If you go to their homepage, you’ll see this picture of Winston Churchill promoting their new low fares. I’m going to just take a wild guess that he didn’t give his permission from beyond the grave for this one.
Oh but wait, there’s more. Click on the link that says New Airport Security Restrictions – Put fun back into flying. Um, but before you click, make sure you don’t mind nudity. Seriously. They do love to joke around.
Clearly, if Ryanair had lost a plane or one single person had died, they would never have done this. Actually, if anyone had lost their lives on any airline, I can’t imagine they’d do this. At least, I hope they wouldn’t do something like this. But since the plot was foiled, I think it’s pretty funny.
People are very tense when flying these days, and anything that can be done to loosen things up is probably welcome. I think Ryanair is like a smart little kid that knows just how far he can push his mother without crossing the line. They always make news, they do a good job of mildly offending and creating controversy, but they still fill their planes.
So . . . funny or offensive? (Or both, I suppose.) What do you think?
