“Free Blowjobs” On European Budget Airline, Says CEO; “Saucy”, Says TheAge.com.au

Posted by Clem Bastow on June 27, 2008

File this one in the “I hope I wake up tomorrow morning to find this has all been a terrible dream” category: the CEO of European budget carrier Ryanair, Michael O’Leary, has “joked” that in its new Business Class section, passengers can expect free oral sex.

O’Leary made the saucy remarks during a press conference in Germany about Ryanair’s Trans-Atlantic flights.

Explaining that Ryanair’s long-haul flights would feature a business class that went against Ryanair’s typical low-budget ethos, O’Leary remarked that “in economy it will be very cheap fares, say 10 Euros, and in business class it will be bed and blowjobs”.

This from the airline whose hostesses posed semi-clothed onboard its planes in last year’s Girls Of Ryanair calendar; presumably in McLeary’s fantasy world, said hostesses will be providing the freebies.

Meanwhile, “saucy” remarks? Is that the best you can come up with, Craig Platt of theage.com.au? Not “distasteful”, “sexist”, “hopelessly Carry On-esque” or “nauseating”?
