The airline is called Alitalia, not Airitialia. This is (as usual) not a serious offer by Ryanair, just an (apparently successful) ploy to get more publicity.

They never said they would put in money

Speaking at a news conference in Rome, Ryanair's CEO Michael O'Leary said if his airline were asked to join Alitalia's cash call currently earmarked only for shareholders "we would evaluate" the possibility.
Can't be accused of saying No, Can't be accused of saying Yes.................

Nobody in their right mind would give an unlimited and unqualified answer......... well nobody that wasn't an Italian politician.

There is zero chance that Alitalia would agree to issue or sell shares direct to a FR controlled company and MOL knows it. Aer Lingus have already had plenty of trouble from FR as a shareholder.
I doubt even AF-KL would have wanted to sell their rights to FR

As Cyrano says, it's a pure publicity scheme in the same way as all the earlier talk about charging to use the toilet or having to stand for the duration of a flight for a cheaper fare.

If MOL really wants FR to present a more mature image, then it's sometimes best to know when to keep quiet.

But if he had not answered a Journos questions then he would be accused of being evasive and there was some fact in the matter.

Stating they would evaluate means exactly that...................no decision on anything just a pass.

Strange that Ryanair considers the back two rows 'premium seats'. They are usually considered the worst in the plane, but maybe some passengers will be so desparate to get off a Ryanair plane a few seconds earlier they will stump up an extra Ł10.

Some seats can be called premium seating and any seat can be called premium. Nothing strange at all. Smoked Irish Salmon isn't the same as Irish Smoked Salmon etc.

I am amazed there have not been far more claims against a lot of airlines.

If Ryanair want to be seen as a not-so-nasty airline, is it really necessary to sell a calendar of women in skimpy beachwear ? Makes for eye candy but it all seems a little bit grubby and seedy

Really!!! - grubby and seedy? Some people seem to use any excuse to have a go at FR. What exactly is wrong with photos of women in skimpy beachwear? Women in skimpy beachwear have been photographed since photography began. Women in skimpy beachwear will continue to be photographed into the foreseeable future. I haven't read any Spanish newspapers or magazines but would have little doubt that photos of women in skimpy beachwear feature therein.

Who even remotely cares what that Spanish woman judge thinks? She should be stood down and retrained to make non-PC judgments. Was she upset because there were no men in skimpy beachwear? If so, I might oblige her but she should be warned that it won't be a pretty sight.

Ayroplain, I agree with you. Note please that I dare to express that opinion even living here in Finland, the country with even more egalitarian feminist-centered approach.

But now the news from Slovakia:
Irish low-cost carrier Ryanair could open one of its regional centres at Bratislava’s M.R. Štefánik Airport (BTS) next year, Ryanair General Director Michael O’Leary said Tuesday during a meeting with Slovak Ambassador to Ireland Dušan Matulay in Dublin. “The base could be built next September at the earliest... when the company should have new planes,” the Foreign and European Affairs Ministry told TASR newswire. The new base should bring a larger volume of flights and passengers as well as new destinations. Matulay was, according to the ministry, also interested if Ryanair plans to fly to other Slovak cities such as Košice and Poprad in connection with the Slovak presidency of the EU Council in the second half of 2016, which will be associated with more traffic throughout Slovakia.
