RYANAIR – A DANGER TO THE TRAVELLING PUBLIC? A potentially toxic relationship exists between the Irish Aviation Authority and Ryanair. The IAA is the ONLY regulator in Europe that’s funded by the airlines it regulates – it made a profit of 40million last year and it gets a lot of money from Ryanair. This has serious implications for health and safety. Ryanair pushes it pilots to limits that would not be accepted, or legal, elsewhere in Europe. This stinks to high heaven.
