47 teenagers were forced into a 22 hour journey from London to Galway (in Ireland, for those of us in the US) after Ryanair staff refused to let them board because they arrived at the departure gate for their flight 2 minutes late. Oh, they were late because their connecting flight on Ryanair from Denmark was 5 hours late.
The airline offered to let the students fly standby for 50 Euro each, but (wisely) the parents with them on the trip didn’t want to do that because it would’ve meant splitting up the group. So, they took a bus to a ferry and 22 hours later arrived home. Because they were 2 minutes late for a flight. A delay caused by the airline. Nice!
