Plenty of mutterings everywhere about the Ryanair "upgrade".
Alex Bainbridge has the best analysis so far.
But, for all the apparent problems, I bet the sale is still going well.
A side issue to the technology/performance story is the fact that ABTA and the Office of Fair Trading are still hopping mad about how the airline's drive to towards price transparency is still, er, less than transparent.
Simon Bunce, ABTA's head of legal services, doesn't mince his words here:
Ryanair has fobbed off the OFT for over a year with the excuse that they could not show clear, unambiguous prices on its website because they didn't have the technology.UPDATE: Ryanair is saying "technical" problems have led to further delays and the new pricing will come into play today...
Clearly, despite working on their website all weekend, they still don't have the technology. Either that or they just don't care about how they deal with their customers.
