Madness or genius? Ryanair promotes video criticising Ryanair
As far as we're aware, Ryanair has never come out and openly admitted to treating passengers like dogshit. The passengers themselves accuse the airline of doing so all the time, but clearly it'd be financial suicide for Sky Marshall O'Leary to do the same. So what's all this about then?
After ramping up the month's column inches by jumping on the standing room bandwagon, Ryanair's website is running a poll to see whether passengers would pay less to stand rather than sit on flights. Below the link to the poll, there's a link that says Ryanair’s corporate song – I’m still standing:
Not sure what to expect, you click on the link and find a YouTube video made by the breakfast show at a Dublin radio station:
Now it's hardly the first parody to suggest Sky Marshall O'Leary doesn't give a damn about passengers, but why the hell is Ryanair linking to it? Doesn't that provide endorsement to what's been said? Is Ryanair laughing at it, or with it? Or are they well aware that standing room flights will never happen, and so are instead playing along with the gag and promoting a pointless poll that wastes everyone's time? We honestly don't know.
