I must be the odd one out
Ryanair provide flights that are a fraction of the cost of other operators (OK about half the price) that go to where I want to be, rather than the capital city 90 minutes drive away. I take an iPod with acoustically isolated earphones so I can't hear the stupid announcements, generally sleep all the way, and have no desire to eat or drink on a flight that only lasts two hours. Chances I will make a phone call in-flight, less than a snowball's in a pizza oven.
I know it's fashionable to hate them, but when I look at fellow travelers they tend to be penny-squeezing MEPs, celebrity chefs, and the "chattering classes" heading for their second homes. Exactly the people who complain about Ryanair. In all the time that I have used them, the flight has never been late, my luggage always arrives at the same time as me. With national carriers I usually end up in a different country to my luggage on a third of flights, and the flights tend to be 30 minutes late departing.
If allowing some moron to rabbit on the phone keeps down the price of my ticket, then I'm happy. Pirate flag for O'Leary who deserves it.
