Ryanair and the fall out of the sky 737max

Post by mysty »

It's being renamed I could not care how cheap Ryanair is I would not get on one of these planes even with a new name.
Would you even if you got told it's safe now.?
Her Bmw used to have a technical glitch and it would stop. 'Re start it and off it would go again.
That's dangerous on the ground but mid air your normally stuffed.

I was on plane when it lost an engine. The pilot reassuresd us that it was a four engine aircraft and capable of reaching safety on three engines. Then a second engine went followed by another confident reassurance. The third engine went at this time the reassurance wasn't so confident. The guy next to me piped up, " l hope the fourth one disnae go or we'll be up here a' night.
Gone to better place, which, quite frankly, could be anywhere.

I would not get on a Ryanair plane full stop.

Thankfully I can afford not to :D

I have no problem flying with Ryanair - they do what it says on their tin! They do it on nearly 2,000 flights per day and for nearly 150,000,000 passengers a year. Pretty slick operation.

I think grown adults are more trouble then kids on a Ryanir flight.

Especially if they are Scottish and it is the morning flight. :lol:

I was a holiday rep on the Costa Brava in the early 80's - I cannot attempt to describe what it was like meeting flights from Glasgow in the middle of the night. Character building.....

I worked in a holiday camp in Cornwall in the late 80's.

Thankfully, the Scottish could not afford to go on holiday there.

I guess that is why I still have teeth :lol:
