Of course they do.
But not necessarily because they're interested in the product.
My favourite ads are the lotto ads backed by the Elvis song "If I Can Dream".
I don't buy lotto tickets I just like the song.
That's just one example.

Remember the "For mash get smash" ads? Gas, but we always had the real thing.

I think Electric Ireland had an ape in one of it's ads.
Cadbury with a Phil Collins song also had an ape.

Ryanair.
Normally I'd be a fan.
Cheap even with bag charges however lately I think they're having a bit of a p!ss take.
However I'm wondering are they at a new squeeze.
The temperature in the plane always seems to be uncomfortably warm and requests to have it reduced seem to have no effect.
Either -
1. The AC systems on dodgy (on their newest planes too).
2. They're trying to get people to buy more drinks (with ice).
3. The cockpit crew are feeling cold and instead of wearing Warner clothing are jacking up the temperature setting.
4. ???

High altitude air is extremely dry, EDITED TO REMOVE INCORRECT INFORMATION, read someone better informed if you are interested!

It's also cheaper and saves fuel.


Their air is very dry, that's for sure. But why so warm?

No idea. I had read this column by Patrick Smith before but obviously managed to completely forget everything from it. It's worth a read and contradicts what I had said above.

Interesting read - thanks.

So the heat could actually be because they're running the air conditioning units that cool the hot compressed air at a lower cooling rate to save on electricity, to save on fuel.

Could be wrong on this but given that it's Ryanair they probably keep the air warm so that you spend more on drinks and so that they can use the sweat you leave on the seat to wash away stains instead of having to spend money cleaning it.
