Ryanair has cut its profit forecast blaming lower-than-expected air fares.
The airline’s chief executive, Michael O’Leary, said Ryanair could not rule out having to cut fares further. Fares are expected to fall 7% this winter.
He said the low fares were already causing problems for rivals, including Flybe which was rescued last week.
Full-year profits are now expected to be in a range of €1.0bn to €1.1bn (£880m to £970m), compared with its previous forecast of €1.1bn
