Ryanair have introduced a new 2008 calendar which will definately get the headlines:
The question is, is it genuinely for charity or is it more for publicity? Does it even matter?
AirSpace - more than just hot air
I think it's fairly obvious it's for publicity but I don't think it matters. I seriously doubt the girls involved have been forced into doing it so as long as a charity comes out with a few extra quid in its bank account, what does it matter?
My wings are like a shield of steel.
I think it is pretty typical of Ryanair in terms of getting cheap publicity any way possible but as long as a good cause gets at least something from it then it doesn't hurt!!!
More like false advertising. How do a group of Irish gals have such great tans? (being Irish and a girl, I'd really like to know the answer).
My mother is Irish and she tans well. It's probably something to do with the Spanish Armada!
Who cares ! Where are the other 12 pages ?
You get to see the other twelve pages depending on whether you're a perv or one of those altruistic souls.
Of course. I'm clearly only interesting in the welfare of the ladies pictured, that theyre not being exploited and that the contents are of sufficient quality to attract the maximum possible donation to charity.

Since you only have good intentions, here are some of them.
Oh no, I couldnt possibly............[Click]
Think January Julia gets my vote.
Okay the Ryanair calendar is good but this is better:
I think the bar has definately been raised (so to speak) on the calendar front:
My vote stays with Ryanair, whose calendar features flight attendants, not working models.
In answer to the question......Publicity..........Charity work involves purchasing a ticket and flying Ryanair....
P.S Does the recommended retail price of said calendar included tax ???
There's an article on the Guardian's website stating that a Spanish women's institute are complaining to EU and Irish Authorities regarding the calender. I can't imagine that a Ryanair spokeswoman's response of "We are just protecting women's rights to take their clothes off" helped matters.
