The Sun: Ryanair 'putting passengers' lives at risk', say pilots I'd take much of what The Sun has to say with a grain of salt...I'm sure it's partly to gain readers' attention. Does anyone know if there's even a bit of truth to this? I guess I've always thought that it was up to pilots whether or not it was safe to fly (maintenance, fuel, staffing, etc.) their aircraft... If true, I'd hope that concerned pilots would put the safety of passengers first. Thankfully, I'm able to stay away from flying FR!
