    Nice.
    If Ryanair aren't going to follow the rules then they should be whacked with a stick. And have punitive damages awarded against them...

    Yes, a fine of 20 million pounds would be insufficient.

    Hit 'em where it hurts (apologies to shareholders). The airline's management has long had a reputation for saying outrageous things (no doubt often just to get media attention).

    Do they have to pay for it or book online?

    You do realise that any fine will just flow through to higher fares for customers (most of whom do not fall into the super-rich bracket). So that actually has quite a regressive effect in this case.

    You could make the argument about all EU261 compensation payments and duty of care provision (accommodation etc).

    Also it will only flow through as much as the market will allow, if they could easily pass every cent on - they wouldn’t bother fighting it. Some routes Ryanair have are quite competitive and others quite price sensitive. More likely to flow through to higher fares on the fuller flights but not on “lead in” fares that are used (in sales etc) to get the flight to a certain load.

    Yes, indeed, and that is a very good argument against such types of regulation (there also being very good arguments for). Very few government actions come without costs.
