have a look here before jusging anything.

It was a very poor attempt at dramatising what is, a company with a 100% safety record, and has higher customer satisfaction that BA, Lufthansa, Air France, and almost every big operator.

Ive flew Ryanair a lot, and Im still here, cant be too dangerous.

Some of the points are pathetic at best and unfounded at worst.

It started by commenting on the fact that air staff have to pay for training, this immediately gets people thinking 'bad company' then it moves on to security issues, and because you have all ready made you mind up that ryanair is a 'bad company' people are more willing to believe the tripe that they mentioned.

ps, I am in no way connected to ryanair, just sick of the same crap tv programs!

I'm with the American on this one. I'd put with most things for a dirt cheap flight. Although why would the pilot be screwing an animal in the cockpit? Surely it would be in the storage section of the plane? Or is that the poor training of the staff showing?

Just had a look at the airline site.
To be honest, I wouldn't exacly believe what the airline says - they are hardly going to admit any shortfallings, however you wouldn't exacly believe every detail of the broadcast either.
Documentries need to be dramatic in this type of investigation, therefore some things could be taken out of context for this effect.
So, yes ryanair hasn't had a fatal crash so far (this day in age it shouldn't with a modern fleet and short haul flights).
As for customer satisfaction - have you tried to complain? fax number only.
But for what you pay it's a great service, for less than £20 you can fly 300+ miles (try doing that in a taxi).

I remember when i was at uni, there were aero engineering guys that couldn't change a tyre on a car let along certify an aircraft fit for flight. Now thats scary , I did ask them to mark any aircraft that they worked on so i didn't have to get on it

That's why mechanical engineers build and test airplanes. Once you figure out what the aero guys are saying that is.

I missed the documentary thing - l hope it gets repeated - what channel was it on? Im thinking Dispatches on CH 4?

Yeah it was on C4, it's been repeated on More4 (digital channel), so i wouldn't be supprised is they show it again as it seems to be filled with repeats.
