See the ‘sexist’ Ryanair adverts!

‘Sexist’ Ryanair advert banned by watchdog after thousands sign employee’s online petition calling it ‘demeaning’
When the Advertising Standards Authority banned a series of adverts for Ryanair following complaints from female staff that they were demeaning, Paul Dacre’s Daily Mail quickly stepped in to reproduce many of the ads free of charge. And banana buffing readers can see the ‘making of’ video that goes behind the scenes of cabin crew charity calendar, featuring plenty of stripped down cabin crew.


‘[The ASA] said one image, entitled “Ornella February”, which showed a model pulling down the top of her pants with a thumb, was particularly “sexually suggestive”,’ reports Lee Boyce for the red blooded tabloid. Lee Boyce points out that at the time of an offer to Oslo, Norway the temperature was between zero and four degrees Celsius, so Daily Mail readers who booked flights would be most unlikely to meet bikini clad lovelies on their holiday and would feel ripped off.

But thanks the Daily Mail, banana buffers can see the sexist ads for themselves and enjoy the stripped off cabin crew without interference from the ASA.
