Six crew members from Ryanair have to stay overnight at the Malaga airport due to a storm. The airline does not cover hotel accommodation. When protesting, the crew lay on the floor and is now released for action.
It has been reported that Ryanair has released six crew members for allegedly featured photographs. They had supported their "false claim" with a "fake photo" they had to lie on the floor, said the Irish budget airline. It claimed that many international media had violated Ryanair's reputation.
A photograph of six photographers in Portugal at Malaga Airport, a Twitter photo in October, caused a lot of confusion. In fact, those who suffered said they simply set the photos on the floor.
The dismissal of trade unions has been sharply criticized. The photo was a legitimate form in protest against working conditions. Nobody from the team, but a foreigner, has not published it on social networks, said the head of the Portuguese trade union SNPVAC Luicana Passo, the Portuguese news agency Lusa.
All hotels are reserved
In her opinion, on October 14, 24 hours, crew members had to spend the night at the Malaga airport because of a storm. They were originally located in a command room with only eight chairs. At six in the morning they moved to the client's VIP salon.
After Twitter photo, Ryanair CEO Peter Bellew apologized for the crew. All hotels in Malaga were booked, he explained. However, the Spanish Association SITCPLA doubts Bellews's information that there is no space available in the tourist fortress, such as Malaga and its surroundings, during the winter season.
