Ryanair proven useless at concealing add-ons with the launch of their charity calendar

Ryanair, the World’s most hated airline, are famed for their hidden extras that add plenty of fat to your total fare. However, we can reveal that the sneaky scam artists have been working hard at keeping the fat off when it comes to their 2012 Ryanair calendar.

That’s right, just as a Ryanair fare of £2.99 from somewhere in the middle of nowhere to another place somewhere in the middle of nowhere can often seem too good to be true, the same can be said of the pictures of their cabin crew on their calendar.

We asked a photographic expert to examine the pictures and tell us how many hidden extras photoshop had concealed.

What became clear very quickly was the level of skill used in manipulating the images. On a scale of 1 to 10, where 10 is “expert” and 1 is “blind as a bat”, we’d score Ryanair’s efforts in the range of a vision impared chiroptera.

Did you know that bats represent about twenty percent of all classified mammal species worldwide, with about 1,240 bat species divided into two suborders: the less specialized and largely fruit-eating megachiroptera, or flying foxes, and the more highly specialized and echolocating microchiroptera? Interesting.

Back to business. Check out these two screen grabs to see what we mean…

Great skills there O’Leary. Did you do these yourself? Come on, admit it.
