Ryanair calls business class service “beds and blow jobs”
Jess McCabe // 27 June 2008
Ryanair is courting publicity again, after announcing at a German press conference that the name for its business class service will be “beds and blow jobs” and the blow jobs will be “free”.
According to the London Paper:
Michael O’Leary, the colourful head of Ryanair, told a stunned audience that while passengers in economy would pay as little as 10 euros to fly across the Atlantic, business customers would pay between 4,000 and 5,000 euros and get free oral sex.
This has partly become a news story, it seems, because Ryanair posted the footage on YouTube – I really hesitated before writing about this, because after all, the airline is just after some cheap publicity, and going on about how offensive they are just ramps that up for them.
True, true, but I just feel that this still needs mentioning – what about the women air stewards who end up working on this service? What working environment will this create for them? (Of course, they won’t actually be prostituted by their employer, we assume, that being illegal).
