Interesting. I use Ryanair a LOT – it’s the only way for me to get from my local airport to Dublin (where my beloved is) and I have very few problems with them – the occasional delay and the stupid extension of the terminal at Dublin that takes about an hour to walk to, excepted 🙂 The price is ideal – I’m paying £20 including taxes for a return trip next weekend.

For a certain length journey they provide an ideal service but I shudder to think what it would be like trapped in there for more than hour!

I can’t see the company operating a two-tier service either – how long before those minimum wage, Latvian cabin crew are looking to be moved to the better paid Aer Lingus positions? Does Ryanair become a training ground for the “better” airline?
