    I discovered it was all Velcro fastened, with elasticated trousers – for easy to rip-off-ness.

    That must have been quite a shock for you, more so than having a ringtone built around your crazy noises.
    The fourth was Georgia, one of the researchers, who bravely ‘volunteered’ at the last minute when another girl pulled out (think ‘volunteered’ in the sense that when asked to step forward, everyone else took a step back leaving her out in front).

    Well done Georgia.

    Money Saving Hassle if you ask me and other Ryan Air customers

    I don't suppose the little display was to take Ryan Air's customers minds off their refunds.

    We are still waiting depsite being told 28 days, (now 35 days) and now possibly 8 weeks plus some bull-sh@t about waiting 7 days for the bank to process our payment.

    Cheap Flights, No customer Service and arrogant staff.
    If I didn't have to fly with them I wouldn't bother.

    Careful! Don't confuse Irish carrier Ryanair with American carrier Ryan Air.

    When Ryanair works, it's fine - when it doesn't, it's horrible. But you generally get what you pay for.
  • Really enjoyed reading your blog this week Martin...... :)

    Planning lessons from Robert Carlyle :D?

    Ok, I appreciate that sometimes if people are to entertain the information you want to impart, you have to entertain them first.

    In a more serious note; flying all the way to Dublin to do a 20 minute interview with O'Leary, even at his expense. Ouch.

    Have you ever considered video-conferencing for this sort of thing? Even for London-based TV, if the sofa set up is not required a video set-up could get you on TV much more easily than a frantic dash across town.
