Ryanair’s Planned $15 America-Europe Flights Grounded
In what seems to be a change in strategy or even some conflicting messages from different sections of the company itself, Ryanair has issued out a statement which is a total contrast of what it hard put out to the media just a few days ago.
A confirmation that was issued out by the company that stated that the company is working on introducing ultra-cheap transatlantic flights which would cost as low as $15, before fess, taxes and surges, was retracted by the company’s board.
The statement which was issued by the company to the London Stock Exchange states that, “In the light of recent press coverage, the Board of Ryanair Holdings P.L.C. wishes to clarify that it has not considered or approved any trans-Atlantic project and does not intend to do so."
That statement that was issued out on Thursday by the company’s board is huge contrast of what the company announced last week. According to CNN Money the Ryanair sent them the following email:
"The board of Ryanair ... have approved the business plans for future growth, including transatlantic. We would like to offer low cost flights between 12-14 European cities and 12-14 U.S. cities. The business plan is there, but it's dependent on attaining viable long-haul aircraft, and we estimate that's four to five years away."
That said the Financial Times is reporting that Michael O’Leary, a very outspoken Chief Executive of Rynaair, said that the company had earlier made a mistake adding that the whole thing “was a miscommunication.”
