Kind Ryanair Passenger Pays 'Tearful' Mum's Luggage Fee After Bag Is Deemed Too Big
A Ryanair passenger paid a distressed mum's luggage fee after the airline allegedly wanted to charge her £50.
The mum-of-three became visibly distressed after staff allegedly said that her bag was too big to be taken on board.
Another passenger filmed the moment before they all boarded the flight from Ibiza to Stansted on Sunday.
The camera pans to the stressed mum, whose children are all playing together - and she can be seen anxiously running her hands through her hair.
The kind stranger reassures the overwhelmed mum, saying: "It's alright, it's alright."
She puts her face in her hands as he calms her down, before going to the counter and paying the fee for her.
The video was filmed by another passenger, who posted it on Twitter.
It was captioned: "Well done to this young hero for paying the ridiculous Ryanair baggage charges for a distressed mother travelling with three kids (who wasn't getting any leniency from ground staff).
"The flight from Ibiza to Stansted was half empty, not sure what difference a few cm would make."
The video has been viewed thousands of times, with social media users praising the man's selfless act.

One said: "This young man and others in the younger generations have restored my faith in humanity, they will steer the future right if we allow them the room to shine."
Another wrote: "What a legend! Karma will see him good."
A third commented: "What a great, caring human being. More of us should learn to do the same."
The passenger later added: "Great kid isn't he? No idea who he is though, kept himself to himself and acted honourably and discreetly without a fuss."
Speaking about the kind act, the 46-year-old traveller said: "As far as I could tell, the mother with her children had got caught out with a bag that exceeded the allowance on her ticket.
"She was upset and rather tearful while also trying to keep an eye on her kids.
"By the time I figured out what was going on, a young man stepped up to the ground handling staff and was heard to say 'it's okay, I'll pay'.
"The man preferred to remain anonymous."
