Ryanair annoys unionists with 'provocative' advert

Ryanair has attracted the ire of unionist politicians over an ad for its services in the North.

The ad shows a mock-up of Martin McGuinness with the caption that Ryanair flights are: "so cheap even the British army used them to go home".

Michael Copeland, an Ulster Unionist MLA in east Belfast, has described the promotion as insensitive, crass and provocative to people who consider the North a part of Britain.

He has suggested that he may boycott Ryanair when booking personal air travel.
