Ryanair is sharpening its cattle class focus - boss Michael O'Leary has confirmed he is prepared to take mountain goats in exchange for new flight routes to Greece, as opposed to pound sterling or euros. (Or even drachmas.) It's thought the payment goat option is due to the likelihood of Greece defaulting, switching to its former (probably rapidly plunging) local currency - which would likely fuel a tourist boom.
