    Default Good to see one Irish company flying high!

    Ryanair profits and revenues rise by 13% - RTÉ News

    Given there is so much interest in Ryanair on Politics.ie I thought readers would be pleased to know the company is doing so well. Nice to see an Irish company performing strongly.

    Watch this space for the newly emerging Irish owned company, Stripe which has gotten early investment from paypal and facebook investors.

    The irony! Is this the company that everybody criticises? The one by that foul person MoL? Can we not claim the honour of high flying for Aer Lingus instead?

    As does Michael O'Leary, no base in Malta or Switzerland for Michael.

    I have mixed feelings about MO'L, on the one hand i admire him however I would not like my kids to have to work for Ryanair.

    Ryanair is the jewel in the crown of Irish startups over the past 20 or so years.

    Any criticism of Ryanair from a custoer perspective is based on 'what people would like' as opposed to 'what they have paid for'. If people want 'silver service' then they should pay for that service and complain if they dont get it. But current complaints targeting Ryanair are akin to someone complaining they dont have A/C or Leather Upholstery in their new car when they didnt pay for it (and knew they weren't paying for it).

    In terms of wages and conditions - Ryanair has a reputation for 'lower pay and no unions' but there never seems to be a shortage of staff.
