And don't miss Chris Bryant on Michael O'Leary's perhaps too-long tenure: "It seems harsh to query the leadership of someone who, in two decades, made Ryanair Europe's biggest airline. Although O'Leary didn't think up budget air travel (he copied Southwest Airlines Co.), Ryanair has almost caught up with its American role model in volume terms. With a near-maniacal focus on cost, the Irish carrier has kept expanding profit. O'Leary was rewarded in 2014 with a five-year contract extension. But the boss is starting to feel a little like excess baggage, rather than an asset."
