FTFA: 'How much will Michael charge per reply? And are you charging me to send this tweet?'

CSB- Flew from Stansted to Venice (really Treviso) in 1999, and at the last minute decided against flying RyanAir back and paid extra to fly from Rome to Gatwick. Once we were home in London, I realized there had been a plane crash at Stansted and had we tried flying RyanAir, would've been stuck at Ciampino at the mercy of Mr O'Leary, just before Xmas. Never flew them again, no matter the price.

Ryan Air. Like being a Jew in a boxcar headed for Dachau, but with wings.

I've flown Ryanair and never had a problem. It's cheap, and the cabin crew try to sell you stuff but you can easily bring your own sandwiches and buy drinks in the terminal. And flying out of some of their dinky airports is a dream compared to the big places like Gatwick. One place I've flown from several times the distance walking from the car drop off to the actual steps onto the plane is quite literally 150 feet, and that's including going through check in and security.

And their planes are almost all brand new. Average age of Ryanair planes is three years. For the big US airlines the average age is more like thirteen years...

From what I've read on Fark this guy is able to affect more than 100,000 people every day.

He's a serious troll.

When are your long-promised transatlantic flights starting, goddamit? I'm still waiting for Stansted or Luton to New England for less than $50.

Five years, but they are buying a ton of new 737-MAX and some of that new Chinese narrow body from Comac

Those disappeared with $50 oil. Plus, if I'm going to be on a plane for 7 hours, I need something a little better than "shut the fark up and sit down" and constantly hawking scratch-off tickets.

Actually, Ryanair isn't all that bad - I've flown them twice. I can put up with a lot to get a $30 roundtrip, inclusive of taxes and fees. I managed to book a completely free flight once (literally zero Euros) but ended up not being able to use it.

But if they put the coin acceptor on the loo, then forget it.

T-Servo:  RyanAir,

TV's Vinnie: Ryan Air



Ryanair, people. Ryanair.  Your gripes will carry far more gravitas if you learn how to correctly form the company name.

The words gravitas and Ryanair don't belong in the same sentence.

I don't fault O'Leary for a business model that obviously works, but I was really peeved at his attitude toward the Icelandic ash cloud, as if he knew much better than what scientists, engineers and pilots were advising.

/worked on this issue for USAF
//am going to start writing rYAnair just to bug you

Quite true

I don't fault O'Leary for a business model that obviously works, but I was really peeved at his attitude toward the Icelandic ash cloud, as if he knew much better than what scientists, engineers and pilots were advising.

I think (emphasis on think) he was proven correct in the end, the density (or whatever airborne ash is measured in)  was not sufficent to down a plane. In fairness to rYan-air, their safety record is pretty much perfect. He pushes shiat - but never beyond its limit.

His issue was that his airline was being held liable for an act of God, so I can get where he was coming from.
