Criticising Ryanair

Jan 6th, 2010 | By

This has almost become a national pastime and I have contributed to quite a bit of it myself when it is deserved which is more often than not.

But when the Office of Fair Trading (OFT) criticises them (which isn’t as often as they should), you would hope they got their facts correct. Just one fact wrong and Ryanair will attack which is precisely what has just happened.

It began when John Fingleton, the chief executive of the OFT criticised the airline for only allowing one type of credit card to be used for payment that didn’t attract any sort of Ryanair fee. (This card is actually a pre-paid card so is it technically a credit card?)
