Re: Is this the end for Ryanair?

I vowed never to fly RyanAir many years ago and thankfully I've managed to stick to it.

The way they treat both customers and staff is appalling. There used to be a site on the internet some years ago that was basically a RyanAir employee whinge site. Some of the posts there were real eye-openers:

- Staff having to buy their own uniforms

- Staff forced to do work-related activities outside of formal on-work time resulting in effective pay-rates less than minimum wage

- Staff banned from using on-plane coffee/tea-making facilities even when there was no time during turn-arounds to leave the plane and get something in the airport

- Applicants for pilots' jobs being asked to pay 100 just to have their CV considered

- Pressure to cut corners on safety issues in order to meet time pressures

... the list goes on.

I personally won't be unhappy to see them go west - but of course it'll be challenging for the staff in the short term.
