And still there's a huge difference. Those examples you're calling here are rip-offs of existing brands, Ryanair is not. They don't impose to be another airline. If they would, they'd be called Ryanhansa or British Ryanairways. That's not the case.
Not what I wanted to say with my analogy. I meant you do, as you say, get to your destination, but you miss all the pleasantries. Oh, I got a better one!!! Ryanair is like meeting a beautiful girl, admiring her, and then instead of romance, relationships, marriage and a few happy years, jumping right into a dirty divorce where she takes all your money and leave you with mortgage payments.
But both will get you to your destination
In all fairness, so will a bicycle. Or a pair of rollerskates. And it'll be a HUGE saving on CO2 emissions.
That is of course except for these canceled flights due to pilot shortage. A canceled flight can happen on any airline, but it should be dealt with respectful. That is currently the only thing you can blame Ryanair for.
Yes. After you blame them for greed, rudeness, not caring about their customers to a point where a CEO, no less, says it's time to stop "unnecessarily pissing people off"... mind you, UNNECESSARILY. I dread to think what a creature like O'Leary finds "necessary".
And, again, I don't mind LCCs as a class. Moreover, I'd happily pay less (or nothing) for things I don't need. Like a meal on an hour-long flight. Or "an airline magazine", for crying out loud! But I see GOOD examples of LCC, like the aforementioned Jetblue or pretty much any American LCC. WHY Europe went in the opposite direction, I don't know. Easyjet, Ryanair, and the like ALL "piss people off" to a point where a passenger wants all their planes to crash while actually being onboard one of them. I can't wait for a GOOD LCC to appear in Europe and bancrupt them all.
No friendship, love or respect unite people as much as shared hatred.
