    So, to sum up what we've learned so far:
    1: Ryanair don't know what they're talking about.
    2: The Graun are so gullible / desperate for a bad-news Brexit story, they'll run with it anyway, even though a tiny bit of "research" will prove the "story" to be complete bollocks.
    3: AtW is hovering over the refresh button, waiting for the next Brexit DOOM™ story to appear, and at no point does he engage the mental capacity (insert your own joke here) to ask himself whether it has any actual merit whatsoever.

    I think we're done on this one. Next.

    Giving the fact that Ryanair is mostly used by poor E.Europe immigrants, this news is more of a Brexit Boom™

    I went on a Ryanair flight once. It was like some form of sensory deprivation for 3 hours. Once they're forced out of business by Brexit they can put their planes to good use torturing ISIS persons by flying them round for a few hours and selling them tat.

    The issue is where they're based. BA can fly from Heathrow to anywhere in Europe, but they wouldn't be able to operate a service from Paris to Berlin for example, only EU carriers would be allowed to do that. And EU carriers wouldn't have a problem flying to and from the UK. The big problem for RyanAir is if they're based at Stansted they can't fly between other EU airports.

    I think.
    Aren't BA owned by IAG though which is based in the EU

    What do you think will happen with prices on your favourite airlines once Ryanair is out of business?

    It doesn't work with nationalists. They will say they are happy paying twice for easyjet and BA

    It's used by all income groups from E. Europe and those from the "proper" Europe, because budget airlines are often the only ones that fly to airports other than the capital cities of E. Europe.

    Well, if you give London Ashford Airport a nudge... it may end up on the other side of the channel and be called... London Calais Airport maybe?

    I frankly don't care - I've never flown Ryanair (the wife has, she really didn't enjoy the "experience") mainly because I'm a teeny bit suspicious as to how much of the £29.99 fare actually goes into airline maintenance. I can't even get a return to Reading on the train for that, at least not at any time which is actually useful, so I'll pass on Ryanair, thanks.
