Easyjet’s punctuality disappears just like Mr Easyjet (Stelios)
Wednesday 24, March 2010
Ryanair, Britain’s favourite airline, today (23rd Mar) called on Andy ‘Houdini’ Harrison to reveal how he made easyjet’s punctuality stats and Mr easyjet (Stelios) disappear just one week after Ryanair called on easyjet to restart publishing weekly punctuality info on its re-launched website.
Ryanair released a screenshot taken just one week ago from easyjet’s website which claimed punctuality was a “top priority” and a second screenshot, taken yesterday, which proved that easyjet has finally thrown in the towel and scrapped its punctuality page after failing to publish its punctuality for over 45 weeks since the 26th April 2009.

Out of concern for Mr easyjet (Stelios), Ryanair called on Houdini Harrison, who will soon disappear from easyjet, to explain where Mr easyjet (Stelios) has gone, after the usually talkative Stelios failed to reply to Michael O’Leary’s invitation to a “Sumo Smackdown” in Trafalgar Square to settle this dispute over easyjet’s “cancelled” punctuality statistics, and easyjet’s high fares.
Ryanair’s Michael O’Leary said:
“Ryanair calls on Houdini Harrison to reveal how he has made both Mr easyjet (Stelios) and his punctuality stats, which were once their “top priority”, disappear. Since Stelios controls the Easy brand and effectively controls easyjet, it is not unreasonable to ask what Mr easyjet thinks of his airline’s admission that punctuality is no longer important enough to appear on the easyjet website.
“It’s time for Stelios to admit that neither he nor his airline can compete with Ryanair on prices, on punctuality or in a sumo wrestling bout in Trafalgar Square either, otherwise Mr easyjet himself should ensure that “his” airline stops talking about punctuality and simply admits that when it comes to Ryanair easyjet can’t hide and can’t run either”.
As the Vancouver Olympic Winter Games draw to a close, London 2012 organisers have been taking advantage of the final opportunity to experience and learn from an Olympic Games, before London becomes the next Olympic Host City.
As the 21st Winter Olympic Games wind down in Vancouver, my thoughts naturally turn to the 22nd Winter Olympic Games scheduled for February 7 through 23, 2014, in Sochi, Russia. 2014 will mark the first time that Russia will host the Winter Games – Moscow hosted the Summer Games in 1980.
Even in these difficult economic times, companies are still seeing value in business aviation and are looking to increase business jet travel in 2010.
