"The budget airline model won't work for councils" - John Burgess

John Burgess, secretary of Barnet Unison, has had his response to the 'easyCouncil' Guardian articles published online here.

I wish I could draw. I have a picture of Barnet council leader Mike Freer in my head, wearing an air steward's uniform: "I'm Mikey, fly me". Oh, and there is endless fun to be had with the concept of Brianair. But life is too short, and I'm in an internet cafe on the Isle of Wight.

Interesting article in the paper yesterday. Ryanair announced their latest price rises. From October, checking in at the airport will cost £30 instead of £20 and there will be a £40 charge for printing out a boarding pass at the airport.

A recurring complaint against budget airlines is that they advertise low fares, but once all the extras are added on, it can cost more than conventional airlines. The public have every right to be worried about easyCouncil.
