Ryanair: “Our Q3 Net Profit of EUR15 million was slightly ahead of guidance due to a combination of benign weather which caused fewer flight cancellations and significant de-icing savings, and a better performance on yields reflecting our planned winter capacity cuts, longer sectors, and higher competitor fares/fuel surcharges. Should these positive Q3 trends continue into Q4, we now expect our full year profit will exceed previous guidance (of EUR440 million) and rise to EUR480 million,” Michael O’Leary, CEO.
