Shocking Airline Staff Forced to Spend Night in an Airport with NO Food or Drink

A picture has emerged showing Ryanair cabin crew lying on an airport office floor after becoming stranded by bad weather.

The image was staged by six crew members in protest at their treatment at Malaga Airport in Spain in the early hours of Sunday morning.

They were part of a group of eight pilots and 16 cabin crew based in Portugal who claim they were forced to spend several hours in the room, which had just eight chairs. They had no access to food or drink and no hotel accommodation was arranged.

They had landed just after midnight, having been diverted from various departure points because of Hurricane Leslie. They were discovered around 6am by crews based in Malaga, who arranged for a VIP lounge to be opened up for them.

  1. They were 24 crew stuck in Malaga from Porto. Even the crew themselves were ringing multiple hotels to find accommodation. To find 24 seperate rooms at such short notice is obviously difficult. The picture was also staged as when I arrived at work early that morning crew were sat on the chairs and sofas in the crew room. Their aircraft were also on a remote stand and inaccessible from the crew room so there wouldn’t of been any possibility going to the aircraft to heat up sandwiches or open the bars anyway. After years in Malaga i can tell you that hotels are always full whenever there is a holiday. Plus there was a big yearly fair in Fuengirola that would’ve filled up hotels in towns close by the airport.
