IT’S usually the other way around, that it’s the Coimission suing Ryanair .

Mr O’Leary has made an official complaint to the independent watchdog that oversees the EC’s spending.

The complaint comes after the colourful entrepreneur was told at the end of last year that the commission’s travel agency could not book him on to a Ryanair flight to speak at a conference on innovation in Brussels.

The aviation boss was instead offered a ticket on rival Aer Lingus.

You can see him tell this story in this rather amusing (but long) video of the conference that they actually invited him to.
