Like him or not, O'Leary is walking on air in the smiles-high club
Last Friday week, there was a small crash on the M50. Try getting to the airport from most places in Dublin if there is a crash on the M50: the chances of you making it on time are slim to non-existent.
We scrambled, arguing, angry and stressed into Terminal 1, a mere 35 minutes before the take-off of a Ryanair flight. Family half-term holidays must increase the chances of divorce dramatically.
Resigned to missing the flight, we trudged up to the desk. The woman at the desk told us the check-in was closed but after a bit of pleading, she spoke to her manager, a Scottish guy. He rang the gate, smiled and said: "Okay, just run."
