BBC - Inside the Low Cost Airlines

Documentary to be shown on BBC TV tomorrow on Ryanair and Easyjet although I'm sure some would argue that the BBC shouldn't spend money on what could effectively be a 1 hour advert for the LCCs.

Easyjet and Ryanair probably paid the production costs. Cheap programming for the Beeb!

Sounds interesting - I'll watch out for it. Hopefully, there'll be no presenters asking stupid questions which have already been answered, and they rely on the people doing the jobs telling us about them.

I wonder if Ryanair will specially substitute their usual desk staff, for staff that are helpful, good humoured and customer friendly!

Can it be any worse than that other waste of license payers money Airport Live.

It will be interesting to see how the program makers approach the whole subject of LCC.

Hi

I have never found Ryanair staff to be anything other than friendly and helpful, the same goes for Easyjet with just one exception in about a hundred flights. Treat them politely and that's what you get in return. Be rude, break the rules, think that somehow you are something special then they may not be as friendly.

The programme follows O'Leary to on a trip to Poland...I hope he printed his boarding pass beforehand AND for the return journey. Is it me or would Stelios get away with having a picture of Shrek in his passport?

Quite agree with you Jackie with both Ryanair and Easyjet, I have not encountered problems with staff, and even when problems have come up (last time with Ryanair) it was handled fine. Treat as you would like to be treated

I hope it will be more interesting than Airport Live which did not live up to the trailers imo. Maybe it's a comedy if MO'L is going to be his usual outrageous self.
