Ryanair CEO O’Leary in mind game bullyboy tactics with Boeing

Ryanair’s evil CEO Mr Michael O’Leary is again employing bullyboy tactics in an effort to scare Boeing into accepting lesser terms and conditions in the sale of 200 new aircraft to the Irish airline.

Negotiations have been ongoing for over a year now and O’Leary claims that Ryanair have “effectively reached agreement on the price for 200 aircraft, but Boeing now wants to renegotiate delivery terms that would be worse than we currently have”.

Ryanair’s board will meet Dec. 17. Mr. O’Leary said that if no deal had been reached by then, the deal would be off.

If the airline and Boeing can’t strike a deal, Mr. O’Leary has said that Ryanair will throttle back its expansion plans. It will defer deliveries from Boeing of several 737s ordered in recent years, cancel options to buy 10 737s, and distribute cash to shareholders. Beyond 2012, the company would largely stop growing for the foreseeable future, Mr. O’Leary has said.

A Boeing spokesman said the company wouldn’t comment on customer negotiations that were ongoing.

Well done Boeing, shame on you Ryanair. Grow up wont you.

  1. Airbus is cleary not an option as well! I read that this morning!

    “I would have no problem selling aircraft to O’Leary at reasonable prices, but I have not seen anything reasonable from him,” Airbus Chief Operating Officer John Leahy said today.

  3. Recently read an article in which “Leprechaun O’leary!” commented that he had cancelled his apparent order of 300 jets because of financial reasons, he probably expects Boeing to deliver for free. Even Airbus don’t want his business, now he plans to buy some kind of Chinese plane with propellers but the prototype has already crashed…!
    To add to this he suggested that Boeing were too stupid to be able to build toilet doors with money slots. Mr ‘o L either doesn’t understand that when toilets are removed and replaced with a single slot toilet, as well as extra seats to sit those extra passengers then more time will be needed to evacuate the aircraft in case of an accident. Hence – More doors, More escape chutes, stronger seat rails, stronger flooring – New aircraft type, New aircraft type licence and testing required… Either he is too stupid himself to realise this or he just wants the press coverage.. But I even read a recent article that the press are even getting sick of him now !!
