Ryanair's cure for swine flu - take a strepsil
Published: 29/04/2009 - Filed under: News »
Ryanair’s CEO Michael O’Leary says that a potential swine flu pandemic will not affect short-haul flights around Europe this summer, and advises “a couple of strepsils” should be enough to combat the virus.
The outspoken O’Leary made the comments at a press conference this morning (April 28), adding that swine flu was “a tragedy only for people living... in slums in Asia or Mexico”.
O’Leary is also quoted as saying that the “a couple of strepsils” should be sufficient to cure the two Scottish travellers who have recently been diagnosed with swine flu. The newly-wed couple recently returned from a honeymoon in Cancun, where it is believed they contrated the virus.
