Hi all,

I saw this photo on here today and found it interesting.

I thought it was quite good - your views on it would be great too.

Are there any plans for any more like this and anymore phrases?


Thanks

Quite clever. I flew on it on November 6th, so it must have been practically brand new then - When it turned up at BLK I was sure it was new!

Is it new? The livery is old style suggesting it's not brand new.

The aircraft isn't new... just the titles.

Another farce from Ryanair. BA is trying to protect its margins in the face of rising oil prices, and I find that fair (pardon the pun) enough - at least they're open enough to say what it costs and what its for. Ryanair, which doesn't publish fares, can just massage their what they charge each passenger upwards through controlled yield management, thereby not directly appearing to apply a surcharge but effectively extracting more money from their passengers.

Furthermore, O'Leary has said that the rising oil price COULD take $50 million off of Ryanair's profits this year, because the airline hasn't hedged its fuel - but I bet it won't (see above). Any other CEO that messed up to that extent and cost his company $50m would be fired... Now there's a thought!

Hello everybody,

I am new to this forum and this is my first post.
I am very happy to start in this forum about Mr O'Leary, a joke of a CEO - should I say a low-cost CEO - who runs a joke of an airline !
He has always been the first to paint ridiculous slogans on his - not really as they are leased -aircrafts, while he has himself been subsidized for some years by Belgium's Charleroi Airport. When it comes to being arrogant and rude - watch his language - he really has no limits. It is really regrettable that such a brilliant concept as the "no frills airline", which opened air travel to so many additional people as did the 747 introduction back in the seventies, is being continuously disgraced by Mr O'Leary's behaviour and practices.

Olympicbis,

WELCOME to A.net! Happy Postings.

I do not ever think that an airline would for fit a $50m just for making a few costomers happy - anyway - i think we need to get back onto the subject of Phrases as this could be deleted for not going along with the Topic name!  Smile
