Ryanair has sacked the six staff members who slept on an office floor, when an onward flight was diverted. The company said staff had posted images on social media and had committed gross misconduct. Ryanair CEO, Michael O’Leary is said to be fuming at the lost opportunity to charge customers to sleep on the floor and immediatley announced two new paid-for services for Ryanair flights based on the incident.
‘Passengers who pay a £10 surcharge can stand for their flights,’ he said, confiming the award of a new contract to retrofit London Underground hanging strops in the main cabin area. ‘For a £20 surcharge they can sleep on the floor in the same cabin, but will not be allowed carry-ons like pillows – they’ll cost extra,’ he said.
All other passengers will need to avail themselves of the new outside seating being introduced.
