that's the limit, what a crap airline.


An appropriate adjective! The airline must be desperate: sell your Ryan
stock!

Correct, it's not April 1, but it's big free advertising for the airline.
That "news" seem to be broadcasted almost everywhere and Mr. O Leary isn't
paying a cent when his airline is mentioned.
And maybe , next month they'll announce they've changed their month thus
receiving more ad.

Not feasible anyway. How about those queues that form outside the john?
People will just grab the door when someone comes out, or are they going
to have a toilet hitler monitoring the line?

Door? There is no door, the toilet retracts into the wall until a coin is
inserted into the slot.


Oh right! One of those self-cleaning things that are always out-of-order
in France.

Maybe literally! What happens if a needly passenger only has U.S. or UK
coins? Or Swiss Francs? Will there be flight attendant parked at the
door to supply coins in the correct currency?

They should charge those cheeky passengers for breathing their air, too.

It sounds much better in French, but then, everything does.

My wife points out that only Irish Euro coins will work the toilet. Mr O
Leary's
staff will exchange GBP2 for one Irish Euro.

But nevertheless, whatever people are talking about that airline more and
more seem to trust them !
For my last trip with Ryan, Stockholm-Paris (NYO-BVA) i paid 611 SEK
(US$68) but for the return with Air baltic (CDG-ARN) i paid 1704 (US $189)
leaving US$ 121 for other things.

Like for taxi rides to Nyköping (and further to Skavsta) and from Beauvais
to Paris?
