Ryanair's boss has sparked controversy after boasting that a new Transatlantic spin-off airline will offer "beds and blow jobs" to business class customers.Quite the cut up.
Michael O'Leary, the colourful head of Ryanair, told a stunned audience that while passengers in economy would pay as little as 10 euros to fly across the Atlantic, business customers would pay between 4,000 and 5,000 euros and get free oral sex.
Responding to a question from a reporter during a press conference in Germany on Wednesday, O'Leary said: "In economy it will be very cheap fares, we say about 10 euros... and in business class it will be beds and blow jobs. In business, it will all be free including the blow jobs."
O'Leary, who has a fiery reputation, then poked fun at the Germans when he was told there was no word for "blow job", saying "Terrible sex life in Germany".H/T Ace.
An airline spokesman yesterday confirmed Mr O'Leary's comments.
He said: "We confirmed at the press conference that the proposed Transatlantic Service will have a very low-cost economy cabin with seats priced from €10 one way, and a very high quality business class, providing better service than BA or Virgin.
"The working title for the business class service is 'Beds and Blow jobs'."
If you think this is a parody, rest assured it's not.
Recall fondly Ryanair's Saucy Schoolgirl promotion.
Update: Here's the video. Definitely tongue-in-cheek.
