Ryanair CEO Slams the Unvaccinated, Calling them "Idiots"

Europe’s largest budget carrier Ryanair boss believes only vaccinated passengers should be allowed to fly, calling anyone opposed to vaccination an “idiot.”

Ryanair Holdings CEO Michael O’Leary, however, has pushed back against mandatory Coronavirus vaccination programs being implemented in Austria and Germany. In an interview with The Telegraph, he said that governments should “make life difficult” for people who refuse to take the vaccine without a good reason.

Vaccines should be mandatory for admission to the hospital, for flights, for the London Underground, and for access to supermarkets and pharmacies, he said.

Every individual has the right to choose not to get vaccinated if they so desire. Even though it is obviously an idiotic decision, we respect your right to be an idiot if you object to vaccination because it is some government/big pharma conspiracy.”

As a result of the Omicron variant, passengers are cancelling or delaying their trips, leading to a fresh wave of restrictions. As a result of this, O’Leary said Ryanair will fly 10% fewer passengers in December.

Omicron to effect Ryanair

In addition, he said he expected the first few months of 2022 to be weak if restrictions remain unclear or if new measures are put in place.

Earlier this week, Ryanair’s CEO grabbed headlines as he mocked British Prime Minister Boris Johnson over Christmas parties in Downing Street via Twitter. An image published by the government described mock government responses to coronavirus alert levels, which ranged from “small gathering with wine and cheese” to “full-on rave”.

The Telegraph reported that O’Leary did not apologize for his actions, saying: “You get rewarded around here for upsetting Johnson and his idiots.”

Furthermore, he criticised the UK government for panicking over the Omicron variant when other European countries do not seem to be concerned, saying this would likely prevent people from travelling over the Christmas holiday.
