Ryanair has savage reaction after woman compares train ‘window’ seat to their planes
| Last updated
Now, as we all know, whoever is behind Ryanair's Twitter account clearly isn't a stranger to shutting down keyboard warriors, critics and pretty much anyone who has something less than lovely to say about the budget airline.
The latest in the saga follows the airline posting a pretty savage reaction after one woman compared a train 'window' seat to one of their planes.
Refusing to hold back, Ryanair shot back with a hilarious response which has since left the internet in stitches.
Lindsay Richards took to Twitter earlier this week (9 August) to share with her 211 followers her latest commuter antics, snapping a selfie sat on a train next to a window just to the right of her.
Oh yeah - she was also donning a pair of pretty large sunnies which is important to keep in mind.
Lindsay captioned the tweet: "@EastMidRailway have taken a leaf out of Ryanair’s book when it comes to 'window' seats."
Now, at the time of posting, Lindsay probably had no idea that an admin at the airline itself would come across the tweet and deliver their own little punchy hit-back.
Pretty impressive too, if you ask me, considering she didn't tag or hashtag Ryanair once.
Mere hours after the woman posted the initial tweet, Ryanair shot back with a two-word response which has clearly left Twitter reeling.
Going down the simple but effective route, the airline simply retweeted Lindsay's post and added: "Alright, Bono."
Now, unless you've been living under a rock for the past five decades or so, you'll know that the U2 star, Bono, has developed a reputation for wearing some fairly out-there eyewear.
The tweet has since gone viral after clocking up a massive 3.1 million views since it was first posted on Wednesday (9 August).
And, of course, it didn't take long for the U2 puns to start being thrown about left, right and centre.
One Twitter user quipped: "She still hasn’t found what she’s looking for…" while a second chimed in: "With or without view."
"Where the seats have no pane," joshed a third.
Many others, however, pointed out that Lindsay did in fact have a window seat after all.
"Eeemmmh missed something here," wrote one, "that’s the window beside you."
A second added: "Literally posted an angle where you can see the window."
"The window is literally there," pointed out a final Twitter user before Ryanair responded: "Welcome to our life."
