Default UK-US flights for six quid!

Just read the following article on Ryanair's plan for global domination. I would sit for 8 hours with my knees in my face for six quid though....would you?

No, but I'd pay 12 quid and rip out the seat in front of me.

Yeah I probably would and then when I got to the UK and dropped dead from deep vein thrombosis everybody would know that I died as I had lived. A cheapskate bastard.

Not going to happen...it'll be 6 quid plus $300 tax.

All marketing bollocks for an idiot like O'Leary to create false expectation and fire up imagination on the birth of the open skies nonsense.

The market is still regulated and will continue to be until fundamental changes are made....

NFW!

It's bad enough sitting in a tube for eight hours with the pathetic amount of legroom that they now offer.

On second thoughts........I'll fly with my knees in my face for the $6 as opposed to flying with Air India

They really aren't bad. They are punctual, average seat room and the food is excellent...korma, curry etc on a plane...tasty! Many times I have flown on a 747-400 of theirs and had the central group of 5 seats to myself and slept the whole way, better than 1st class!
