Ryanair Right To Hold Off Another Day?

Seems that everyone is back in the air playing catch up with their flights. But one noticeable exception has been Europe's largest carrier by passenger numbers. Ryanair.

They have been far more careful than the other carriers. FR has been running a full schedule from their Southern and Eastern bases but the core of the network based in the North of Europe has been shut down for the better part of a week.

They also have a better DOC model and less overhead costs to carry. Thus they can operate more directly tied to their flights and carried passengers.

But did they err too much on the side of caution?

Their stranded passengers might think so, but they might just have made the right decision. Only time will tell. Their numbers will definitely take a big hit because they have less capacity spare to play with.
