Just to be sure, I asked TUI fly Belgium about Montpellier. Their reply: "We have no intention to take over the Charleroi-Montpellier route at this moment."
Thanks for the info

Ryanair plans to transfer most of its aircraft based in France, Italy and Germany onto its Maltese AOC. The process began in May 2019.

Ryanair to likely cut back its Glasgow, Edinburgh and Belfast routes in the event of a no-deal Brexit, says chief executive Michael O’Leary.

Rumors circulating that FR may base 4 737s in Vie - Lauda (OE) has too high of a cost structure base and they have to present a plan to lower their costs. As I say rumor for now.

In the coming weeks, Irish low-cost airline Ryanair will lay off 900 employees, Ryanair CEO Michael O'Leary announced this news in an internal video conference.

In the video, O'Leary explained that the financial results of the airline are under extreme stress: high fuel costs, fierce competition on the European market, the higher pilot wages and the worldwide grounding of the Boeing 737 MAX of which Ryanair ordered 135 aircraft of the MAX 200 “Gamechanger” type. The aircraft has already been grounded since 140 days.

Possibly, another 600 jobs are at stake during Summer 2020.

Err, yes the fuel price has "increased by minus 10%" in the last 12 months.

Ryanair always hedges a big portion of their fuel, due to this hedging the effect of higher fuel prices is delayed.
Your ‘just sayin’ is not appropriate.

Fact : the fuel did NOT increase during the last 12 months.

If your friend Mickey says different he is taking liberties with the truth in an attempt to put the blame on others. Actually, he goofed by hedging in an inappropriate way.

I said.

Hold your horses and get familiar with fuel hedging, which is done years in advance in some cases....

In fact Ryanair is anticipating lower demand due to increased ticket price and overcapacity. Those who put their head in the sand and keep expanding, when growth is not sustainable, will be in for a rough ride during the upcoming recession!

Horses under control thank you for the advice.
I am somewhat informed about fuel hedging.

Question : has the fuel increased during the last 12 months or no?

Probably not, but this is not relevant!
Today’s fuel could have been hedged two, three or more years ago.

Ryanair plans to close the bases of Las Palmas and Tenerife South in January 2020 and also Girona due to B737 MAX issues and disputes with unions.

Ryanair will close the base at Faro in January 2020 and lay off about 100 workers, while maintaining the flights.

Ryanair might also close the bases of Cork (Republic of Ireland) and Belfast (Northern Ireland).

This video appeared on social media, the passenger is forcefully being removed from the aircraft after he allegedly punched a flight attendant.

There should be other ways to remove somebody from the flight ...

Do you know what happened?
Were you there?
What makes you think other ways haven’t been tried?

So what do you suggest if someone refuses to come along? Knock them out first? Sedate them? What he and other passengers think is irrelevant, if a captain decides you’re not going, you’re not going. End of story

First of all, I am not against the principle of removing people from a flight if they are disobeying or unruly. But I simply don't like the sort of aggression: pulling, shouting, screaming ... from both parties (passenger / police officers)

Like this example: https://www.aviation24.be/airlines/taro ... assengers/

People screaming, children crying, etc...

Peace and love :-D

The captain is allways allowed indeed to decide it's a no-go. But the captain then has to respect legislation: tell the passenger he is denied boarding, give him the indemnity (400 € for a Faro-Stansted), rebook them on the next possible flight, and eventually book a hotel.

When crew (cockpit or cabin) refers to unruly behavior, they must respect the Contract of Carriage. And Ryanair's C of C is clear: when safety or security is as stake, passengers must obey all orders. But for all other matters, the C of C states that the crew must be reasonable: "...if, in our reasonable opinion, we may take any measures we consider reasonably necessary to deal with the situation, including restraining you. You may be removed from the plane and refused a seat on any other flight, and may be prosecuted for offences you committed on the plane...

That someone asks to be seated next to family member, is no unreasonable question. That someone switches to an empty seat next to a family member, is not unreasonable: it happens with all airlines regularly. How this cabin crew then managed that situation, is uncertain. But the newspapers quote witnesses, saying that the passenger wasn't unruly or abusive. So there must have been a better way to solve the issue then calling the police.
