Ryanair boss O’Leary warns of ‘very difficult’ period for airlines

Irish carrier says it remains on course for recovery despite Russia-Ukraine war as rival Wizz Air reassures investors

Philip Georgiadis, Transport Correspondent 2 hours ago

Ryanair boss Michael O’Leary has warned that the travel industry faces a “very difficult” period but has insisted the long-term recovery of his airline remained on course despite Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.

The Irish carrier and its rivals have been forced to cancel and divert some flights because of airspace closures, while also facing surging fuel costs after the price of oil rose above $100 a barrel.

“I think it’s going to be very difficult for most airlines for the next 12 months,” O’Leary said on Wednesday.

Aviation consultancy IBA has forecast that the industry’s recovery from the pandemic will be delayed by at least two months after shares took a tumble. The MSCI index of European airline shares has lost nearly a fifth of its value over the past two weeks.

But O’Leary expects Ryanair to ride out the disruption.

Bookings fell 20 per cent week on week on Thursday and Friday following the start of military action in Ukraine, but have since recovered and were down about 9 per cent by the start of this week, O’Leary said.

“I think it will not have a dramatic impact on bookings, clearly if the war doesn’t escalate and spread elsewhere,” he added.

Ryanair has hedged 80 per cent of its expected fuel needs at $65 per barrel until March 2023, leaving it well protected from the sudden spike in prices and able to outcompete its rivals on ticket prices, O’Leary said.

But the airline still expects to take a $50mn hit on fuel over the next 12 months.

“It is not a huge amount of money, but it certainly makes post-Covid recovery much more difficult,” he added.

Ryanair and Hungarian rival Wizz Air have been forecast to emerge from the pandemic as long-term winners thanks to healthy balance sheets and ultra-low operational costs.

However, London-listed Wizz does not hedge fuel, leaving it badly exposed to oil price rises.

“Wizz, who like to portray themselves as a competitor to Ryanair . . . are completely unhedged, which is a crazy place to be,” O’Leary said.

Wizz moved to reassure investors on Wednesday and said it expected its operating loss for the year ending in March to be “materially consistent” with previous forecasts.

Wizz will fly 7 per cent fewer flights in March than originally scheduled, but chief executive Jozsef Varadi said planes would be redeployed to other parts of its network.

“The commercial and commodity impact behind the geopolitical crisis was in part offset by the improving post-Covid trading environment,” the airline said.

Ryanair will fly its biggest ever schedule from the UK this summer and O’Leary said he expected ticket prices during peak periods to rise because of higher fuel charges and greater demand for travel.

Ryanair would probably suffer losses around the middle of its forecast of between €250mn to €450mn for the year ending in March, he added.

Ryanair flew to four airports in Ukraine before the war began. O’Leary said aircraft would be redirected to other parts of Europe “for the foreseeable future”.

“We do want to see Ukrainians succeed . . . as soon as we can return there we will,” he added.

Apparently something like 45% of Ryanair ordinary shares are held by American Investors

I doubt 45% of RYA is held in ADR's

If UK investors are going to be forced to sell RYA

Then American Investors should also be forced to sell RYA

Norwegian axes long-haul flights and cuts 1,100 Gatwick jobs

Low-cost long-haul vision ditched as struggling airline announces strategy for survival post-Covid

Norwegian’s cuts were said by the pilots union Balpa to be further evidence of the industry’s ‘jobs death spiral’.

14 Jan 2021

Norwegian has announced it will no longer fly long-haul routes, even after the pandemic, bringing an end to its low-cost, long-haul vision and spelling the loss of about 1,100 jobs based at Gatwick airport.

The airline said it would retrench to a short-haul European network and domestic Norwegian routes for good, as it outlined its business plan for survival.

About 2,150 jobs in the UK, Spain, France and the US will be axed, with one union warning that the airline industry is in an employment “death spiral”.

The airline’s 1,100 UK crew and pilots had been furloughed since the start of the Covid-19 crisis. About 400 other UK crew who worked in short haul were made redundant last year.

