THIS SUMMER SPAIN NEEDS YOU!

ESPANYA ET NECESSITA

Ryanair has launched a SPANISH RESCUE OFFER. In their website you can see an Uncle Tom and you can read THIS SUMMER SPAIN NEEDS YOU! This is what you can read in the UK English version. But there are other versions:

In España (castellano) version you can read ESTE VERANO QUÉDATE EN ESPAÑA, !TE NECESITA! and OFERTA EN VUELOS NACIONALES.

In Espanya (catalan) version you can read AQUEST ESTIU QUEDA’T A ESPANYA, ET NECESSITA! and OFERTA DE RESCAT EN VOLS NACIONALS.

SPANIEN BRAUCHT DICH

The Irish version has no rescue package for Spain. But you can find also the rescue package in other versions, like the ones from Austria and Germany:
SPANIEN BRAUCH DICH DIESEN SOMMER and ANGEBOT ZUR RETTUNG SPANIENS.

In French version:

CET ÉTE, ESPAGNE A BESOIN DE VOUS! and OFFRE DE SAUVETAGE

The Italian version:

QUESTA ESTATE, SPAGNA HA BISOGNO DI TE! and OFFERTA SALVA ESPAGNA.

LA SPAGNA HA BISOGNO DI TE

Looking at all the versions I see that not all the versions want to save Spain this summer! In fact it seems that Ryanair only gives the opportunity to save Spain to some versions! So the UK English, Belgium French, France French, Italy Italian, Austria German, Spain Castilian and Spain Catalan and Germany German version are the only ones that offer a rescue package. And in the case of Spain Catalan and Spain Castilian version they write about staying in Spain while in the others they write about coming to Spain.

L’ESPAGNE A BESOIN DE VOUS!

The weird thing is that the French community of Belgium is offered the opportunity to save Spain this summer while the Flemish community in Belgium do not have the opportunity to save Spain, at least this summer. I find that quite unfair! If Ryanair does not want the Flemish to save Spain at least they could give them the opportunity to save Catalonia this summer! It seems that people from Finland and Holland won’t be able to save Spain either.

Taking into account that Ryanair is an Irish company I also wondered what could happen in the Irish version but as I said before Irish version gives no opportunity to save Spain.

ESPAÑA TE NECESITA

So only people who Speak English in the UK, Castilian in Spain, Catalan in Spain, Italian in Italy, German in Austria or Germany or French in France or Belgium can save Spain. I imagine that if Ireland is not included is because it won’t make sense. For the same reason I imagine that the Portuguese version is no offering the possibility to save Spain.

Most of the people who are given the opportunity to save Spain may act in self-interest as they are saving a country using the same currency. The only ones left to save Spain for altruistic reasons are the British.

THIS SUMMER SPAIN NEEDS YOU!
