The UK Advertising watchdog received 2,370 complaints about the advert making it the third most complained about ad of all time.
In Ireland, where a similar ad campaign is running, the Advertising Standards Authority for Ireland has received 106 complaints, of which 92 relate to Irish media with the complaints process currently undergoing.
What do you think about the ad? Should it be banned here? Or, is it – as Ryanair have claimed, simply intended to be ‘uplifting’, encouraging people to consider a ‘brighter future’ when we could go on holiday with friends and family again.
