I don't think they are having a serious laugh at all, not at those margins.
Revenue per passenger was nearly 14 in the last financial year. Profit can be adjusted through investment decisions, depreciation, etc so 'making' 217m is potentially not the full picture. Besides, they still managed to give shareholders dividends of 166m - or around 2.80 per passenger...
