the only reason why sofia took that flight is that there is a route between santander and london provided by ryainair. her intention was not to save money but to save time, get straight to her brother, without having to go back to madrid.

not sure sofia likes the fact that is was made public, the british tabloids only picked up on it to make their own royals look like money wasters, a cheap story. by the way, the flight might have cost 13 £ but in total, including taxes etc, sofia might have paid a similar amout to a flight madrid - london with iberia. the winner here is ryan air and their CEO Michael O'Leary who might use sofia for one of his infamous campaigns (similar to the one with Carla Bruni
Carla Bruni awarded damages from Ryanair - Telegraph
whether she likes it or not. in case sofia decides to sue, even more publicity for him

Sofia of Spain uses budget airline to pop over and visit her brother - hellomagazine.com

Article from Hello!
I think it's wonderful that she flew commercial, never mind the publicity.

And on top of that Ryanair does not have a business class, or anything, so she flew just like the rest of us, although I suspect that there was some serious security on board, and that her ticket was booked under another name.

How it was predictable, Ryanair has taken advantage of the circumstances to do advertising with the image of the Queen. The Royal House has said that hasn´t been consulted and has not authorized it, and that are studying what to do.

Ryanair aprovecha el vuelo 'low cost' de la Reina para una campaña | Comunicación | elmundo.es

I do not believe that the Royal House denounces how did Sarkozy and Bruni, but I think the company must acquire the commitment of the advertisement and donated money to a charitable association.

She must have left in a hurry to London, otherwise I do not understand why the palace did stipulate "no direct advertising" (the publicity is advertisement enough) and have Ryanair sign it

Hahaha yes sooo predictable. Alomost to the degree that Sofia must have taken into consideration when booking with Ryan air.
Spain's royal family 'upset' after Ryanair used Queen's photo in advert - Telegraph
AFP: Spain's royal palace unhappy over Ryanair ad
Right royal row forces Ryanair to pull advert - National News, Frontpage - Independent.ie

I can't imagine they will sue the media, have they ever done? Complaining yes but go to court? I don't think so. But that's what Ryain Air would love to see as it means even bigger press. Maybe they even give compensation money to Sofia for that reason only, without a court asking them
