Rynair is the best thing that ever happened aviation business in Europe. We need more Michael O' Learys. Easyjet is good.

a Barcelona-Paris flight ticket is 55EUR. as a french i'm accustomed to repeated, unexplained, unjustified delays in public transportations (trains, metro, RER, Paris airport luggage services ... )so i think Ryanair is cool !and, as Cuchulainn commented ryanair and the like have changed the face of commercial aviation ! this is what i (try to) explain in my unfinished phd final dissertation in industrial organization !

to be fair, easyjet doesn't have the 1£ flights, but they're all in the middle of the week anyway

Easyjet flies from mainstream airports.In the 80's it used to cost [800, 1600] guilders Dublin-Amsterdam return with Aer Lingus&KLM. You get the idea

Hiapologies for my bad behaviour yesterday night, I was pissed by the delay. FYI, I didn't take the flight since eventually the delay reached 4 hours. (don't even know if it departed at all)BTW, my complaints are about:1. lack of any kind of assistance ("yes, you will have your free beverages when ryanair send us the tickets FROM DUBLIN")2. unclear refund policy ("you get a refund if the flight is at least 2 hours late, but only if you stay here until the plane arrives")3. lack of transparency ("Ha, and maybe it won't arrive")And if you don't book the flight at least two months in advance, it might cost you 200GBP anyway. Shouldn't the price be capped?

Unclear policies regarding the rules are indeed a problem. The EU is trying to make this clear to state what passengers' rights are. here //I remember once in 1976 leaving Dublin on a 1 pm flight, I arrived in Milano next morning at 6.00 am
