Pressing the Call Button

Our favourite source of quotes has been at it again. Michael O'Leary, the wonderfully direct head of Ryanair, launched the carrier's first flight on which mobile phone use is permitted this week. He did so with his customary elan and willingness to get to the heart of the matter. Dressed for the occasion as an enormous mobile phone (how many captains of industry would be similarly game?) he noted:

"Anyone who thinks Ryanair flights are some sort of sanctuary where you can contemplate your navel is wrong."

Not that many travellers on their service will have left with the impression that they had been on some sort of retreat, we suspect, but full marks to the lad for not taking things too seriously.
