The budget airline took shots at the Tesla CEO for being a “crypto bro”. Mr Musk, who is also seeking to buy social media company Twitter, previously touted various cryptocurrencies online, including Dogecoin.
Ryanair posted a picture on Twitter of the ‘Tinder Swindler’ Simon Leviev flying in a private jet.
They said “Crypto bros yesterday vs. Crypto bros today” with two pictures of Mr Leviev, including one edited into a Ryanair seat.
Replying to their own post, Ryanair then tweeted at Elon Musk and asked “this you?”, mocking the CEO for his support of cryptocurrency.
Twitter user @CryptoDavio fired back at the airline: “Somebody being paid peanuts by Mike O'Leary bitter they missed the run.
“Don't forget to turn off the lights on the way out tonight or he'll dock your pay.”
Ryanair then shot back: “we get paid in crypto.”
