its was won on a small minority but Julie is right the uk public voted to leave.I feel there is too much hysteria and panic with regards to a Aviation dealwith the pound so weak incoming traffic from Europe/States/Asia is at record levelsso European Carriers will not want to be restricted in offering flights to and from ukWhere there is a issue i believe is Ryanair find themselves in an exposed positionif they dont have a UK Aoc as they may be limited only to flights to and fm Ireland(where all their Aircraft are registered)the only UK airline that benefits from having Aircraft based in Europe is Easy jet Jet 2 / Monarch / Fly Be /Bmi Regional operate from UK bases to Europe they dont operate from any EU bases within Europe (Where their Aircraft are not registered) so i cannot see their operations being impacted at all.i think the root of the issue to Ryanair is they are low cost and dont want to be over regulated or have a complicated operation by having costly additional AOC/OLand that is why you are seeing them panic.If they have any sense they will go and secure a UK Aoc that will protect its UK basesor it could fall fowl of a restricted deal that in effect would squeeze Ryanair out of UKNorwegian have complicated their operation with 3 Aoc (Norway/UK/Ireland) not by choicebut to get around the various rules that are currently in place and to have a plan B ifthe BREXIT deal is complicated , Easy Jet have done the same by stating they are starting up a Austrian AOCInstead of trying to bully everyone and sundry Ryanair should simply take the necessaryaction to protect its business they have bases in BHX/BOH/BRS/EMA/EDI/GLA/LPL/LTN/PIK and STN is their second largest base throughout their network if they cant operate then maybe it will be the making of Monarchor increase Easy Jets dominance in South East , Jet 2 have got about quietly planning thisoutcome by increasing their commercial foot print now to Stn and will grow this i am surei think Ryanair need the UK and if they dont want the UK Market someone else will step instop winging and take a reality check, and put the correct contingency plans in place to protect your business going forward, maybe a merger with Monarch would do just thatand be a bright move as opposed to Alitalia /Cyprus Airways before this and now Air Berlin which is all marketing and PR there is no intention to move into loss makinglegacy carriers... Buy Monarch on the cheap and secure your position in UK is my adviceto Mystic Micheal.
The UK Will lose ALL it's current 'EU Benefits' in 2019.
No automatic right to fly to european destiantions.
No automatic right to fly transatlantic.
You voted to leave.
Now suffer the effects and stop crying.
I hear Wales is a great place to take your summer holidays.
Ireland's interests lie with the UK (which accounts for 85% of its exports). O'Leary should not be biting the hand that feeds him.
I hardly think that being treated as a non EU airline is shafting the UK, who are leaving the EU.
