In an interview with the Irish Independent, the budget carrier’s chief executive Michael O’Leary said it might ditch the look as it tries to improve its public image.

What would replace it? Photos of “happy, smiley” people, he said.

“If we’re going to focus more and more, as we are, on the customer experience, maybe a little less in your face and the use of more subtle colours and better imaging,” O’Leary said.

“I think on the bulkheads we’re looking at something a bit more lively than just the yellow with the blue Ryanair logo. We’re looking at different alternatives such as photos of happy, smiley people, destinations – something a bit more visually interesting than just the traditional old logo.”

Don’t get too excited. A spokesman for the airline downplayed his boss’s comments, telling Telegraph Travel that any changes to the interiors were in the “planning and design” phase.
