It's an ironic statement since so many European countries currently allow cabotage and Ryanair is one of the biggest benefactors of cabotage rights
Most likely not ironi - probably someone who thinks Europe is one nation - cabotage is common in Europe as far as passenger-transports as well as cargo is concerned.
