Ryanair Follow Up

Just following up on last post, now that Ryanair site is available again, I can see that for the 55min flight to Stanstead from Dublin, they’re allowing from 1hr 15mins to 1hr 20mins in their timetable.

For reference, British Airways schedule anything from 1hr 20mins to 1hr 4omins on their timetable for flights from London Gatwick to Dublin.

Some interesting research in the US on this topic way back in 2ooo highlights this “padding” by airlines in their schedules. According to the report “Since the industry is highly competitive, airlines are eager to avoid the publication of negative performance results.”
