Ryanair ‘sexist adverts’ banned after complaints19 February 2012
Two UK newspaper adverts for budget airline Ryanair have been banned after complaints from readers that they were sexist and treated women as objects.
The Advertising Standards Authority (ASA), which received 17 complaints, said they were likely to cause offence.
The adverts showed women posing in bra and pants with the headline “Red Hot Fares & Crew! One way from Â£9.99“.
