Until this week, there was one sure way to get a free cup of tea out of Ryanair: present yourself as a journalist at one of the airline's press conferences.

These are worrying times for shareholders in Luminar, the nightclubs operator, which is working on a recovery plan it hopes will appease the banks that agreed to waive its debt covenants earlier this year.

Manchester City shirts, you see, are sponsored by Etihad Airways.
