I think the contract is only valid with scheduled flights, RyanAir is charter. I've rarely felt the need to use a budget carrier. The market will sort itself out.

travel card better than oyster

I travel to londimium on odd days. I've tried oyster PAYG, but have always been charged more, due to various issues beyond my control. The paper travelcard is fool proof, you pay for it up front £4.80 and no matter what you do, fail to put into gates, fold it, abuse it, you never get charged any more, and you can sell it to student for £2 - bargain

Vapourware hack - but done already

Yawn. We demonstrated this at BlackHat last year... There are so many cameras and other deterrents on the tube, that I don't know who will use this type of fraud. Terrorists will buy proper tickets, Kids get free travel. Maybe organised crime can do a massive DDOS, but how will that work?
