Classy

Ryanair announced in November that they would be doing £8 flights to the US by the end of next year, possibly too late for Gen Con but possibly in time for guests for next year's Dragonmeet.

I thought I'd see if there was any news on their website which was a mistake because the front page carries pictures from their charity calendar, female flight crew in their underwear.

You know we're all going to go and look now, don't you?

...What a tacky-looking site. Doesn't inspire confidence.

I think cheap is word that captures the whole of their operation.

Don't they make the money back with gargantuan surcharges for everything else they provide, like luggage and drinks?

Yep, alhough not necessarily gargantuan but certainly overpriced. They also levy a wheelchair surcharge on ever customer because they're not allowed to do so just to wheelchair users. And the charge is much more than the wheelchair use costs.

They're gits, but they're cheap gits. I'm sure human nature will prove that the latter overcomes the former...

Does it? I'm appalled. I will go and check exactly how appalling it is.
