Michael O’Leary became public enemy no.1 in a matter of 12 days. It all began with a few cancelled flights but there was no stopping there. He has single handedly ruined Christmas, by cancelling even more flights, affecting the lives of 750,000 people. When you look at the long face of Hayley and her friend Claire, over at Daily Mail, who were planning to spend an idyllic Christmas on the Canary Islands, you won’t be able to fight the avalanche of anger and hate. What’s next, Mr O’Leary?
What has happened was…
The first wave of cancellation was on September 15th. Ryanair announced that they have to cancel 50 flights per day over a period of six weeks, due to mismanagement of staff holidays. “We sincerely apologise,” said O’Leary, 12 days before cancelling 30 more routes. On the 27th of September, Ryanair pilots at 60 bases around Europe signed a letter that was sent to the management after O’Leary said that they’re “full of their own self importance.” Meanwhile, the company is need of hundreds of pilots to keep on growing.

This gesture was turned into a meme that involves rolls of toilet paper and other goodies. At this moment, Ryanair and Mr O’Leary cannot do good. But you can; with a bet at 1xBet Sportsbook!
