Ryanair has slowed growth to 4% (from 9%) from November-March and 7% in FY 2019. FY 2018 net income guidance was recently maintained at €1.4-1.45bn. Investor focus at the H1 results on October 31st will be on forward bookings, long-term structural cost issues, ongoing employee relations and the processes put in place to prevent similar rostering failures happening again. We still expect Ryanair to be a 200m plus passenger airline by FY 2024 with the highest returns in its competitor universe.
