a decent amount of my work is in Maintenance & Reliability.

It is very difficult to me to understand, at those prices, how they can maintain their equipment.

However, nearly everyone i know who has flown them, always pays extra for *something*
a seat assignment, a bag, early boarding something
and they are turning a profit, but I would like to see how much they spend on Preventive Maintenance, and my concern lies there - not in their employees or the comfort during flight

Wasn't there a bargain basement, hi value/low-price/low-rent airline a while back....ValueJet, I think......that crashed into the Florida everglades because something very important was supposedly secured by something like Scotchtape or chewing gum or whatnot rather than something heavy duty.

Folk really do like to have it both ways. Cheap but safe, round and square, a cat that barks ...... until it bites back.

RyanAir never intends to implement most of these bizarre ideas. It is only to get media coverage and their name out there as a "low cost airline". They get tons of free advertising. There is one of these breakthrough ideas about every six months.

I used to LOVE ValueJet.
Yes, they had one really bad accident - 20? years ago- where valves that should have been off were On.

After that accident they merged with AirTran, and dropped the name, and the public thinks it isn't the same company...and they have been incident free

Oxygen cannisters were on board in the luggage compartment. They are hazardous material, and it was a violation of regulations for them to be on the plane. It will never be known if they weren't properly processed because they were believed to be empty or if they were accidently placed on board because the boxes were marked company owned material (no indication of being hazardous material).

Ditto. The Irish I know call them "Lyin'Air". Personally, I have read/heard/watched enough investigative stories into their sharp practices that I will never give them one red cent/penny of my money. (And yes, I'd rather believe an investigative journalist's story on the BBC than one of Michael O'Leary's press releases.)

This is a company that is on record for treating its cabin crew appalingly. I cannot imagine them treating their maintenance staff any better. Only the very desperate-for-a-job would want to work there.
