“Quoted in the Dutch newspaper telegraaf.nl the CEO says that the awarding of slots to Ryanair is taking away valuable resources from Schiphol and threatens the integrity of the airport’s global hub status.”

What a bizarre quote; taking away resources!

Ryanair is an airline and slots are there for airlines to use, so if there are free slots, awarding them to Ryanair is using resources.

I suspect KLM are concerned, as they are about to be skinned alive on point-to-point flights, by a company they cannot compete with.

If they are more intelligent than the above quote suggests, they will explore ways of working with Ryanair.
