Ryanair: decided against cheap Transatlantic flights after all
Remember Ryanair's plans to fly you to America for £10? Well, seems like this isn't going to be a thing at all, although they're probably happy with all that media coverage they got, thanks.
The airline issued a small statement saying that these flights aren't going to be offered at all: "In the light of recent press coverage, the Board of Ryanair Holdings Plc wishes to clarify that it has not considered or approved any transatlantic project and does not intend to do so. "
Of course, Ryanair and Michael O'Leary do have previous when it comes to talking a load of old cobblers, so this shouldn't surprise anyone. Remember when they said they were going to charge people to defecate on their planes? That didn't happen did it?
The only thing you can take seriously is the things that Ryanair actually do, rather than say they're going to do.
That said, £10 one-way flights to America with Ryanair would invariably end up costing you much more money in hidden charges, as they whack on costs for baggage, paper tickets, food and whatnot, meaning you'd end up spending more than you would if you flew with British Airways and be dropped-off 430 miles from where you actually want to be.
