Ich mag Ryanair News. Ryanair streicht in den nächsten sechs Wochen 2 000 Flüge wegen Unpünktlichkeit …

Ryanair ist irgendwie eine spaßige Airline. Die Pünktlichkeit ist unter 80% gefallen. Um die Genauigkeit wieder zu heben lässt man jetzt einfach Flüge entfallen:

“Ryanair, today (15th Sept) announced that it would cancel 40-50 flights daily for the next six weeks (to the end of October) to improve its system-wide punctuality which has fallen below 80% in the first two weeks of September through a combination of ATC capacity delays and strikes, weather disruptions and the impact of increased holiday allocations to pilots and cabin crew as the airline moves to allocate annual leave during a 9 month transition period (April to December 2017) to move the airline’s holiday year (currently April to March) to a calendar year (Jan to Dec) from 1st January 2018 onwards. …
By reducing its scheduled flying programme over the next six weeks by less than 2% (of its over 2,500 daily flights), the airline will create additional standby aircraft which will help restore on-time performance to its 90% average.  Ryanair apologises sincerely for the inconvenience caused to customers by these cancellations. Customers will be contacted directly about this small number of cancellations and offered alternative flights or full refunds.”

Zur Presseaussendung: RYANAIR TO CANCEL LESS THAN 2% OF FLIGHTS OVER NEXT 6 WEEKS TO IMPROVE PUNCTUALITY

Doch ein eher unkonventioneller Plan 2% der Flüge einfach fallen zu lassen. Die Airline operiert scheinbar so an einem Limit, dass nur mehr diese Variante bleibt. Alles sehr knapp kalkuliert, aber nur so werden diese Preise möglich sein.
