Now, I don’t fly Ryanair, I also have no intent to.

However, I think we who can afford / have companies that can afford, should be happy Ryanair and its like came around back when they did.

Because, without them, prices would have been at a totally different layer than it is today.

Obviously, there would perhaps also have been a competition between the classic flag carriers, but I trust it would have been nothing compared to what Ryanair and its like has been.

Just think about it, where I had to pay more than £600 for a domestic leg with SAS 10 years ago, I can today fly with Norwegian (Ryanair alike, may be not as bad) (and SAS…) for as little as £50.

So, we may like them or not, but as I see it, they have been a welcome corrective to a business that was growing greedy and abusing monopoly wherever they had the opportunity.
