Where Will Ryanair Put Its ‘Gamechangers?’
Boeing hinted it would launch a new aircraft, and it did: The 777-8F, a freighter variant of its 777X program. Launch customer Qatar Airways put in an order for up to 50 of the new aircraft. Meanwhile, Ryanair’s normally bullish CEO Michael O’Leary is less confident about summer demand. And network changes at the discounter make us wonder where the airline will put all its new Boeing 737 Maxes, or as Ryanair calls them “Gamechangers.” Madhu Unnikrishnan and Edward “Ned” Russell ask why Ryanair is still trying to make “fetch” happen.
