The guy is a total prat. If you saw the recent Channel 4 documentary “The Plane Crash” you will have been convinced of the need to be sat in a seat and strapped in. O’Leary is assuming that all crashes are terminal for all passengers. His pilots seem to be under orders to “land hard and make the plane stick” so that they don’t go round again and waste fuel. I have flown Ryanair several times but after experiencing several questionable landings I have vowed “never again”. Call me chicken but O’Leary is dangerous to your health.

You can always count on Ryanair for controversy.
Ryanair’s outspoken cost-cutting CEO, Michael O’Leary, once vowed that his airline would charge for toilets. Ten years ago, the airline famously refused to offer wheelchairs to disabled passengers. This year they introduced seats that don’t recline. Plus the airline now charges you a whopping 60 Euros to print a boarding pass.
But their new scheme tops them all. O’Leary wants Ryanair’s passengers to stand on their short-haul European flights. Not ‘stand up for their rights’…he really does mean ‘stand up’.
In an interview with the Telegraph newspaper, O’Leary said, “Seatbelts don’t matter…if there ever was a crash on an aircraft, God forbid, a seatbelt won’t save you.”
