The French government want Ryanair’s 200 locally based staff to pay income tax and social security in France as opposed to Ireland. Fair enough you’d have thought eh?
Not for Mr O’Dreary it would seem. In a statement he whinged that he was “disappointed at the the decision by the French authorities to initiate proceedings”.
This pathetic response comes as no surprise. Ryanair have a history of throwing toys from their pram, walking away from bases and routes when the terms do not suit them.
However, more recently we have seen that the exit of Lyingair has given proper airlines the opportunity to come and fill the smelly void, offering decent routes to airports near where you were hoping to go and decent customer service with it.
Au revoir Ryanair.
