Ryanair's planned three-day shutdown of its entire reservations system over this weekend turned into just two days, the carrier says.
As we commented in our March issue, it had incredibly taken the decision to close itself for bookings while it transferred from its Navitaire Open Skies res system to the all-singing all-dancing New Skies one.
Most remarkable of all is Ryanair's plea for customers: "We expect to be dealing with some small bedding down issues over the next few days and we would ask passengers to please bear with us as we iron them out."
Hang on, you want customers to cut you some slack. That's rich coming from the airline that is as black and white about customer service as it gets.
