Poll: What do you think of the Ryanair calendar?

Do you buy the calendar, or do you bypass it?

RYANAIR HAS BEEN ordered by a Spanish court to drop advertising for its calendar after a judge deemed the ads ‘discriminatory’.

The calendar raises money for charity, and last year it garnered over €100,000 in funds for a Polish charity for sick children.

However, the company has been criticised for only featuring female staff in bikinis in the calendar. Staff are not compelled to appear in it but the fact they are scantily clad has been described by some as sexist.

We ask: What do you think of the Ryanair calendar?


Poll Results:

I don't mind it - but I wouldn't buy it (4308)
I think it's sexist/discriminatory (3046)
I think it's a good idea (2073)
