Michael O'Leary's Raging & Future-Proofing At The Ploughing

Michael O'Leary's Raging & Future-Proofing At The Ploughing

It's been a week of uncharacteristically poor PR management at Ryanair with the airline forced to cancel 2 per cent of its flights over the next six weeks, due to a cock-up concerning pilots holidays.

Irish Times Consumer Affairs correspondent Conor Pope says Michael O'Leary is clearly raging over the blunder but it's unlikely to have any lasting impact on the brand.

He joins business reporter Barry O'Halloran to discuss the crisis affecting more than 300,000 of the airline's customers.

In the second part of the show Business Affairs correspondent Mark Paul hits the National Ploughing Championships to take the pulse of Ireland's agriculture sector and find out what farmers are most concerned about with Brexit just around the corner.
