A blind calypso musician and his band who were thrown off a Ryanair plane as suspected terrorists on New Year’s Eve …….

No, this isn’t some insane surreal farce! It’s the real and crazy everyday world of that awful Mc CryINair !

Yes … the Mc Donalds of Airlines never ever tire of being cnuts!

Now they seem to have an intense dislike for the blind!

They seem to have an intense dislike for the sighted also! All humans really!

Did they think the blind calypso boys had mutated their Steel Drums into explosive devices triggered by some sort of remote Braille detonator?

Although aetheist (thank dog!), I would like to believe that proper Karma will in due course be applied to Mc Ryanair CEO (as in “Cnut Extreme Onanist”!) Mick O’Leary and the army of crony clone cost-accountants who run that piece of shit company!

A blind calypso musician and his band who were thrown off a Ryanair plane as suspected terrorists on New Year’s Eve in 2006 were awarded £4,000 in damages yesterday.

Michael Toussaint and four members of the London-based Caribbean Steel International Orchestra were escorted off the plane at gunpoint in Sardinia by Italian police without warning or explanation and were not allowed back on, despite being cleared by the authorities within 20 minutes.

The band were offered a flight to Liverpool the following day.

Mc CryINair Ryanair sued by Sarkozy

https://i1.wp.com/www.smh.com.au/ffximage/2008/01/31/RyanairSarkozy_wideweb__470x462,0.jpg

Le Parisien newspaper published their photograph with a cartoon bubble coming out of Ms Bruni’s mouth saying, “With Ryanair, my whole family can come to my wedding”.

The Mc Donalds of Airlines just never give up being cnuts!

Ryanair’s wings clipped as Sarkozy, Bruni win damages

A French judge yesterday upheld the right of the French president Nicolas Sarkozy and his new bride, Carla Bruni, to control the use of their image. Judge Louis-Marie Raingeard ordered Ryanair to pay a symbolic €1 in damages to Mr Sarkozy and €60,000 to Ms Bruni.

The couple filed a lawsuit against Ryanair on January 28th, the day Le Parisien newspaper published their photograph with a cartoon bubble coming out of Ms Bruni’s mouth saying, “With Ryanair, my whole family can come to my wedding”. Ryanair said it accepted the decision and offered to pay a further €60,000 to a French charity chosen by Mr Sarkozy.

“Ryanair had already confirmed that this advert will not run again,” Peter Sherrard said on behalf of the company. He noted that the single advert generated “extraordinary worldwide publicity”. The airline did not know that Mr Sarkozy and Ms Bruni would marry on February 2nd, but their wedding had been expected since early January.

They filed separate lawsuits. Ms Bruni asked for €500,000 in damages; Mr Sarkozy for €1, a common practice when the plaintiff wants to make a moral point. When asked to explain the difference in the sums demanded, the Élysée spokesman David Martinon said: “For the president of the republic it’s a question of principle” whereas “for Carla Bruni, it is her profession, her image, so she suffers a financial loss”. Ms Bruni’s lawsuit cited damage to her career as a “model, author, composer and talented performer”.

Only once before has a French president sued for the use of his photograph. In 1970, Georges Pompidou won a case against L’Express magazine for publishing a photograph of him in an advert for motor boats.

Ryanair has frequently used the Taoiseach’s image in its advertising, particularly in relation to the building of a second terminal at Dublin Airport. One such advertisement depicted Bertie Ahern with a Pinocchio-style nose.

But a Government spokesman said any decision on the part of the Taoiseach to sue the airline as Mr Sarkozy had done would be a “private matter”.

Mc CRYinair Ryanair at it again

Ryanair ad banned for slating Lastminute.com

An advert for budget airline Ryanair has been banned by the UK’s advertising watchdog after it made misleading and unfair comparisons with online travel agent Lastminute.com. The advert broke rules on truthfulness and comparative advertising.

The ad appeared in the national press, headlined “Robbed by Lastminute.com?” It showed a picture of a burglar with “ONLINE AGENT” written on his top. Lastminute.com complained to the Advertising Standards Authority (ASA) that the ad was misleading and, together with the cartoon robber, “denigrated and discredited” its business.

Ryanair denied the claims. It argued that Lastminute.com was not authorised to sell its flights and that, in selling Ryanair flights, Lastminute.com was in clear breach of the conditions for use of Ryanair.com, which restricts use to “private non-commercial purposes”. Ryanair also accused Lastminute.com of inflating the prices without consent and without informing passengers.

The ASA said Ryanair failed to provide evidence to show that Lastminute.com overcharged customers and had therefore not substantiated the claim “Robbed by Lastminute.com?”

“We concluded that the claim in conjunction with the image of a robber misleadingly and unfairly discredited Lastminute’s business,” said the ruling, published today.

The ruling did not address Ryanair’s argument that its website conditions forbid non-private, commercial use of the site, perhaps deeming that a matter more suitable for resolution by a court.

Lastminute.com also complained that a statement in the ad that said “They overcharge by 100 per cent or more” was misleading. The ASA ruled in Lastminute.com’s favour.

Lastminute.com also said the advert’s claim “Don’t provide correct terms and conditions” was misleading because Lastminute.com incorporated all their suppliers’ terms and conditions into their own terms and conditions, which customers had to agree to before making a purchase.

Lastminute.com’s terms and conditions stated:

The contract for the product is between you and the supplier. In most cases this will mean that there are additional terms and conditions governing the contract as each supplier will have terms and conditions relating to that product. Please make sure that you have read these terms and conditions before completing your transaction with us.

The ASA wrote: “We considered that the reference to additional terms and conditions made it clear to customers that they should make further checks with the airline.” It concluded that the advert’s claim was misleading.

A CRYINair Mc Ryanair Fright !

This reminds me of every fright, sorry flight, I was forced to endure (i.e. when no REAL airlines were available) with the Mc Donalds of Airlines, the truly horrific and evil Ryanair!

Should be called CRYINair!

If you want to know what being in a shaking airborne pig coop feels like, fly Mc CRYINair! (they should use this as their marketing slogan!)

I’ve seen a scary undercover BBC documentary about how things really work there.

Amongst the key allegations of the documentary – with apparent ample evidence too! – included the inadequate training for cabin crew, the lack of safety checks, the lack of passport checking for boarders, the exhausting rotas for staff, the pushing of pilot flying hours to the very legal limit allowed, et fucking cetera! -.

Of course too, widely known is the notorious lack of customer service, the renowned tardiness, the crappy ancient planes, the cases of charges for the usage of wheelchairs, the eviction of blind passengers from a flight, the false advertising, the suing of the millionth customer when she claimed the advertised prize which was rightly due to her, et fucking cetera!

Worst of all though is the corporate philosophy of “fuck the customer”!

CRYINair, what a pack of cunts!
