The airline flies thousands of passengers to destinations around Europe every year and insists these consumer surveys do not reflect reality.

Renowned for its cheap travel deals, Phillips asks whether the company’s cost-cutting initiatives have gone too far, at the risk of upsetting both passengers and staff.

The company has suffered profit warnings, fallouts with unions and high profile flight cancellations, which have all contributed to tarnishing its reputation.

Tonight’s documentary will uncover the issues which have seen the airline’s transition from a huge business success story, to being named as the worst airline in Britain for the sixth year running.

When is it on TV?

Inside Ryanair: Britain’s Biggest Budget Airline will air on Channel 5 tonight at 10:15pm.
