I laud Queen Sofia for being frugal and travelling like ordinary people do. She is a brave woman to travel without security.

As much as I think that her decision was reasonable, I doubt Queen Sofia travelled without security, queuing up like Joe Average on the Ryan Air counter. I am sure she will have received special treatment because Ryan Air is famous not only for being one of the cheapest airlines but also for providing zero service. They are even thinking about charging people for using the loo during the flight.

it is great PR for Ryanair.

and for the spanish royal family, not that they need it I think, this anecdote is just a small reason why they are respected.

Well ... it is fair to think that Queen Sofia was afforded a special treatment. Ryan Air has got an excellent PR. Queen Sofia saved some money on a ticket... That is all... I hope savings are significant enough to be reported. By the way, I have read that cheap Ryan Air is not all that cheap, when all expenses and fees are factored in.

Do not agree this time with you,

it is not quite all, it is an attitude, an intention that is appealing to many people.

Intentions and the attitude, it goes without saying, were noble. Some may find Queen Sofia's actions hypocritical stating that rich people love to do token deeds. Other may find Queen Sofia's deed sincere. That is all there is to it
