Ryanair Employees Hit by Credit Crunch (Not the Chocolate Variety)

Posted October 16, 2008 by BookingBuddy

Creditcrunch In these uncertain economic times, most people probably aren’t expecting much of a bonus this Christmas. And for up to 400 Ryanair employees, they’ll be getting the reverse of a bonus at the end of this year.

While Ryanair’s chief Michael O’Leary may be confident that his company will be one of only five other carriers that will survive the economic crisis, some of his workers may not be feeling so triumphant at the moment. O’Leary’s unfortunate troop of 400 pilots and cabin crew will be made to take a week of unpaid ‘holiday’ this year as Ryanair cuts back on services to and from Stansted. Don’t even mention the word ‘bonus’ to them, as they stand to lose about £1000 during this week off.

Perhaps Ryanair could try to cheer them up by giving them packets of Credit Crunch chocolates from Selfridges. The Valrhona chocolate-coated honeycomb pieces are being marketed by the fancy-pants retailer as an affordable luxury for these tough times. While Ryanair employees may not be able to afford blingy presents for their loved ones this Christmas, at least they can afford to stuff them with expensive chocolates.

Well it looks like Ryanair is unveiling new trans-Atlantic routes soon, so maybe that will revitalize the airline:
