Oh come on guys! I refuse to believe that Ryanair pilots are any worse at landing the 738 than pilots from other airlines. What nonsense!

FR make all their money from ancillary sales, airport subsidies and avoiding paying employer's tax. Simple. Everyone knows this.

Domi. A lot of the older ac have been sold, but yep, many are getting long in the tooth. Many more tech issues than even a year or so ago.

The excessive taxi speed could be viewed as poor airmanship.

One cannot feel proud of FR but one can feel pride in one's own professionalism.
I'm sure that prostitutes think the same..... Ryanair is the definition of the 'unacceptable face of capitalism'.

Whilst mug punters are stupid enough to fly with Ryanair, Mikey-the-Pikey will laugh in their faces all the way to the bank. To my mind, people who fly with Ryanair fall into the same category as those who buy counterfeit goods at car boot sales and see nothing wrong with pirated software....

Get some sense of pride and personal integrity and avoid flying Ratner-air!

Whats the alternative?

Pay vastly over inflated prices to fly "National Carriers"
  1. where the Cabin Crew look down the their noses at anyone not in J Class....
  2. To fly Airframes 10-20yrs old (at least)
  3. To have delays due to pompous crews being on strike because someone is threatening to take away their draconian T&C's
Yeah right.....

I will stick with jumpin on the next FR bus service throughout Europe, where I at least get what I pay for

Strangely enough I regularly fly BA, as well as EZY, GWI, and have used UTA, TSO and others in Eastern Europe.
Not a single one of those criticisms was even remotely true, apart from the inevitable close encounter with AFL, who I would never ever fly again.

Generally speaking QOS actually meant something.
The price was actually LOWER than the equivalent Ryan con job, dragging you into some deserted airport 3hrs from any town.

Of course your mileage will vary.
It's a long time I for one abandoned the Ryan experience as being for the truly desperate, managed by the despicable, checked in by pit bulls, and security checked by sleep deprived ego trippers.

Now we hear it's for the suicidal as well?

Nota:-
I remember one recent flight when the PAX all started to get up and open luggage lockers, when the a/c was still taxiing to the terminal. An announcement STILL had no tangible result to make them sit down, so the PIC slammed on the anchors.

I watched as the 8-10 PAX were pitched down the aisle, on to some particularly fat woman.
LOL!
Lucky that made for a soft landing, but WHAT IF?

And on that happy, if rather old and tired note I think we shall euthanise this thread which has faithfully served us all by confirming our pre-existing prejudices (Yawn) whatever they may have been...
