€10 returns flights to the US? Not yet, says Ryanair

8 February 2010

Three years ago, Sky Marshall O'Leary caused all manner of excitement amongst both the aviation industry and consumers - Ryanair would begin operating long-haul routes to the US for less than a tenner (not including taxes, credit card payments, baggage or online check-in fees) within three to four years. A new brand would be created to operate between Europe and six US cities, and as with its European services, passengers would pay for food and drinks consumed on-board, as well as in-flight entertainment.

For now, alas, the low-cost transatlantic dream is over. The Irish Examiner reports that O’Leary has put the plans on hold for several more years, because of a backlog in orders for long-haul aircraft. As you can imagine, the news has stunned the Bitterwallet team - for months we clung to the hope of coital relations that didn't cost us money:

    Who would want a blow job off Ryan Air staff? You just know there would be some fat spotty teenage Polish boy that would be giving them, while trying to sell you a lottery ticket.

    I would love a BJ off a spotty Polish kid, and that's not just because I'm a convicted paedophile.
