Again a flashy headline featuring the Irish low-cost airline Ryanair, a carrier which begins every press release by entitling itself as “the world’s favourite airline”. This time it appears that Ryanair is not the baddie – it just uses a pretty good PR-opportunity that came its way.
You might have heard about a bunch of Belgian students who arrived at the Airport Lanzarote both delayed and in a festive mood. They were allowed to proceed on board provided they paid for the baggage they had not checked in, a proposal they turned down and moreover allegedly behaved in an aggressive manner. It led to them not being allowed on board which in its turned engendered righteous anger in those students who were on board. Long story short – mutiny broke out. Guardia Civil had to intervene.
