Kiss, Marry or Kill - Jet2, easyJet and Ryanair
We can't pretend this is an original idea - this is Bitterwallet, after all - so we're happy to doff our hats to the folks at travel blog Jaunted for the shameless theft inspiration.
Kiss, Marry or Kill is a timeless format trotted out at office lunches and suburban dinner parties, shortly before car keys are swilled around a fruit bowl. Instead of applying it to people you work with or see on television, we'll apply it to companies that you, the consumer, have had dealings with - for better or worse.
(Obviously when we say 'kiss', we mean 'shag' - but we're not allowed swears or rude words in the headline - kissing is strictly optional if you want to be all romantic and sensitive)
It's not about drawing up spreadsheets of prices and offers, but more about your overall experience and feelings concerning the companies in question. So let's begin with an easy one - budget airlines. So which would you shag, which would you marry and which would you kill - out of Ryanair, easyJet and Jet2?
For our money, Ryanair seems an obvious contender for giving the chop, but we suspect plenty of you are infatuated with their service because it's cheap and uncomplicated. They may not give a damn about passengers, but then they never pretend to. easyJet are probably our favourites; for our money the service tends to be friendlier, the experience is more comfortable and it's not necessarily much more expensive than Ryanair.
As for Jet2, their lack of transparency over taxes and ridiculous insistence on charging passengers for choosing a seat (instantly playing on the fears of families with children) means we have no love for them whatsoever.
So as disturbing as it sounds, Bitterwallet would probably shag Ryanair, marry easyJet and kill Jet2. What about you? Let's have your choices and reasoning, and not a lot of potty-mouthed sex talk, please.
