Passenger mutiny on Ryanair flight after extra baggage charge


There was a passenger mutiny aboard a Ryanair plane in Lanzarote in the Canary Islands after Ryanair tried to charge one passenger extra for carry on luggage.

The flight bound for Belgium was canceled and over one hundred passengers removed after the pilot radioed for assistance when friends of the passenger “became disruptive and refused to comply with crew instructions.”

Police were called but “following further disruptive behaviour, the police required for security reasons that this entire group be refused travel,” the statement from the Irish airline said.

The flight was later allowed to depart but only 64 of the 168 passengers were allowed back on and the rest had to stay in Lanzarote.

The airline stated that that police had required the entire aircraft be offloaded and each passenger identified.
