Driverless planes. I have seen the future (again)

I was listening to a debate about this on LBC on the way home from work this morning.
A Ryanair pilot called in and spilled the beans about how awful they are to work for and said the pilots are very angry indeed with how the company is run.
He claimed that Ryanair almost always employ newly qualified and inexperienced pilots, who have to pay Ryanair 300 euros just for the privilege of having an interview.
If they are selected for a job they have to pay Ryanair almost 30,000 euros upfront to have training in their planes.
They then work on a zero hours contract basis, until they gain a few years experience and then start trying to find jobs with other airlines.
After hearing him speak, I doubt I will ever fly with Ryanair again.
Being transported across the skies by an angry young man with little experience is not my idea of safe travel.
Their cabin crews are usually pleasant enough to deal with on an operational level, but have had run ins with one or two of the skippers who think that they have a right to ignore security protocols simply because they drive the thing and are running late :-X

Buy me a lifetime free pass for Ryanair, and I would say thankyou very much as I shred it...

I should add that my last statement has been my view since I first encountered Ryanair in the late '90s. I have never flown with them and would actively discourage anyone from doing so.

Ryanair are doing what they always do. Get a heap of primetime free advertising. And will continue to.

Nothing new going on hear, move along now.

They do say theres no such thing as bad publicity. Time will tell if it works out that way, this time, for Fly&dare.
