Title: Take Ryanair out of the vent

Ryanair's airline code is FR. Subtracting these letters from fissure (the vent) gives issue.

  • $\begingroup$ You've got the right overall answer and correctly explained most of the clues, but the word 'left' is important in the fourth line and I was originally planning to use the word 'crevice' instead of 'vent' for the title. It would only have worked with Ryanair, not any other airline. $\endgroup$ – Gordon K Mar 26 at 9:25
  • $\begingroup$ @GordonK Ah, good Ryanair clue - I will update. (And retry the not left). $\endgroup$ – Tom Mar 26 at 9:38
