For once the European court gets it right and will force Ryanair to do what all other airlines did two years ago and compensate passengers who lost flights due to volcanic ash. And so I bring you the instant Twitter joke reaction, plus a few older RyanAir jokes for good measure and to go with your coffee (that will be €five please) an ater dinner snack (that will be €7) from Tesco

TRAVEL: Ryan Air introduce new £510 admin charge for any customer claiming £500 compensation for delays.

If oxygen masks came down in an emergency (they do have them right?) Ryanair would try & charge for the oxygen

‘I’ve just about had it with Ryanair. Now they want to charge me for my emotional baggage!’ #ryanair

BBC News – French-led troops ‘have control of Timbuktu airport’ http://bbc.in/14mLt3C – excellent. #ryanair’s new route to Avignon
And a few older jokes:
Michael O’Leary of Ryanair goes into a Dublin pub and asks for a pint of Guinness.
“That will be one Euro, please,” says the barman.
“That’s a very fair price,” replies O’Leary.
“Would you like a glass with that, sir?” asks the barman.
Why won’t Al Qaida ever bomb a Ryanair flight?
Because they want to go straight to paradise, not 30 miles away and take a taxi.
So the new ‘Apple maps’ has cities placed miles from where they should be.
Hardly new, Ryanair pilots have been using the app for years now.
I have empathy with Lindsay Sandiford.
I would smuggle 5kg of cocaine into Ireland before the bills from Ryanair for excess baggage stopped it being profitable.
And that Tesco tweet:
