Don't know if its been mentioned, but the Ch4 investigative programe Dispatches, on the 12th is about Ryanair. May want to set your recorders.

I know MOL seems to subscribe to the view that "all publicity is good publicity", but I have a feeling that he won't be too keen on this.

I believe the focus includes pilots discussing safety issues amongst other things rather than the usual low cost carriers stories but I'll reserve judgement until after I've seen it in case it's another case of sensationalist TV journalism.

This is all about a view from the flight deck from disgruntled crew (and ex crew) and the flyer/airline forums have been rife with comment all week.

Nowt to do with baggage/standing up or penny for a pee. It is about important stuff.

Could be an interesting view....

Dispatches can indeed be sensationalist. However i will reserve judgement until I have seen it.

Difficult for me as i despise MOL despite understanding completely that most if not all he says is to generate publicity.

Just seen an item in one of the UK papers saying main thrust of the programme will be aircraft flying close to minimum safety requirements for fuel, majority of pilots being on zero hours contracts thus encouraging them to fly when unwell, having to pay for own uniforms and accommodation etc etc

Minimum fuel for any flight is heavily regulated.Ryanair policy is the same as all the other airlines I know.
