A COUPLE from Bristol claim they were left disgusted after they found that their seats on a Ryanair flight were covered in dry vomit.
Sheila and Fred McInerney were flying to Bristol from their home in Alicante to see Aston Villa play Bristol City on September 28.
But when they got on the plane they claim they found the dried sick on their seats as well as on their seatbelts – which they say the airline refused to clean up.
The couple said that flight attendants said they wouldn’t be able to clean up as it would delay the plane taking off.
Son Stephen told Bristol Live: “When they got to their seats that’s what they saw.
“It was quite obvious someone had been sick. They asked the cabin crew for it to be cleaned but the man said that would delay the flight.”
He continued: “His attitude was apparently disgruntled. The expectation seemed to be that they should just sit on it.”
The couple claim they were told that they were blocking the aisle and asked to move when they refused to sit on the vomit-covered seats.
They said that there was an empty row of by the emergency exit, but these were not offered to them.
Instead, another passenger was asked to move into the free seats, and they were then given his empty spot.
Stephen said that he thought his parents had been “treated like s***” by the airline and wanted to make people aware.
A rep for Ryanair told Sun Online Travel: “All Ryanair aircraft are thoroughly cleaned by professionals at the end of each day, in line with industry standards, and cabin crew carry out a cabin tidy and toilet check at the end of every flight, during turnaround.
“In this instance, the customers in question were moved to other seats and cabin crew cleaned the area in question.”
We previously revealed that the airline is warning there could be even more strikes on the way.
