Ryanair Posts Video Claiming To Expose 'Fake Photo' Of Cabin Crew Sleeping On The Floor

Ryanair Posts Video Claiming To Expose 'Fake Photo' Of Cabin Crew Sleeping On The Floor

Days ago, a photograph emerged of Ryanair staff being made to 'sleep on the floor' in Malaga, Spain, due to stormy weather.

Now, the budget airline has responded to the allegations with a video which shows the crew getting on the floor for a matter of seconds before getting back up and returning to their seats.

Ryanair says that this shows the initial picture was 'clearly staged'.

In a statement alongside the video, Ryanair said: "This picture is clearly staged and no crew 'slept on the floor'. Due to storms in Porto (13 Oct) a number of flights diverted to Malaga and as this was a Spanish national holiday, hotels were fully booked.

"The crew spent a short period of time in the crew room before being moved to a VIP lounge, and returned to Porto the next day (none of the crew operated flights)."

The Ryanair crew were left stranded at the Spanish airport on October 13 after a number of flights were diverted due to a storm.

It was claimed that the hotels were fully booked due to it being the Spanish national holiday. While some people were outraged, others questioned the post.

One said: "Evaluate the pic. All have their faces covered. The woman at the front looks like she is smirking. They are lined up in a way their identities are kept anonymous. It's staged at best."

Ryanair is still facing backlash after posting the 'exposé' with one person taking to Twitter commenting: "You have to ask yourselves why they feel the need to do this? Stop ignoring your problems."

Another added: "If you would have provided hotel accommodation to crew. They wouldn't have to do such things. Shame on you once more, Ryanair."

A third said: "Fake photo or not, you left them without a place to stay and it deserves media exposure. You should work on improving your internal processes if this situation is not a single occasion instead of wasting time to post surveillance footage on Twitter."

No rest for the wicked here then.
