What if... budget airlines delivered the post

30 October 2009

The strike by staff at Royal Mail may be proving nothing short of a pain in the arse to small businesses and people expecting beer money to arrive in a birthday card in time for the weekend, but it could be worse:

    If Ryanair delivered the post: Deliver basic letter next day before 9am - 0.25p If you want anything else you pay for it!!! Sack all Postmen!!

    very professional. You sit and judge other companies, then put this on your own website. Maybe you should judge yourself

    I'd like to see BW judge themselves, but in a Strictly Come Dancing line up. Maybe Paul (N) could be Brucey?

    The iPhone would get them there - you forgot to mention that.

    This is nice but a bit over the top. DavtT's one is a bit closer. Although it would more likely be delivery within a week for 25p. Royal mail's more recent changes - large letter etc... - seem to be along the lines of the Ryanair model anyway.

    I've got to be honest here. Am I the only one that wants to defend RyanAir? In my experience I've flown to places I could never have afforded before, they were always on time and they've never lost a bag. I'm off to Germany next week for £20 return. Amazing. At that price I don't even mind paying the £15 for a sandwich! I particularly enjoy reading this blog, but watch out you don't overstep the mark. A lighthearted poke at Sky Captain O'Leary is one thing, but the constant whingeing about RA is getting a tad boring!

    i never understood the hate for ryanair until i flew with them this weekend their baggage system is utter bullshit £20 for every kilo over weight in lugage. i saw someone who was charged £140. plus the costs of food and shit is stupid. £5 for a sandwich. fuck you. they are only good for short trips, not holidays. still i had a much better experience with them than easyjet. they really are dogshit and the worst of the worst. so in conclusion ryanair aren't great but they are the best of a bag of shit bunch.
