Photo of Stranded Crew Sleeping on Airport Floor is Staged, Says Airline
Ryanair claims the photograph of a flight crew
sleeping on an airport overnight is “staged”
4 Ryanair flight crews were stranded overnight
by a storm in Malaga airport in Spain on Oct 13.
Local hotels were all fully-booked, due to the storm
and the Spanish national holiday, said Ryanair.
A union claimed that they had no access to food
or drink for 5 hours, without enough seats.
A photograph showed the crew apparently
‘sleeping’ on the floor of a crew room.
Ryanair says the 4 crews flew home the following
day, but did not operate the flights.
