And now what?By IAG | December 19th, 2012 | Posted in Aviation News | 2 Comments
Ryanair's last of the 737-800s they bought after 9/11, at the lowest prices ever, is leaving Seattle. The earlier ones are getting ready for D checks. There are no new planes in the pipeline. An LCC makes better money from new planes under warranty with the best fuel burn. Ryanair cannot keep older planes because the numbers go upside down at their low pricing points. How much longer before MOL goes for MAX? He can't wait much longer. The MAX delivery slots are too far to the right already – even for him. Airbus won't even take his call. The C919 is still a dream.
As they say, timing is everything. The shoe is on Boeing's foot. This is going to be fun to watch.
