Ryanair crew left to sleep on airport floor without food or drinks, union says

A Ryanair crew was forced to sleep on the floor of an airport office, according to a cabin crew union, The BBC and the Irish Times report.

In a photo shared by Facebook group Ryanair MUST Change Sunday, six people in Ryanair uniforms are seen laying on a floor.

The photo’s caption reads: “This is Porto crew last night stranded on the floor of Malaga crew room. They were diverted due to the storm and the company left them there.”

In a follow-up post to the page Monday, Portuguese airline union SNPVAC clarified what the photo represented.

In the statement, the union says 24 crew members (8 pilots and 16 cabin crew) from four flights were diverted to Malaga airport due to tropical storm Leslie.

“The 24 crew members were there since (1:30 a.m.) until 06:00 (local time) without access to food, drinks and even a place to sit down, as there were only 8 seats available for the 24 crew,” the statement read, adding they had “no other choice” than to attempt to rest on the floor.
