RYANAIR FLIGHTS HIT BY BREXIT DESPITE FALLING PRICES18/10/2018
RYANAIR FLIGHTS HIT BY BREXIT DESPITE FALLING PRICES   Ryanair has cut its annual growth rate for UK flights from 15 per cent this year to 6 per cent next year because of the decision to leave the European Union. As a result, there will be around five million fewer seats to and from Britain than originally planned.行李託運 The budget airline, which is Europe’s largest, had campaigned prominently for a “Remain” vote in the EU referendum. Michael O’Leary, the airline’s chief executive, said: “We were planning to base up to 10 new aircraft in the UK, now there will be none based here – though some will fly in to the UK.” The planes will instead be based in Germany, Poland, Italy and eastern European nations.Fares will fall by 10-12 per cent for the rest of the year,” said Mr O’Leary. “In the short term that’s good for customers. Much of it is being funded by lower oil prices. We will pass [lower costs"> on to passengers in lower fares.” But he predicted that the longer-term effects will be harmful: “There’s an awful lot of rubbish being talked over here about ‘oh, there’s no effect’. As fares get cheaper more aircraft will be moved away from the UK over the next few years.”The airline has also called on the new Government to be “radical” with its decision on airport expansion in South East England, demanding one new runway at each of Heathrow, Gatwick and Stansted. Mr O’Leary said such a decision “will finally resolve the runway capacity issue for the next 50 years, while ensuring competition between airports delivers efficient facilities and prevents airlines and passengers being ripped off by gold-plated monopoly runways”. He said: “It’s not in my interest to advocate a new runway at all three airports, but it’s what London needs. The obvious long-term solution is remove the politicians, to upset all the ‘nimbies’ at the same time.

International discount airlines18/10/2018
International discount airlines      America’s Smallest Discount Airline Wants to Emulate EasyJet With Cabin Retrofit Project   so wants to keep the brand equity it earned when it was a full-service airline. Can this strategy work?Cheap Flights from Shanghai to Takamatsu A sleepy U.S. airline with a strong following in Minnesota is getting a makeover as it prepares to expand into more cities. Minneapolis-based Sun County Airlines announced Wednesday it plans to spend $20 million to retrofit its cabins, adding new economy seats and streaming entertainment passengers can watch on their own devices, while it trims legroom for some customers and removes first class. The project marks the first major customer-facing move for Sun Country since private equity firm Apollo Global Management LLC acquired it early this year. Customers should start seeing changes in 2019. Sun Country, which by year-end will have 30 Boeing 737s, is not a well-known brand outside of Minneapolis. But that’s changing as newish management, led by former Allegiant Air executive Jude Bricker, who joined in July, 2017, reshapes where it flies. While Minneapolis is still its main hub, Sun Country is expanding to routes like Los Angeles to Honolulu, Seattle to Anchorage and Dallas to Las Vegas. Bricker likes to chase routes where there’s so much demand larger carriers can’t offer enough seats to satisfy it.Cost control is important, and even before Apollo bought the airline, Sun Country added fees for passengers, including for carry-on bags and seat assignments.  Still, even though they have cut staff, Sun Country executives say they’re not building an ultra-low-cost carrier like Frontier Airlines, Spirit Airlines or Allegiant. Instead, they say they seek to create a discount airline that emulates EasyJet’s slightly upscale European brand. “They are an airline that does a good job of delivering good value,” Brian Davis, Sun Country’s senior vice president for commercial, said in an interview. “We will have a nice, comfortable experience for everyone.”
