Ryanair, Europe’s most famous low-fare carrier, is no stranger to controversy with their outspoken CEO Michael O’Leary. They stirred the pot again today with a tweet aimed at the United Kingdom’s government and it’s going viral.
If you’ve been following international news then you know that Boris Johnson, the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom, is under fire after it was revealed that they were flouting their own government’s rules by throwing a huge holiday party last Christmas at 10 Downing Street, his official residence.
Ryanair, who is suffering financially from the new strict Covid rules tweeted one of the funniest graphics ever created by an airline’s social media team. It says: The UK Covid Alert Level has been increased from Level 3 to Level 4. They created the graphic below:

I’m sure neither Boris nor his staff will think this is as funny as the rest of the world but if you know Ryanair, then you know they’re having their own celebrations right now.
Thank goodness someone in the travel industry is pushing back on all this arbitrariness! Hope it becomes a trend!
