Michael O’Leary has suggested that all of his Ryanair pilots book their holidays through easyJet because they are so much more reliable than his airline.
Ryanair is currently recovering from a disruption that cancelled up to 50 flights per day because of a rota “mess-up” that left it short of pilots.
“Listen, before you head off on the three days holiday that I give you each year, here’s a word to the wise,” explained O’Leary.
“Choose easyJet. Or Monarch. Or Vueling. Or, if you’re a strong swimmer, just head over the Channel. Basically, any option is better than us.
“And don’t forget to enjoy yourselves!”
