Even with 18,000 flights cancelled, almost nobody is asking if the outspoken chief executive is still the right person for the job
Michael O’Leary is a lucky man. As the Ryanair cancellation crisis has gone from bad to worse, despite the chief executive’s insistence that it wouldn’t, almost nobody is asking whether he is still the right person for the job.
The question would be asked at most listed companies in Ryanair’s position. The second round of cancellations will affect 18,000 flights on 34 routes between November 2017 and March 2018, which suggests the original rostering plans weren’t merely wrong, but miles off target.
