Ryanair is not only famous for its wide variety of fees that may add up to more than the base fare, but also for its innovative ideas. And, of course, for its CEO Michael O'Leary, who considers his customers stupid as you can read here.

She continues by shouting: "You...

Political geography

More experiences of a travel agent in Washington, DC, with politicians among his customers:

1. A New Hampshire congresswoman, who wants to go to Cape Town, calls him. The agent tells her about the length of the flight and the passport information, but she interrupts him with: "Sorry, but Massachusetts is not that far and I do not need a passport." If he asks whether she wants to go to Cape Cod rather than Cape Town, she hangs up.

2. A Vermont Congressman calls to complain that he has...
