Maastricht -here we come!!!

Been away in Maastricht for a few days, so there haven’t been any posts so now a flood of Maastricht posts…. well, a few anyway. Beginning with the inevitable rant about Ryanair . . .

I’ve never flown on Ryanair, but if there’s a positive comment on them, I’ve yet to see it. I reckon as long as people patronize them, they won’t change. In the US even the budget airlines, particularly Southwest, at least make the effort.

I think there’s a real market for an airline that would charge one inclusive price and say this is what it costs, and here’s what you get. You know, like the industry 15 years ago.

Looking forward to your posts on Maastricht.

We’re talking about a company that has considered:
1. Charging for the use of the toilets on board the planes
2. Dispensing with the co-pilot and training a steward(ess) to fly in the case of emergencies.
3. Placing seats outside on top of the wings at reduced price……

…actually, I made the last one up but I hope O’Leary hasn’t seen it as he’d probably like the idea . . .

I’ve heard about #1. My thought is I’d p… on the floor and to hell with them.

#2: Are you effing kidding me?!

I’d heard a rumor about an airline (European) that was thinking about flying SRO. Ryanair?

Any thoughts?
