Ryanair’s porn plan is a smokescreen to hide price hikes

Whenever I see a stupid Ryanair story, I wonder what bit of financial news it’s drawing your attention away from. There’s a good example this week.

The real story, in the Irish Times: the average cost of a Ryanair flight increased by 13% over the last year, and it’s about to go up again.

At a press briefing in Dublin, deputy chief executive Michael Cawley said that to “stand still” next year, the airline would have to increase fares by €3 a passenger to cover the increase in its fuel costs.

The story most people will see, in The Sun:

RYANAIR is planning to screen PORN on its flights.
