Ryanair Plumbs New Depths

leave a comment »

I see that the deeply unpleasant and sleazy Michael O’Leary is refusing to comply with the EU law that requires him to provide his passengers with accommodation and food when they’re delayed.

I’ve never travelled in one of his cattle trucks but based on my one and only experience of Easyjet, which is supposed to be about the same, then I’d rather walk or stay at home.

Not Fit For Purpose

In normal circumstances I’d be supporting anyone who wanted to defy the EU but in O’Leary’s case I’ll make an exception.

Obnoxious, ignorant, self-important, oafish – no, they don’t quite sum him up.  I tell you what, blatant and clear intent to defy the law that governs his business makes him unfit to hold an operator’s licence.

He should be banned from running an airline.

Foolish Staff Unite To Destroy BA

with one comment

The BA cabin crew strike over Christmas is a huge mistake by the staff and the union.  It’s a disaster for the company.

Crashing

The union “Unite” is just about all that’s left of the entire trade union movement anyway.  There’s not much else left that has any power. It looks like some latter day Scargill is behind this idiotic strike.  If Unite hoped to gain some public sympathy by destroying a million passengers’ Christmas plans then it has made a grave miscalculation.

As for the staff, we no longer have any remaining affection for this strange group of people.  Once, of course, they were central to the glamour of air travel.  Now, the fact that nearly all the men are homosexual has gone beyond a joke and become oppressive.  The girls are no longer sweet and delightful. Now they are like severe school mistresses, more concerned with monitoring your alcohol consumption than being appropriately deferential and making you feel special.

It’s not BA’s fault that all the glamour has gone and that air travel is now an ordeal rather than a pleasure.  That is down to Easyjet and the appalling Ryanair and vulgar Michael O’Leary.

This is dreadful news for all concerned but the public will punish BA severely.  Any loyalty or talk of “favourite” is all gone now.  There will be long term, severe and well-deserved consequences for the staff.
