RyanAir has been accused of "enslaving staff" and is to answer for these allegations in Norway. Other allegations made allege that RyanAir has created hundreds of shell companies in Ireland and the UK to avoid taxes across Europe.

There is a fear among the employees of RyanAir. The homes of pilots are being raided by Police who suspect them apparently of being tax dodgers.

Investigations into RyanAir are going on the Germany, Norway, and Italy at the moment.

Allegations are being made that it treats its staff like "slaves" having created hundreds of "shell" companies in Ireland and the UK to avoid tax across Europe and to force staff in to contracts that run roughshod over accepted norms.
Through hundreds of Limited Companies registered in Ireland, Ryanair have previously avoided direct employer taxes and social insurance payments.

In addition to large tax demands being served on individual pilots and cabin crew in Italy, German and Dutch officials have also raided the personal homes of pilots.

If a flight is late - by even one minute - the crew do not get paid.

Ryanair also employs a porn star named Edita Schindlerova:





Michael O'Leary enjoys popularizing the annual Ryanair calender:



It is quite clearly a total monster! :lol:

Surely there should be 12 girls in the calender? Maybe the other 5 missed their flight :)

Is there a link to that? I hardly imagine there is.

I would nail Ryanair to the cross for that very basic moral injustice, if it were proven.

My statement is true. A Ryanair steward told my wife.
Heard it down the pub!!!

FFS put your brain in at least first gear before you post.

There is enough atrocious true stuff about Ryanair out there that we can have a go at them over, without you posting any auld sh1te that comes into your head.

I don't know anyone who likes Ryanair but I don't know anyone who doesn't fly with them either.

Presumably the staff know what to expect when they apply to work for them and really the same thing applies to them as applies to all Ryanair customers. If they don't like the terms don't work/fly with them.

So does he keep their children hostage or what?

Is it so hard to get employment as a pilot?

Have these people never heard of changing jobs?

<edit> I like Ryanair, I just think of it as a bus with wings.

I've been Ryanair free for 16 months now - my life is happier. Apart from the unfortunate share he receives from the money I pay for my Aerlingus flights - O Leary will never see another cent of my cash.

Michael O'Leary personifies the worst excesses of capitalism: greedy, egotistical, obnoxious, indifferent to the feelings of others and completely culturally devoid.

To give him a tiny bit of credit, at least he lives here and pays his taxes, unlike the long list of f*kers who vanished off shore to Malta or wherever to avoid paying their dues.

I'd still enjoy watching him break a limb on a shiny surface.
