I am not knowledgable enough to significantly comment on technical details, but what I do know is that there is talk about some sort of a legal initiative to tackle this particular 'problem' too, so what may have barely passed the test in the past, may no longer do so in future.
Let's be honnest: flying full time for Ryan Air, they can't be doing much else, can they?
It is only fair if people who are indeed full time pilots for Ryan Air are made to pay the very same taxes as every other full time employee in Belgium: I say so as a highly taxes employee myself who doesn't like it when others get themselves a preferential treatment by exploiting the loopholes in the international fiscal laws, because in the end, it will just make my own taxes higher somehow!

In which case there is no reason to complain for sure, because a level playing field is the best guarantee for having a choice in future too, it's what the european rules are all about remember? Just because it now seems like the competition distorting issues are to be found on the side of Ryan Air, doesn't automatically mean they should be given less importance by the market regulators, you know?
