21 O’Leary-isms*

The Belly Achers are … proud… well something like that, to bring the result of a late night conversation in far away place – and no, this isn’t about pillow talk – with one of the Belly Achers’ favourite drinking buddies, err, ummh, ahhh…. we mean ‘sources’.


Anyway, we’ll stop talking because somebody else is way more humourous when he opens his gob trap. Here’s some food for thought should Ryanair’s present CEO, Michael O’Leary were to
become IATA director general and CEO… oh what fun! 21 O’Leary-isms*

1 “If drink sales are falling off , we get the pilots to engineer a bit of turbulence. That usually spikes sales.”

2 On passengers who forget to print their boarding passes: “We think they should pay €60 for being so stupid.”

3 “Do we carry rich people on our fl ights? Yes, I fl ew on one this morning and I’m very rich.”

4 To a Ryanair employee who dared to join the Twitter Q&A: “Get back to work you slacker or you’re fi red.”

5 Opening a press conference to announce Ryanair’s annual results: “I’m here wiThHoward Millar and Michael Cawley, our two deputy chief executives. But they’re presently making love in the gentleman’s toilets, such is their excitement at today’s results.”

6 On why his bride arrived 35 minutes late for their wedding: “She’s coming here wiThAer Lingus.”

7 “You’re not getting a refund so f*** off . We don’t want to hear your sob stories. What part of ‘no refund’ don’t you understand?”
