Michael O'Leary has been calling for the rules to be relaxed throughout this pandemic - he doesn't give a toss about peoples health and is only interested in one thing - money.

He'll say anything to get his planes back in the air.

Totally accurate-no interest in people's health, only in ripping off their clientele. Next initiative will no doubt be to charge people to use WC on board. Why do BBC give O'Leary so much free 'air time' to spout Ryanair's corporate clap trap? They treat customers and staff appallingly. I never use Scum Air and never will whilst O'Leary runs the company according to his 'Hate the customer' model

He knows the country is full to brim with idiots that have been indoctrinated into the holiday abroad fad. All to feed greed like his and others selling the nonsense behaviour. Victims end up with nothing to show for what they waste one of them biggest spends each year on. They also lose their valuable free time.

Yes, O'Leary is speaking out of self interest on rules over restrictions. He is not alone, Tim Martin for example didn't want pubs to be closed.
That said, from the early days of the pandemic O'Leary had been calling for Covid testing at UK airports, in line with most other countries. Again this was primarily to benefit the airline business, but would also have saved lives.

Definitely money orientated and also tells lies. Not everybody who requested a refund has been paid. Probably using it to help in the purchase of the Boeing 737Max death traps.

O'leary has his eye of profit and got straight in with Boeing for advanced orders for 737 max 8 being delivered asap to replace his older aeroplanes.
A coupled of these falling out of the sky will kill both Boeing (sadly) and O'leary/Ryanair ( job done!!)

What Mr O'Leary may well be forgetting is that it's not just down to the high-risk groups in the UK being vaccinated.

It is also likely to require the high-risk groups in holiday destination countries to have been vaccinated - and that isn't going too well so far.

Totally agree! He spreads fake news about the safety of travelling in the summer, when the vaccination process has a long way to go yet. He wants people to book flights with no intention of giving them refunds! A greedy capitalist with no concern for people’s health.

The vaccination will help people to fight the virus. It will not stop people from being infected or passing it on. The only way to get rid of it is to wait until Everyone in an area has been injected. They should then be allowed to travel within that area. Going outside the area exposes people to the risk of catching it again and passing it on. Patience is required by all concerned.

I think most will feel 'on holiday' when we get back to some form of normalisation later this year. Even if Continental Europe is ready, which I very much doubt, it will not be worth the hassle...there will still be many restrictions in place, so I'll happily swap Barcelona for Bognor

The vaccination will help people to fight the virus. It will not stop people from being infected or passing it on. The only way to get rid of it is to wait until Everyone in an area has been injected. They should then be allowed to travel within that area.

Michael O'Leary has been calling for the rules to be relaxed throughout this pandemic - he doesn't give a toss about peoples health and is only interested in one thing - money.

He'll say anything to get his planes back in the air.

He knows the country is full to brim with idiots that have been indoctrinated into the holiday abroad fad. All to feed greed like his and others selling the nonsense behaviour. Victims end up with nothing to show for what they waste one of them biggest spends each year on. They also lose their valuable free time.

And while we're at the "nothing to show for it", let's abolish schools, theaters and cinemas.

Holiday abroad fad, what world do you live in. Until this pandemic you could ask a 100 people what they look forward to the most each year, 99 of them will say holiday, primarily abroad. No doubt the other is you.
Your right, he is a chancer but don't knock the hard-working general public from wanting a break abroad.

I would love to go on holiday this year, as I’m sure a lot of people would. I had mine cancelled last year and we could all do with a break. However, I think before we come out with statements like this we should see how our vaccinations go here first, as well as vaccinations in Europe and beyond.

The beginning of last year, I was looking at going to Italy for a break, however I made the decision not to make any bookings when cases started to be reported there.

I would not plan to make any trips this year either, and certainly would not part with my money until things are much clearer.

Totally flawed thinking. UK population vaccinated. EU27 playing catch up, with EU residents still vulnerable.

UK tourists can still be carriers of Covid19 and spread it to the unvaccinated people in EU.

So all need to be vaccinated and be immune!

Michael, sensible people like you and me know that restrictions should be dropped very quickly once we get a large drop in hospitalisations, because vaccinations mean they won't bounce back.

Unfortunately, the "leaders" in many countries are sadly lacking in intelligence, integrity and courage. So, I wouldn't bet your company on UK or other governments acting rationally.

Of course they dress their 'concern' up as being worried about 'killing granny', but they're fooling literally nobody.

Same for all vaccines, not just COVID.
