Our Wednesday Three: Ryanair & French Music

Hmmm. A sleepy Wednesday is upon us. On our radar screens:

1. These ridiculous Champions League Final fares on Ryanair, which start at £299 for one-way fares between Liverpool and Athens and at €399 one-way fares between Dublin and Athens. We repeat: on Ryanair. Really?

2. Simultaneously, Ryanair is offering one million free seats for travel in June and July. You’ve heard it before, right? Well, kinda. These fares are actually free—no taxes or charges. Full stop. Flights can be booked through Monday.

3. The band representing France at Eurovision may not have fared all that well, but whatevs. France’s Fête de la Musique is coming up on June 21.
