Surely not because they LH is not likely going to excercise their call option this year?
As inquirer and euroflyer have already said, that is a fairly normal business practice really, especially as there is no urgency involved.
Always found this a strange statement, especially as you must have known about the restructuring plans as from Dec. or Jan.
I don't know what plans you are hinting at there, but the only plan I know of is that of the 737\RJ85 phase out, a plan which is half completed by now. I am sure somebody can give you the exact fleet figures to date, but a huge cut (8 out of 14RJs and 4 out of 8 737s) has apparently slipped largely under the radar, probably because it only resulted in lower frequencies, rather than route closures...
The rest of the remaining RJ85s and 737s is said to be gone by the end of October, after which 6 southern European leisure routes are going to be closed, something which is also shown in the GDS, BTW (see the topic about W2012 news at BRU).
Any other firm plans you know of which you want to share, maybe?

Oh, I see.
Well everything is relative of course, but things could be much worse still.
Maybe it's because we're used to something already?1V1 wrote:What concerns any plans, I don't think this is the place to have a chat about that. Lets have a beer when you're in for the interview
You can buy me a beer any time and well have a look at your great pictures then, but don't expect me over on any interview. Even the latest offer to direct entry captains on A330 isn't going to lure me in: there's no way I'd be able to convince my wife to quit her job and when I look at her pay slip, I can't blame her.
But send my regards to all the ex Sabena boys there, I'll be over in november for a visit and a beach holiday.

Only CRL-based Ryanair staff will have to pay their taxes in Belgium.

Don't hold your breath for it; this will take years still.
