IAA criticises “Dispatches” over Ryanair programme

The Irish Aviation Authority has published a detailed rebuttal of almost all the allegations made in the Channel 4 Dispatches programme that looked into Ryanair’s safety culture.

Meanwhile press reports indicate that Ryanair is preparing to take the programme to court, but the airline has not yet confirmed this. When the Times made similar allegations in a story about Ryanair’s fuel planning system after the 2010 diversion incidents in Spain, the airline challenged the newspaper and it had to climb down.
