Ryanair Cancel Flights to Lamezia as of 30th Sept...
... with threat to pull out altogether on the basis of "inefficiency".
What's your Italian Like?
Also mentions reduction on the Pisa - Lamezia route.
Always concerned with any anouncement from Ryanair because they normally speak with "forked-tongue" or seek to "blame others" to gauge some sort of reaction.
If the statement it is to be taken at face value that they might pull out then the immediate questions that spring to mind:
1) Will they return the Summer Timetable in 2010? - Remember a similar incident in Sept 2008 when the Winter timetable was initially cancelled indicating it would not come back until March 2009 but then mysteriously returned in Nov 2008 having being cancelled for 2 months.
2) is this a typical business trick whereby the 4 to 5 year exclusivity agreement (i.e. no other competitor can have a UK to Stansted route) can then be renegotiated for an additional lenghty period stopping competitors moving in?
3) If they do walk away does this finally give Easyjet the opening they have been waiting for, especially for the UK?
4) Am i right in thinking that Ryanair returned in Jan 2006 therefore + 4 Years = Jan 2010 i.e. only 4 months away?
I personally would like to see a change of UK supplier flying direct to Lamezia to see how there "customer care" compares?
Any responses welcome.
