  • Somehow, I think we're not getting the full story here.

    Anyway, Ryanair are attempting to be "MoneySaving" - exchanging a half eaten sandwich for a muffin is hardly moneysaving!
    From Poland...with love.

    They are (they're)
    sitting on the floor.
    Their
    books are lying on the floor.
    The books are sitting just there on the floor.

    But if we did have the full story it would not make for the sensationalist twaddle that has been written here! ;)
    Gone ... or have I?

    Wouldn't be so interesting to read then, I suppose ;)

    Man arrested after being abusive to Ryanair staff just wouldn't make a good story, I suppose ;)

    Thought I'd say that having spoken to the man involved, he sounded like a very polite man and not one who would be abusive, in his defence.

    He also wants to continue to fly Ryanair and was very complimentary about the staff, other than this one stewardess.

    And having eaten a Ryanair (and easyjet) sandwich, myself, I can see his point.

    This geezer flew from Berlin.

    If he can find an M&S there I'll pay for his butty myself.
    Oh come on, don't be silly.

    It's the internet
    - it's not real!

    From the MSE article:
    If a restaurant or any other establishment threatens to call the police you can pay but state you're paying 'under protest' and then you can dispute the cost later and make a claim
    This is absolute rubbish. If a restaurant or any other establishment threatens to call the police you should wait for them and make it quite clear that you are involved in a civil dispute. Pay a very small token amount for any food not in dispute and provide the restaurant with your address so that THEY can make a claim against YOU.

    Budget airlines employ bullies - they get a powertrip as a perk to compensate for their lousy pay.
