RYANAIR’S MICHAEL O’LEARY is taking customer service serious these days. Today the chief executive was on hand to check the boarding passes from passengers on their way to London.

In October, the outspoken Ryanair boss said he was willing to change and wanted to look after his customers more.

A day’s work

He admitted he had “made mistakes” in the past in terms of the company’s approach to customer service was going to change for the better.

Who knew that he took his message to heart so much.

Pajo Fenton took this photo today at Terminal 1 at Dublin Airport and said O’Leary was helping check in a flight to Gatwick. Unfortunately, Pajo said his Ryanair flight to Stansted was delayed by an hour and a half.
