Ryanair tries to negotiate separate deals with pilots by country rather than on a European basis. It has already said it does not recognise EERC. "Divide ut imperes!"

At this morning's press conference, MOL revealed that Ryanair would like to increase the number of its stationed aircraft in Brussels from four possibly to eight, once it takes delivery of the B737 MAX200s in 2019. These aircraft make less noise, which will enable additional departures between 6 and 7 am when the noise standard is more stringent.

They said also that they wanted to be bigger than SN this year. Is this then based on market share or absolute numbers or both?

There is no way they can become larger than SN this year: 8.3m passengers will always be lower than SN.

After W6, Vy, now Fr is interested in VIE

From Ch-Aviation

Ryanair (FR, Dublin Int'l) is weighing up the possibility of launching flights out of Vienna within the next 12 to 18 months, CEO Michael O'Leary said during the annual Airlines for Europe (A4E) gathering in Brussels.

"There's new management in Vienna airport, they're making some very progressive moves towards finally introducing some new route incentives and some traffic growth incentives and those are very interesting," O'Leary was quoted by Reuters.

According to the ch-aviation capacity module, the Irish LCC currently serves the Austrian capital out of Bratislava, located some 50 kilometres from Vienna. Ryanair operates a total of 55 weekly departures to 16 destinations out of the Slovak capital's airport, including 12 weekly departures to London Stansted and seven to Dublin Int'l. Ryanair is currently by far the largest operator at Bratislava with 70.9% share of weekly capacity out of the airport.

Ryanair's move would follow other LCC carriers which have announced growth at Vienna. Wizz Air will launch its inaugural services out of the Austrian gateway in late April 2018, following which it will establish a base at the airport in June. IAG International Airlines Group has also announced it is planning to develop its low-cost unit Vueling Airlines' presence in Vienna following its recent unsuccessful bid for Niki. For its part, LaudaMotion, Niki's successor, has not, as yet, announced any routes out of Vienna.

easyJet already operates 89 weekly departures out of Vienna, which is the formal base of its European unit, easyJet Europe. It is also a significant base for Eurowings, Lufthansa Group's low-cost unit, which operates 189 weekly departures out of Vienna. The largest operator at Vienna is another Lufthansa Group subsidiary, Austrian Airlines.

They may have such ambitions, but I read in the press they will offer some 8.3m seats in Belgium 'this year', which in ryanairspeak actually means from Q2/18 till the end of Q1/19 (so shifted by 3 months); Brussels will likely fly over 10m customers over the (earlier) calendar year 2018, so it's not even close?!
In fact the gap seems to be widening and ryanair are currently loosing market share even with this result, so I wonder why they'd make such knowingly wrong claims, although a fair bit of trumpism has never been unfamiliar to Ryanair's communication style of course.

Besides, with Brussels Airlines now an integral part of Eurowings, I wonder why Brussels hasn't started counting customers of Eurowings to/from our country as well? Ryanair adds all of their Belgian passengers up too, regardless whether they fly on Belgian based planes or not.

Why not go one step further and consider the whole Lufthansa Group as one airline vs Ryanair?

Ryanair still communicates being "Europe's number one airline", although in 2017 they carried 129 million passengers vs the 130 million of the Lufthansa Group.

Lufthansa Group should also consolidate its figures for Brussels Airport: SN + LH + EW + LX + OS. I think that doing so would push them above the 50% market share at BRU, and perhaps even on the Belgian market.

With BRU serving roughly 75% of the Belgian market, an airline (group) that only operates from BRU would need at least a 67% market share in order to capture 50% of the whole Belgian market. I don't think the LH Group is anywhere close to that.

In the meantime, no one speaks about all the daily BRU-Malta flights being transfered to Charleroi as from 25 March (why???), so that's another lost route from Brussels together with Hamburg last year and Bratislava 2y ago.
So, ok, Amman and Marrakesh are added but it's at the very end of the year and it's each two flights a week, so nothing to be compared with those daily (Malta) or twice-daily routes (Hamburg)! Plus, so many routes have less frequency than before (Rome, Berlin...).
I'm puzzled, are they wanting to grow or not?!?

well, for me an airline is not the same as a group.
If you fly LH or Eurowings, it's definitely not the same in-flight experience, as each airline has its own "image brand" etc.
For me, FR is the biggest airline in Europe and the 5th in the world.
