This blog started with the question “why are budget airlines so successfull”. Very interesting question but obviously one of the answers is not honesty, integrity and professionalism – otherwise Ryan Air would not be in the position they are. It seems that the only thing people look at is the ticket price ticket price ticket price. So Ryan Air can advertise £1 fares, but the reality is that pax are treated worse than animals going to the slaughter house and the end price, in terms of time, lugage costs, inflight food/entertainement and airport accessability is quite often a lot more.

Easy Jet on the other hand has a much better name and even though Stelios has now stepped down or is stepping down at least i dont have to check the sky to see if it is light when he says it is still day time.

Hence why Ryan Air is off the radar as far as my firms busienss travel is concnered.
