100 Passengers Kicked off Ryanair Plane After Baggage Dispute

Passengers boarding a Ryanair flight from Lanzarote in the Canary Islands to Charleroi, Belgium (or as Ryanair calls it, Istanbul),  got into a significant disagreement with airline staff after they tried to charge one person in a large group an extra fee for heavy baggage.

The passengers friends reportedly rebelled and would neither pay for the extra baggage nor listen to any crew members.  Ryanair staff called police and after sorting out the ruckus, decided that 104 passengers could not re-board the plane.   That group spent an additional (drunken, I would assume) night on the island.
