If it takes that to run a successful airline, so be it!

I did mention how hard it is to run a successful airline. One example is Ryanair with its obnoxious, foul-mouthed CEO, Micheal O-Leary. He runs a very successful budget airline so much so that Airasia is probably modeled after Ryanair. Tony probably wanted people to believe its Virgin Airlines but I believe it resembles Ryanair more.

I noticed on the web, Tony Fernandez gets quite a bit of slack from the forummers, but he really can't beat Micheal O-Leary. Here are some of his controversial quotes.

  1. If someone wanted to pay £5 to go to the toilet I would carry them myself. I would wipe their bums for a fiver;
  2. At the moment the ice is free, but if we could find a way of targeting a price on it, we would;
  3. The best thing we can do with environmentalists is shoot them.These headbangers want to make air travel the preserve of the rich. They are Luddites marching us back to the 18th century;
  4. In economy no frills; in business class it'll all be free - including the blowjobs;
  5. The Boeing and Airbus duopoly is ending. (Talking about the emergence of another competitor in Comac from China.);
  6. We don't fall all over ourselves if they... say my granny fell ill. What part of no refund don't you understand?You are not getting a refund so f**k off;
  7. Its absolutely bizarre that the people who can't tell us what the f***** weather is next Tuesday can predict with absolute precision what the f***** global temperatures will be in 100 years' time. Its horses***;
  8. Why does every plane have two pilots? Really, you only need one pilot. Let's take out the second pilot. Let the bloody computer fly it;
  9. On travel agents - Take the f**kers out and shoot them;
  10. On being a father - I'm taking the Ryanair approach - subcontracting everything
