Ryanair fly below line of good taste


THAT august organ, the Financial Times, took Ryanair to task this week for the Irish airline's latest advertising wheeze.

After the hijacking of the Sudan Airways jet ended peacefully in Stansted, Ryanair ran advertisements carrying a picture of the hijacked jet with the caption "It's amazing what lengths people will go to, to fly cheaper than Ryanair.

The Margin suspects that the advertising standards people in Britain might also have some observations.

The FT also had a nice line about the Texas gunslinger confronted by Saddam Hussein, a lawyer and a rattlesnake with only two bullets left in his gun. He decides to shoot the lawyer. . . twice.
