    While fuel costs are a "growing" problem for many airlines, Ryanair reduces speed and customer satisfaction at the same time, well done.

    I remember airlines doing this a couple years ago. I do not believe this policy lasted very long.

    I can remember such headlines at the time, I wonder how it will work out for Ryanair. We shouldn't forget that this airline doesn't offer any connecting flights on one ticket, so it should be in theory more "easier" to pull off this stunt. Of course, this depends on the clientele of Ryanair, but seeing what they are prepared "to take" to fly this airline, I wouldn't be surprised when Mr. O'Leary has once again a "winning" formula to help himself / airline instead of his passengers, but this is nothing new, isn't it?
