The problem is not Ryanair, the issue is BAA and it's monopoly. The government's continued failure to tackle this will only add to the problems the travel and tourism industry are facing.
In this instance even I agree with Motor Mouth O'Leary
Ryanair are real business people, when things get tough,they cut, its hard on some, but save others.In a competitive business you must keep your eye on the ball,not your head in the sand, especially now ,in a uncertain business world.I admire Ryanair they are positive when their competitors dither.they will be around a lot longer than some aeroplane companies.Yours, Lyndon Sullivan @lindano on twitter.
Ryanair's offering may be low frills but they have managed to revolutionalise short haul air travel. People cannot expect high quality service when they are traveling virtually free . If you keep an eye for Ryanair's special offers you can travel most of Europe for a couple of euros. I have an issue with people who complain about paying the measly taxes and charges as Ryanair ,are, after all a business ,and need to cover costs somehow. Boo to all those Ryanair haters.. we would be alot poorer and less well travelled without the budget airline. In relation to pulling out of routes, it is extremely unfortunate, but like all businesses, they need to adapt to stay profitable. I would like to point out that I do not now or never have worked in any capacity for Ryanair.
Tough case study. They are rude.
And it is effective?
