Ryanair contempt - is it any surprise?

Ryanair are in yet another spat about how they treat the world with contempt.

This all arises from a comment on a blog about a Ryanair online booking service bug. In inimitable Ryanair style a response was made to this blog post

response # 10

  1. Ryanair Staff #1 Says:

    you’re an idiot and a liar!! fact is!
    you’ve opened one session then another and requested a page meant for a different session, you are so stupid you dont even know how you did it! you dont get a free flight, there is no dynamic data to render which is prob why you got 0.00. what self respecting developer uses a crappy CMS such as word press anyway AND puts they’re mobile ph number online, i suppose even a prank call is better than nothing on a lonely sat evening!!

Not the best PR, supposing it was a ryanair staffer. The ip address confirmed it was a Ryanair response, so Ryanair came up with an even more disparaging response....

'...Ryanair can confirm that a Ryanair staff member did engage in a blog discussion. It is Ryanair policy not to waste time and energy in corresponding with idiot bloggers and Ryanair can confirm that it won’t be happening again. Lunatic bloggers can have the blog sphere all to themselves as our people are far too busy driving down the cost of air travel...'.

It hit the national press as another example of how Ryanair treats the world with contempt.

In my view, it is of no great surprise Ryanair treats people with contempt.

People who fly Ryanair deserve all the abuse Ryanair and anyone else can muster.

The world is made of those who pay their way and contribute to society and those who suck like leeches and Ryanair customers fit the latter profile comfortably.

What makes the arrogant, predominately British flying passenger, think they deserve anything other than contempt, when they actually bother to spend the time to find a flight which costs virtually nothing?

There are people around the world who are dying of starvation for the price of their bargain seat. I know of people who have paid more for their taxi fare to the airport, 20 miles away than a flight over hundreds of miles.

If I were O'Leary, I too would treat my passengers with contempt.

Sure, if Ryanair were dealing with normal people then this attitude would stink, but they aren't. Ryanair deal with the tight fisted arses of society. The 'I want it for nothing' mentality, so pervasive in British Society.

To people who would not fly Ryanair, for sure their responses stink, the replies are contemptuous and illiterate, but they are not seeking to appease these people. Ryanair is looking to attract the leeches of Society. The people who were at the last hours of the sales at Woolworths, picking up the final meaningless bargains.

The Ryanair customer is likely to be revelling in the recession, delighting in failed businesses in administration, picking up 'bargains', not in the least bothered by the families and lives destroyed by redundancy, loss of home and loss of self esteem.

The same people who turn up at property auction to grab a repossessed house, without a flicker of concern or conscience for the now homeless family.

Ryanair do certainly mess up if you are a human being who actually gives a damn, but for those who don't, money is and always will be king, Ryanair treating you with contempt is part of the deal.

Tomorrow will Ryanair ticket sales be reduced? I doubt it.

Will Ryanair give a damn that some people in the blogosphere are upset that Ryainair stance is that:

'...It is Ryanair policy not to waste time and energy in corresponding with idiot bloggers and Ryanair can confirm that it won’t be happening again. Lunatic bloggers can have the blog sphere all to themselves...'

of course not.

Do they really care that The Times and The Daily Telegraph are upset? Why would they, 'Upset from Royal Tunbridge Wells' is not their target market.

Ryanair treat their passengers with the contempt they deserve, the rest of us, they know will never fly with them and therefore on a business model, they don't give a damn.
