Disgruntled Ryanair Passengers

Friday, February 7, 2014

A Rabat to Paris flight is usually two and a half hours long.

But on a Ryanair flight from Rabat, Morocco, to Paris a passenger became sick and the crew diverted to Madrid. Because of noise restrictions, the crew had to land in Nantes instead of Paris, and had to overnight there.

Somewhere between Rabat and Nantes, passengers angry at being in the plane for seven hours, took food and drinks and were hostile to the flight crew.

Personnel in Nantes said the Ryanair passengers were behaving in an “animal and barbaric fashion.” Apparently police were called but nothing was done.

A hotel was provided in Nantes. The passengers did finally make it to Paris via bus.
