    At work, someone commented they went on a work trip via Ryanair a few months ago....my reply was something to the effect of, "I'd rather buy my own tix..." ;)

    Why would they fly with them? Would gladly buy alternatives instead getting for free on the "Ryanair act".......make that a "Riot act"!:D

    lol...

    My work books whatever is cheapest. Fortunately, I'm usually going places Ryanair does not fly to and have a little more choice as long as the fare is competitive.

    I'm glad that you have destinations on your list work re-lated and I trust leisure re-lated that brings you not in contact with such a renegade carrier who drives down only one thing, that's the standards of flying and the respect for aviation in the overall. Have flown Easyjet a few times however, a good experience, what I do not like however that we had nearly always a delay involved of some kind often only a few minutes but sometimes longer so that is has valuable time taken away from our day, plus the game to get that seat on the aircraft is a silly one in my opinion, pre-assign are best and should be a must.

    EZ is okay...a lot like Southwest. Normally, I go with BA, AF, or KL...they get me just about anywhere I need to go within Europe. :)

    Agreed, EZ is OK! Southwest, a lot heard about them, but never flown. BA is really good, all positive experiences, AF excellent especially CityJet IMHO, KLM is another story, especially there catering which can range from very good to disgusting on the same flight as happened earlier this year to us coming in from Incheon to AMS.

    Being based in Ireland, Aer Lingus plays a big role, like them a lot, yes, they have changed from being a full-service carrier to a middle of the road low-cost carrier, but they are reliable and fly point to point to nearly all major airports in Europe, so no problem here. Have not flown with them to the US.

    I have yet to fly Aer Lingus...KL has been fine, but I've only flown on short hops and one TATL. :)

    I can't understand why you always bite on this. Ryanair's 738 have 189 seats and that's the certified maximum. The thing with removing toilets to get more seats in is a no story, it's just a PR gimmick from MOL after the moto: All PR is good PR.
