Germanwings CEO Thomas Winkelmann recently predicted Ryanair's demise, saying, "I think the Ryanair model is coming to an end. The more Ryanair flies to a destination, the more losses taken by the airport and the local tax payers wont stand for that."
Ryanair responded by saying, "We only reply to airlines that have a significant market share. Germanwings is the fly on the arse of the airline industry, so we're not going to bother."
Another day in the world of European LCCs.
