Word is that Lying Air were charging STG5 for a bottle of water on their flights yesterday - when people were forced to leave all bottles behind.

Mmm. It’s a word that’s been bandied about very readily towards my cut’n’paste of the fare LyinAir’s website quoted me.

@Raiha like RyanAir, or LyingAir as I call it. No service there at all. Just lots of extra charges over the “cheap” fare.

RT @SeatGuru: ‘Ryanair is now charging to use the toilet - it’s official!’ Another endearing quality. #lyinair #Buyinair

Easyjet and BA seem to be coming out of the volcanic ash ruck the best - not so good for Virgin and of course, LyingAir - sorry - Ryanair

Now we have it! Budget airlines are often more expensive than mainstream ones

There are a lot of Mail readers out there. Or at least a lot with similar prejudices. Lyingair is just one of the highly amusing, laugh out loud, roll in the aisles names their detractors give them. If you give the public what they want and are very successful, there will always be those who try to bring you down.

Lyanair hiking prices? Never! Once they get wind of an event or interest in a route they are at it like a rat up a drainpipe.
