Its doing it with one 737 at a time in Europe. In a place, where often a plan does not come together. Airbus says its A320 NEO is better than, well just about anything Boeing has tried. Then here comes Ryanair on the A-320 heels throughout Europe.
Quote: Investor's News
"Most recently for the quarter ending on 2015-03-31, Ryanair Holdings plc (NASDAQ:RYAAY) posted a surprise factor of 140%. The company reported actual earnings of $0.12 which was $0.07 away from what analysts were projecting on a consensus basis.
“Ryanair Holdings plc (Ryanair Holdings), is a holding company for Ryanair Limited (Ryanair). Ryanair operates a low-cost, scheduled-passenger airline serving short-haul, point-to-point routes between Ireland, the United Kingdom, Continental Europe, and Morocco. As of June 30, 2012, the Company offered approximately over 1,500 scheduled short-haul flights per day serving approximately 160 airports largely throughout Europe with an operating fleet of 294 aircraft flying approximately 1,500 routes. Ryanair sells seats on a one-way basis. The Company also holds a 29.8% interest in Aer Lingus Group plc. As of June 30, 2012, Ryanair’s operating fleet was composed of 294 Boeing 737-800 aircraft, each having 189 seats. Ryanair’s fleet totaled 294 Boeing 737-800s at March 31, 2012. As of June 30, 2012, Ryanair owned and operated four Boeing 737-800 full flight simulators for pilot training.”
No matter how much Airbus touts its aircraft the bottom line speaks louder. A 140% increase in financial performance is shared by the 737 performance. Ryanair has made inroads into the European market that Boeing itself has not made through its marketing. Ryanair is simply slamming the Region's market with the 737-8 NG. What's up next does not bode well for operator's of the A-320 NEO. Ryanair is coming to play with its huge 737 Max-200 order. You may say, "what's a Max 200"?
Here it is with its 197 seats
The Max 200 is the consummate people mover at 522 MPH. It will go three thousand miles from where you will be standing in the Jet Way. The "I want outa here", appeal at a discounted price, targeting the central demographic of the traveling public.
