On the norwegian newspaper website vg.no Michael O'Leary has been answering questions from readers about possible Ryanair domestic services in Norway.
All the questions and answers are in English (O'Leary still hasn't learned norwegian....)
I thought maybe some of the members here on a.net would be interested. The interview session is over, so we cannot ask any more questions, but there is a good range of questions and answers already (and O'Leary does have quite a good sense of humour).

Quite entertaining! I love the informality and fun of it* and the characterstically to-the-point nature of it.
* Such as him putting 'ha ha' and his reply - "My good looks, winning personnality and above all, my humility!!!" - to the question "Whate would you consider to be the biggest reason why you have become this successfull"

Another O'Leary PR masterpiece . I love all the digs at high-cost airports and airlines who are always on strike etc. Can't fault the bloke. As the woman on Panorama said last night, "If he was running the country, we'd be much better off"!!
According to one of my colleagues, my problem is that I'm addicted to travel!

There were quite a few funny responses, and he is clearly trying to tell the public to stop flying SAS, the high fared, unreliable (due to strikes and other issues) airline, and they are working with avinor to keep prices up.
There were also a few other answers to questions beyond the Norwegian domestic market, including some route ones.
One was, will Ryanair start flying to the United States, and he bluntly answered, "No, never"
Got to love, "Will you charge me to ask questions" "10 Euros haha"
