Meg Ryan, Ryan O'Neal, Brian Ryan O'Ryan. If your first, middle or last name is Ryan, you might want to consider a trip to the U.K. this month.
According to a BBC report, budget airlines Ryanair and Virgin Express are battling over passengers -- and the result is two separate promotions that offer free flights to anybody called Ryan.
That's right, Ryan -- free flights for you. Virgin, which started the promotions, is offering complimentary flights from Ireland's Shannon Airport to London's Gatwick Airport between May 4 and May 14. Not to be outdone, Irish airline Ryanair is offering persons named Ryan -- and one friend of his or her choice -- free flights between Shannon and London's Stansted Airport through May 24.
So hurry up, Ryans and friends of Ryans -- tickets are going fast. "There has been huge demand," a Ryanair spokeswoman told the BBC. "There are a lot of Ryans out there."
A Virgin Express spokeswoman agreed. "There are an amazing amount of Ryans in Ireland," she said.
To receive their free flight, Ryans need to show up with identification, of course.
