Ryanair exposes ignorance

"No point flying planes empty" said the airline spokeswoman to the Guardian(Ryanair angers greens with 1m free flights, 17.05.2007).
Maybe not, but there is a point in leaving some seats empty, rather than filling them with freeloaders. The heavier the plane, them more CO2 is spewed forth in the effort to keep it up. If Ryanair speakers are ignorant of basic physics, it makes us wonder what else they may have overlooked...
