Ryanair To Sue Channel 4 Over Dispatches Programme

The publishers of the Daily Mail and Channel 4 will most probably be sued by Ryanair because of assertions about the airline’s attitude towards safety.

Because of the documentary ‘Ryanair: Secrets from the Cockpit’ where the pilot John Goss mentioned the airline’s safety policy on the national television he was immediately sacked.See our range of Health and Safety Documents

The low budget airline stated: “We will not allow a Ryanair employee to defame our safety on national television”.

In their words only three weeks earlier Goss claimed he did not concern in any way about the safety of the airline.

Because of this, Ryanair stated they intended to take more serious libel action against Associated Newspapers Ltd, publisher of the Daily Mail.

Ryanair’s PR agency rejected to share the title, or titles, which will be the target of legal proceedings. Their spokeswoman came out with the words that they would not comment pending legal cases.

The legal representatives for Ryanair, Johnsons confirmed that the Dublin’s high court has already been hearing the cases on the matter.

The law firm said “We have been instructed to vigorously prosecute these libel proceedings”.

According to its representatives these allegations were far from the real situation.

All pilots working in Ryanair had the chance to read a memo describing the reasons for the dismissal of pilot John Goss.

Ryanair tried to assure everyone that safety is the most important thing for them and they always put it at first place.

Johnsons said passengers had nothing to worry about because according to their words Ryanair was working with the safest airlines in Europe and had a 29- year safety record.
