By Anthony Page – Ryanair, the ‘no-frills whatsoever’ airline has seen it’s profits fall by 24% this quarter and is blaming the ash cloud that ground European airspace to a halt.
The airline has not blamed any of its current or alleged predicted policies such as charging for luggage, charging for checking in, charging to use the toilet, making people stand up or the predicted fat tax on larger passengers.
It is thought that the airline had 10,000 flights grounded because of the cloud and they always protested that too many precautions were being taken.
Is this really a good news story? Well if you have ever flown Ryanair then it probably qualifies as one and proves that every cloud indeed does have a silver lining.
