Mr Michael Cawley, Chief Operating Officer & Deputy Chief Executive of Ryanair, complained that an article which compared prices between traditional and no-frills airlines was inaccurate and misleading.


The complaint was resolved when the newspaper published the following clarification:

In a report The heavyweight price fight (Travel, June 17) comparing prices between traditional and no-frills airlines, we stated that the cheapest offering for a weekend break from Ryanair on certain dates was £194. We described this as the cheapest deal on the day in question. Ryanair had a cheaper return fare of £155, which was excluded because the return flight left Dublin at 8am on Sunday morning which we did not consider would provide a normal weekend break. This was the cheapest deal on the day in question and we are happy to clarify our position.
