    Will this mean lower Ryanair prices as the customers will not have to subsidise the horses? Or do the horses subsidise the passengers?

    Psst, wanna buy Tiger Roll?

    Be careful what you get served to eat on the longer hauls

    Never known Ryanair to subsidise anything other than himself. He probably hasn't paid his landing fee's.

    When I first moved to France 22 years ago you would regularly find horse meat on the meat counter in the supermarkets. Now you have to hunt for it and only seems to be available in the large supermarkets. Taste quiet good.

    Perhaps he's going to offer the service himself, after all he f**ks everything else.

    To an airport of their choosing, and then offers you an expensive ride on their bus for up to 2 hours to the city you thought you were flying to - unless you do your research properly.

    I flew to Malaga with them last weekend and it was Malaga

    As others have said you have to research and not be a fast fingered freddie or you may come unstuck.

    On time. Cheap and probably won't lose your bag. Those are the good points. The negatives. Well I guess you have to expect them at the price point.

    Oh and I used to be a Captain flying Ryanair aircraft. Its "Ok"

    I was a B737 Captain but not Ryanair.

    Re 'On time', maybe you would like to comment what I have posted elsewhere - that their punctality record is skewed because the published times are longer than needed for any particular sector, but there are few routes where they can be compared with other carriers because of the airports used.

    He is the boss ,Whatever goes wrong stops with him regardless of whose fault it is ..same in any job. If my blokes made a mistake the fault is mine, no discussion.
    I don't use them personally , have never used them & never would. I just have to sort out instant solutions when flights are delayed, cancelled, bag sizes are constantly changed + dealing with whatever countries air bureaucracy for the complaints + the ongoing travel arrangements that are affected .
