Ryanair to allow smoking

RYANAIR, the airline that seemingly loves to aggravate passengers, is now to allow smoking on board.  In what is clearly yet another revenue generating move the airline's new Similar Smokeless Cigarettes will be available to passengers over 18 years of age and are sold in packs of ten on board Ryanair flights for just £6.  Similar Smokeless Cigarettes contain no toxins or chemicals and are claimed to be harmless to the user and to those around them.  In a recent survey, a tiny proportion (24,000 v a claimed 60m) of Ryanair passengers said they would like to smoke during flights.  How the complaints are dealt with remains to be seen.  In March 2004 eight passengers were banned for life by Ryanair for smoking on flights. www.ryanair.com
