Surely not. Not so long back, he was going to ground his planes post-Brexit.

Ryanair's Michael O'Leary threatens to ground planes after Brexit to make voters 'rethink' withdrawal
Ryanair is threatening to ground its planes after the UK withdraws from the European Union to persuade voters to "rethink" Brexit. The Dublin-based carrier's chief executive Michael O'Leary said he wants to "create an opportunity" by making people realise they are "no longer going to have cheap holidays".
The reverseocycle has been deployed.

Abuse and nothing at all to add.
Tactics without strategy, the noise before defeat.
The ERG march forward seems to have stalled.


Johnson, almost completely silent. Rumoured to be in something of a state having finally realised that Brexit has wrecked something more important to Boris than the Conservative party.

Davis missing presumed something or other. Andrew Bridgen hasn’t exactly covered himself in media glory.

Redwood looked really shaken on BBC 2 this morning. The B team having been abandoned by the leaders doesn’t seem to be handling this very well at all.

Things seem rather chaotic in the brexiter world, it looks as if my original prophecy of a Pyrrhic victory was far too optimistic.
It's ok; the Coach will be on here soon with some of his cod Churchillian inspiration for the team, and we'll doubtless get another reminder that Saint Nigel of the Unfinished Business will be on the radio again spouting bollocks.
 
But didn’t the remain campaign say that Ryan Air would be cutting back after brexit?
They did. But their eye will always be on the cash. No doubt they have identified a need to airlift millions of Remainers to safety in the EU in the Spring. A reverse Berlin Airlift if you like.

Will the empty planes be flying back to the UK with U.K. manufactured pharmaceuticals for distribution to the U.K. hospitals because the non EU fuel we import won’t be available for lorry drivers to use?
 
There is article 24 of the WTO charter.

Remember that most of our trade at the moment (and it’s getting ever increasing) is done under WTO regulations.

Also remember that the WTO is continually pushing to lower tariffs across the board.
I wonder what the WTO rules might look like by the time the UK finishes it's transition period out of the EU in 202x?

'A concept paper, delivered by the commission to the WTO, is said to be a “a basis for discussion with the European Parliament, the Council and other members of the WTO, in response to the conclusions of the European Council of 28 June 2018, which invited the European Commission to propose a comprehensive approach to improving together with like-minded partners, the functioning of the WTO in crucial areas”.'

You seem to think it’s the ETO, rather than the WTO. Factor in USA China and a few others.

Not at all however, the EU may being trying to make it that way. The question is how much, if any, leverage the EU may have over the WTO, which btw Trump's USA appears to be walking away from. I am not predicting, or willing, this to occur, but it may make some pause for thought when the stock answer to any Brexit obstacles is 'we'll go with WTO rules'.
