expect full year traffic to grow by 5% to 86m. This increased traffic and higher load factors, combined with a slightly improved performance on unit costs allows us to cautiously raise our full year profit after tax guidance (from the previous range €580m to €620m) to a range of €620m to €650m. However this guidance, which is about a 21% rise over last year’s net profit, is heavily, reliant upon the final outturn for H2 yields over which we currently have zero visibility”.

My comment : Michael O'Leary always is very cautious in his "guidances" and it's very rarely that the actual profits are down on his public forecasts. No "break even next year" announced year after year ...

Ryanair wants a Cypriot AOC, so they can use Cyprus as a base to fly to Israel, the Lebanon, Egypt, and Russia.

Speaking in London today, O'Leary welcomed Boeing's intention to offer a capacity-boosted version of its re-engined 737. But he stresses there is no intention to amend the carrier's existing 180-aircraft order for 189-seat 737-800s due for delivery between September this year and 2018.

"We will take those aircraft as is, but for the next round of aircraft, [for the period] 2019 to 2025, we are looking at the 189-seat Airbus or what I hope will be a 197 to 198-seat 737," Michael O'Leary tells Flightglobal.

On the possibility that the Irish budget carrier could turn to Airbus for aircraft in the future, he says: "We have a long-standing relationship with Boeing, and in the future I suspect we will operate largely with Boeing aircraft, but I think we would be keen to operate some Airbus aircraft somewhere in the business and have two suppliers."

Ryanair from Brussels Airport: cheaper if you book on the Dutch version of the website than on the French version. Ryanair says it is a computer bug... (I would say it is a human error).

An example: for a departure on 1 August from Zaventem to Malaga, a French-speaking Belgian will pay 262 euros, whereas a Dutch-speaking on will pay only (!) 256 euros.

211 Euro if you book on ryanair.FR ..........

207 Euro if you book at the Swedish website.

But I guess you can only pay with the local bank cards to get that reduction ?

But Belgian, either Dutch- or French-speaking, have the same kind of credit card, and it seems it can be cheaper in Dutch ...
Just seen a CRL-MRS-CRL at 39,98 euros in Belgium Dutch, 40,78 in Belgium French ! :lol:

But it seems that in Dutch, it's the price if paid with a debit card, whilst in French the credit card fee (0,80 euro in this case) is included, the debit card rebate being available.

Interesting find.

Apparently due to a difference in the way they add credit card charges across the different versions of the website; it should soon be fixed by raising the prices on the Dutch version to those of the French one.

BTW- those are some quite high fares for those flights, especially given the very elementary product only!
Not only vueling or Brussels Airlines are cheaper, but even Swiss is cheaper via ZRH if these are one-way price quotes?

Ryanair prices are always high if you book only a few days before the flight.
BRU-Malaga two weeks later, ie mid-August, cost around 60 or 70 euros.

Well if the discussion is going that way.. Vueling is cheapest for that date 205 euro one way. Ryanair is about 100 Euro a few days later. All depends how full the aircraft is. Ryanair is 60 a week later , and 40 2 weeks later.

I don't know if you are all aware, but you will see the prices of the outbound leg drop if you pick a return flight further out at most airlines, so one-way tickets needn't just be compared to other one-ways only to find the cheapest one way option between 2 city pairs, something frequent flyers have long found out too.

I don't know what kind of IT tool you are using, but here at work we have a GDS fare optimiser and I have price quotes lower than 262 euro on AUG01 at quite some airlines flying from BRU to AGP, some non-stop, some via other hubs.

I would post a screenshot, but I can't do so from this station, but both other 2 direct options are indeed cheaper, as well as quite a few network air lines. On top of that, luggage is mostly included over there.

BTW- Sean, any particular reason why you've opted to post a quote of the most expensive of the 3 SN flight on that day, and just limited the scope to them?

As has been said numerous times, one really needs to shop around and compare not just prices, but also the whole deal with all things included (or not), because the days you could blindly book at any low cost and fly for peanuts are over: 262 euro single journey is a high fare by all standards these days!

Furthermore, the SN fare is for b.flex, hence not the basic fare...

I only noticed that now indeed, thanks André!

Guess I was too bit too eager to share the trick of also booking a return ticket to significantly lower the price of the outbound flight if you really want to compare lowest booking classes on a par.

So far for the one who's complaining about the bias of others all the time....

Shame on you Sean!

Ooooh shame :D
Whatever way you turn it, it was at least 100€ more expensive. Plain and simple NOT cheaper like you claimed.
