What's hard to believe is that staff moved the woman to another seat rather than removing the man from the plane.  Twisted Evil

The woman asked to be moved next to her daughter so no problem there but if I was doing the shouting I would expect to be evicted and meet a policeman when I got off

I sincerely hope not.  Why on earth Ryanair didn’t kick the scumbag off in Spain is beyond me.  

Unfortunately because the plane hadn’t taken off the British Police have no jurisdiction so here’s hoping he’s identified soon so some other punishment is forthcoming.

"Unfortunately because @Ryanair is registered in Dublin not in the UK the alleged offence could only be tried by UK authorities if it was 'in flight' to the UK. Section 92(1) Civil Aviation Act s.92(4) defines 'in flight'.
"If this incident had have happened on an alternative airline under 'British Control' or it was already 'in flight' to the UK the prosecuting authorities could have prosecuted."

If the man had been drunk they would have kicked him off the plane but because it was racial abuse to an old lady people literally stood by and watched. If Ryanair's chief exec and directors were capable of any shame they should hang their heads at the actions (or inaction rather) of their staff.

But in defence of the crew apparently, if the plane had been delayed while they took the man and his bags off the flight, so they lost their 'slot' for take off they would have lost pay! I though those sorts of contracts were illegal. It's appalling.

I have never flown Ryanair anyway but I hope may others will take note and do the same. That is the only way these people listen, when it hurts the bottom line. Disgusting! Evil or Very Mad

I have flown Ryanair from Leeds Bradford a few times and found them excellent, left on time and arrived early. I think we have to be very careful and condemn the man in question, how could anyone not and maybe question the staff, personally I would not blame the member of staff in the video, he looked a little lost and out of his depth, I would ask what the senior steward/supervisor was doing. The staff are staff, doing a job and usually doing it in the way they are told by the airline and its the airline at fault along can I say with the many passengers who did nothing to help the poor lady apart from one man.

Its a sign of how we are becoming, a society that looks the other way, often through fear or more to the point a fear of getting involved. I dont think there was any point in trying to reason with the man but offering to change seats with the lady would have been one solution. Many have said how wrong it was to move the lady but that was a good move for me, she needed to be taken away from the abuse being thrown at her but the real villain is not the airline or other passengers its a rather unpleasant, ignorant nasty, man who seemed totally unaware that he was doing or saying anything wrong.

Cheap flights are cheap flights.. great for keeping costs down


The crew on the plane and management at home needs to look at this and change how they react.

Some American airline a short while ago had similar treating customer awfully bad.

Hi Syd. Maybe I shouldn’t be posting after having too many but I stopped flying with that arsehole O’Leary about 7 years ago. I’d rather walk.

I’ve got lots of issues with that video which I don’t need to go into because I know you lot will agree with me.

My take (of several) was that young lad worked for a shit employer that dos’nt give a can of cold piss about anybody than himself and the bottom line.  He seemed a nice lad who either didn’t have proper training or probably told don’t hold things up as it’ll cost us money and you can find another job.

I suppose what I’m trying to say is if that .... had spoken to the lady (regardless of elderly, Black, female, or whatever) then the young lad, you me, and most people would have punched his f*cking lights out.
 I don’t think the prick would have said a word sat next to somebody that might respond. I liked her daughter btw, she had a go.

Memo to myself don’t post when drunk.  Great win btw see you soon in the prem Wink
