Michael O’Leary, Chief Executive of Ryanair after arriving in a hotel in Manchester went to the bar and asked for a pint of Guinness.

The barman said, "That will be £1 please, Mr. O’Leary."

Taken aback, O'Leary replied, "That's very cheap," and handed over his money.

"We do try to stay ahead of the competition", said the barman. "We have the cheapest beer in England".

"That is remarkable value", Michael comments.

"I see you don't have a glass, you'll need one of ours. That will be £3 please."

O'Leary scowled, but paid up. He took his drink and walked towards a seat.

"Ah, you want to sit down?" said the barman. "That'll be an extra £2. If you'd pre-booked it would have cost £1."

O'Leary swore to himself, but paid up.

"I see you've brought your laptop" added the barman. "That wasn't pre-booked either, that's another £3."

O'Leary was so incensed and his face was red with rage.
"I've had enough! I insist on speaking to a manager!"

"Here is his e-mail address, or if you wish, you can contact him between 9.00 am and 9.01am every morning, Monday to Tuesday. Calls are free, unless answered, then there is a charge of only £1 per second".

"I will never use this bar again".

"OK but do remember, we are the only hotel in England selling pints for £1."

Agree we all hate O'Leary and there is probably some truth in the joke  but our only experience  of the airline was good. My wife booked a flight home from  Spain to attend a wedding. It was cheap and efficient and most importantly  an error on her booking made us expect a stinging  fee to put it right when  it was actually put right foc. Dont believe everything in the Daily Mailwink

I don't hate  Mr O'leary, in fact I don't know who or what he is or does

And as such I won't trust people on here to tell me which newspapers to ignore, or trust.

A man is sat in an airport bar, having a drink, waiting for his flight to be called.  As he is sitting there an airline stewardess walks into the bar and sits on the bar-stool next to him. She's wearing a very smart uniform and the guy thinks she must work for one of the top airlines.

He decides to start a conversation by running some of their advertising slogans past her.

Thinking it might be British Airways he says, questioningly Do you fly with the world's favorite airline?

The woman looks at him quizzically, but says nothing and goes back to her drink.

Thinking it might be Singapore Airlines, he says A better way to fly?

Again she looks at him, but says nothing, and goes back to her drink.

He then says Where will tomorrow take you? Again no reply so he thinks well not Emirates

So he says to her As smooth as silk?

The woman turns to him, and says very aggressively "What the *&%$ do you want?"

To which he says "Ahhhhh....RyanAir!"

I'm not sure that's true at all? How can you say that?

Personally I'll use his company and services like any other, if the bottom line or price comes in significantly cheaper (and it's where I want to go) then I'll use it. Sometimes it is and sometimes not.
