UK Watchdog Makes Claims Against Ryannair

9th Jan 2002

The UK Advertising Standards Authority has upheld complaints about Ryanair’s offer of cheap tickets for “every seat on every flight” last year.
The watchdog upheld a complaint from a customer who found that the cheap tickets which were promoted in Ryanair`s e-mail and regional press advertisements were only sold for midweek flights.

“The authority considered that the advertisement was misleading and asked the advertisers to ensure future advertisements made clear in the main body that seats were available at the quoted prices for flights on Tuesdays to Thursdays only,” the watchdog said in its adjudication.

The newspaper advertisement, which featured a one-way flight to London Stansted for £19.99, and another to Paris for £29.99, had added in small print that the offer was limited for midweek flights.