The airline is going through bankruptcy protection proceedings in Ireland that will allow it to restructure and continue operations, by demonstrating a viable business plan to judges there.

Norwegian will no longer retain any of its fleet of Boeing 787 Dreamliners that it used to fly long-haul, and reduce its overall fleet to 50 narrowbody planes.

It was once the third-biggest airline at London Gatwick and pioneered low-cost transatlantic flights, but its ambitious expansion had already seen it run into financial peril before Covid-19 hit.

The airline’s plan focuses on saving Norwegian jobs and it is understood to be in renewed dialogue with the Oslo government about potential state support, two months after ministers said they could not invest more taxpayers’ money in propping it up.

Jacob Schram, Norwegian’s chief executive, said: “Our short-haul network has always been the backbone of Norwegian and will form the basis of a future resilient business model. By focusing our operation on a short-haul network, we aim to attract existing and new investors, serve our customers and support the wider infrastructure and travel industry in Norway and across the Nordics and Europe.”

The pilots’ union Balpa said it was further devastating news for UK airline staff, with about 300 pilots among the 1,100 Gatwick job losses.

Brian Strutton, Balpa general secretary, said: “The airline has failed for several reasons but there can be no blame apportioned to the pilot, crew or other staff groups.”

He said it was further evidence of the “jobs death spiral”, adding that “aviation remains in serious crisis”.

says the man invested in a company with £10billion debt, worth less than half what it used to be and getting smaller. It will also have to break up if they cannot prove at least half the investors are EU residents..
Sounds like you don't know much either. How's that cash burn going?

ryanair cruising around 52 week highs! Best model in the sector.

look at a 10 year graph comparing IAG and RYA

I think it will tell you everything you need to know about the difference between price and value and it's consequential effect on share pricing.

Have you been an investor/trader for very long?

Considering the current projections by rya (honest as ever) and the general situation it is a tribute to the business model that the shareprice has fared so much better than the rest. (exception WIZZ)
This I attribute to the foresight of investors both insti and pi who see RYA emerging from the ashes of covid a bigger stronger company. Probably with some cheaper max8`s or Dash 200`s (re branding)and possibly with an acquisition under their belt.

Yes it has, unfortunately 99.9999% of the worlds population can’t yet see it yet.

Eventually they will.

Mankind is facing a pandemic of unimaginable magnitude and suffering, combined with a world drowning in debt, that has zero chance of being repaid.

It is absolutely vital that you put family first , particular children

We are not far off, forced sellers of ALL ASSETS, (bar Gold , for immediate delivery)

Paper gold, might as well be flushed down the toilet.

I have no predictions on the outcome of this terrible virus.

I do have some predictions on the likely financial outcomes

1/ Most shares are not far off worthless as profits will be extinguished for years, even then, investors might pay a pe of 3 for the the best growth stocks.

2/ Most bonds ( company and government ) worthless as everyone defaults.

3/ House Tiny values after banks go bust and stop lending. No one has a job.

4/ Land for food production has some value but needs to be protected.

Trust in business goes down the pan in a straight line, world trade dries up as everyone wants to be paid up front.

The only medium of exchange for goods and services that CAN BE TRUSTED BY ALL is, GOLD.

No one wants printed sheets of toilet paper. ( money

It’s about to turn on a sixpence.

Governments will furnish the world with yet more, free cash, but they can’t control the mindset of the people, or the virus.

From now on, it’s about staying alive and doing your bit for others Add FavouriteE-mail AlertSkip Header

As an investor, what's not to like about that?!

As a punter, you're on the wrong forum.

This company has created its own Frankenstien monster. When the pilots hate the company, the staff hate the company, the customers hate the company, the investors hate the company, the MARKET hates the company.

So they will lose customers, lose money, lose pilots, get fined, lose more customers, lose more money.

This is the next in a long list of Air Berlin type failures imo.
