Lying Ryanair caught out again by advertising watchdog

Ryanair, the World’s most hated airline, were yesterday ordered to remove adverts they had published because they were ‘misleading’.

Ryanair allegedly made false claims about cheap flights and produced false images. The advert featured a bikini-clad woman holding a cocktail in the sunshine which stated, ‘book to the sun now’, with flights from as little as £8. However the destinations included in this deal had maximum temperatures of 11 degrees Celsius.

Another Ryanair advertisement offered flights to Dublin for £27.99, although it was apparently impossible to book a flight for this price, due to an additional £6 online check-in fee.

This is not the first time that Ryanair have been caught out as lying bast*rds. And it won’t be the last.

Our tip? Stay well clear of this shambolic excuse of an airline and avoid being ripped off and flown to an airport no where near where you wanted to go in the process.


Ryanair to add new £2 per passenger fee to cover cost of future scratchcard payouts

Ryanair, the World’s most hated airline, have been made to look like the bunch of idiots that they are this week with the news that 3 passengers on the SAME FLIGHT all won the top prize in the scratchcard competition.

Ryanair blamed the incident on a printing error! Ha ha.

Each of the lucky winners look set to receive a brand new car worth over £11,000.

We don’t think that any amount of scammy, rip-off fees and hidden charges on this particular flight will have covered the cost and we have heard rumours that Ryanair are looking to introduce a per passenger, per flight charge of around £2 to cover the cost of any future scratch card payouts.

Similar to the levy recently introduced to cover the cost of any potential future delays caused by a hypothetical natural disaster, this new charge is set to be just as well received by passengers already accustomed to being ripped off by Ryanair.


Another Ryanair passenger review

Ryanair, the World’s most hated airline, are renowned for being especially adept at ripping off their customers. This usually results in said customer boycotting the sad excuse of an airline the next time they travel.

We’ve been sent a link by a typically pissed off passenger to a review of her recent trip from Pisa to London with Ryanair. We think it sums up nicely the lengths that Ryanair will go to in order to extract as much cash from you as possible.

It’s a great read and we hope it helps demonstrate that flying with Ryanair is a false economy. What you think you are getting for £19 WILL actually cost you £100s more. Probably leaving you at an airport miles away from where you actually wanted to go to in the process.


Ryanair spend £2.75 on new website design

Ryanair, the World’s most hated airline, have launched a new website design that resembles a steaming pile of cat puke on the pavement.

In an effort to improve on their previous site which had been designed by a blind monkey on acid, Ryanair have quite clearly splashed the cash this time round.

We asked renowned web usability expert, Irene Von Stinkleman-Hurly, for her comments on the new offering: “Ryanair have set a new benchmark for crap design, crap usability, crap features and general crapness. They should be proud of this achievement“.

What do you think?

Someone claiming to be a representative of Ryanair, calling himself Stevo Whos-ya-father, commented “Here at Ryanair, we aim to provide the worst possible experience for you, our customer. If there is anything we can do to heap misery on your time with us, we’ll go the extra mile. Here’s hoping that our investment of £2.75 on this new website design gives you headaches, increases your blood pressure and perhaps fools you into booking a flight that you thought was going to cost £19.99 return but actually ends up costing £399 each way plus tax and to a destination miles from where you need to actually go.


Ryanair in yet another childish moan at realisation of truth

Ryanair, the World’s most hated airline, are whinging once again in the High Court over comments by the judge that Ryanair and the truth are “uncomfortable bedfellows”.

Funny how the truth hurts eh O’Leary?! You makes your bed, you lie in it!

In a motion before the judge today, Ryanair asked Mr Justice Kelly to discharge himself from determining a dispute involving the airline and a UK-based firm, Terravision London Finance Ltd, which provides bus services from airports where Ryanair operates.

Ryanair claims that the Terravision is in breach of a contract that the parties entered into. However Terravision has denied the airline’s claims and is opposing Ryanair’s motion.
