Ultimate Irony

BA leases Ryanair Planes and Crew

Tony Ryan must be spinning in his grave – FR is leasing 4 planes and crew to BA on short haul European routes to cover the short fall of capacity as a result of the Flight Attendants strike against the UK former national carrier.

To compound matters Michael O'Leary - freely acknowledging that "he was not always entirely supporting of what Willie Walsh is doing" and clearly haven't always been on the same side calling BA a "big pension deficit on wings" - MOL has called for an end to the strike.

If this isn’t irony – I don’t know what is.
