Passenger chose the most insane way of getting a refund!
Watch Our video Of The Week
After a passenger grabbed the plane’s intercom and began singing loudly at the other passengers, passengers on a Ryanair flight demanded a refund.
When you’re already waiting for a Ryanair flight to take off, it’s hardly the kind of in-flight entertainment you would desire.
There isn’t much to do on a Ryanair flight, so perhaps a disruptive customer is the most interesting thing you’re going to witness, they wouldn’t mind me saying.
Truth be told you’d probably just want to get going and finish the whole thing, am I right?
Anyway, this flight was bringing people from Dublin to the French pilgrimage destination of Lourdes, but even St. Bernadette’s patience might have been tested by this guy and his musical performance. Lourdes is famous for being the place where Our Lady appeared to St. Bernadette.
The man, who appeared to have consumed some alcohol, grabbed the intercom and began rattling through Johnny Logan’s “Hold Me Now.”
The Irish Eurovision winner, who is the only guy to have won the prestigious song competition twice, has a legendary song, but this wasn’t a performance to remember.
Others weren’t as amused, while some seemed to find the whole affair humorous and some even joined in with the singing.
One passenger – a bloke called Pete Farrell – really wasn’t enjoying the pre-flight karaoke, tweeting: “I know you are not famous for your in flight entertainment but this is taking the p***,
“Me and the kids would like our money back please.”
The passenger kissed the cheek of a flight attendant after saying “see you later” to the captive audience at the end of his performance.
After the fact, Farrell told Dublin Live: “I run a little church group (not cool I know) and was taking over a few of the kids to see the [sanctuary of Lourdes] shrine.
“Group of men arrived at the gate, they were mannered to start but proceeded to get more and more drunk.
“Not the worst thing in the world but certainly tested our patience.
“They certainly weren’t going on a pilgrimage anyway!”
The man’s turn has generated conflicting opinions ever since the footage was uploaded on social media.
“This was a hijacking,” said one.
“Unless that’s the real Johnny Logan I’d be asking for my money back.”
The real Johnny Logan probably doesn’t have to perform for free on aeroplanes, to be fair to him.
However, others reckon that people need to ‘lighten up’.
“Painful, but he was only having a bit of a laugh,” said one.
“Get that a lad a drink. Some voice, hey,” joked another.
They weren’t watching someone crooned into a tiny microphone as they waited for a plane to take off, were they?
Ryanair Has Brutal Reaction After Man Proposes On Flight
We were NOT expecting that reaction!
It’s safe to say that there are some unique places for proposals on the internet.
There are many different ways to propose, from something discreet to staging a huge flash mob in front of someone’s entire extended family. Personally, I like making decisions with friends informally and then celebrating with pizza.
One man, however, chose to make a somewhat peculiar choice when he asked his partner to marry him.
On a Ryanair trip, Lee was travelling with his partner Leah and her family when he made the decision to propose to her.
On a plane does seem to be an odd place out of all the places. If they decline, you will be forced to sit next to them for the duration of the flight. That might be extremely awkward.
Personally, I don’t think of romance when flying, but who am I to stand in the way of true love?
Lee explained the unusual choice of location, saying: “We both love travelling so it made sense to do it like that seeing as it would be while doing something we love doing.”
Thankfully, Leah said yes, saving Lee and Leah from having to share an extremely uncomfortable flight.
He posted a picture of himself and his new fiancée sharing a cup of bubbly together on the flight to X (formerly known as Twitter).
It was accompanied by the caption: “Proposed to Leah on a @Ryanair flight with her family there. Luckily she said Yes!”
The delighted couple included the infamous budget airline in the tweet and received a response.
Ryanair has developed a notoriety for its scathing online comments made in jest with clients over its notorious supplemental fees.
And this time definitely did not let us down.
The airline quoted the couple’s photo on Twitter, but instead of wishing them luck, it seemed to humorously inquire if Leah needed assistance.
Ryanair wrote: “Leah, blink twice for random seat allocation.”
But as if that weren’t enough to make you want to curl back up in your cheap blue seat, someone commented in the comments by jokingly asking if champagne had been offered to the newlyweds.
They wrote: “No free champagne for the beautiful couple?”
One guess about the reply.
Ryanair wrote: “Are you new here.”
The airline also jokingly – at least I hope so – took notes for introducing a ‘proposal fee’.
All that remains is to say congratulations to Lee and Leah on the engagement!
Passengers Recall What Happened As Fellow Traveller Had Horrific Diarrhoea On Plane
The passengers had to endure quite the flight!
People on the airline remember what happened when a fellow passenger experienced terrible diarrhoea.
One unfortunate passenger on a Delta Airlines flight was forced to do a U-turn after experiencing a terrible case of the runs.
On September 1, the Airbus A350 was flying from Atlanta to Barcelona when all hell literally let loose, including the poor guy’s bowels. Look it over:
The man, whose identity is unknown, had tried to make it to the restroom stalls but had run out of time and had to do his business down the centre of the aisle of the craft.
If you’re reading this while drinking tea, I apologise.
“This is a biohazard issue,” the pilot said to air traffic control, recorded from LiveATC.com and shared on X, formerly Twitter.
“We’ve had a passenger who’s had diarrhoea all the way through the airplane, so they want us to come back to Atlanta.”
beyond a series of transfers involving both passengers and crew, Flight DL194 finally arrived in Barcelona at 5:10 p.m. the next day, eight hours beyond its scheduled arrival time, according to information from Flightradar24.
he airline has since issued a statement on the matter, explaining: “Delta Flight 194 from Atlanta to Barcelona returned to Atlanta following an onboard medical issue.”
“Our teams worked as quickly and safely as possible to thoroughly clean the airplane and get our customers to their final destination,” a Delta spokesperson said.
“We sincerely apologise to our customers for the delay and inconvenience to their travel plans.”
Unsurprisingly, footage of the awful incident making its way across social media depicting the cleanup aboard the aeroplane quickly became popular.
In the brief video, paper towels can be seen lining the aisle and attempting to remove the numerous dark sludge streaks.
What a beautiful image.
People who were unfortunate enough to be on the trip have now recounted just how it was around the time.
“Both my wife and I were on the flight,” wrote one Twitter user. “It was a mess.
“The pilots made the right decision to turn around. The ground crew ripped out the carpet and put new in. Considering the circumstances, the ground crew did a great job, along the attendants and the pilots.”
Another passenger who also drew the short straw said it was the worst smell imaginable.
“My partner was on that flight! It was pretty bad. It was dribbled down the aisle, smelled horrible,” they said.
“The vanilla scented disinfectant used on it only made it smell like vanilla s**t.
Well, it’s not like you can even crack a window open.
Airline Pilot Explains Where Your Poo Goes When You Flush It On A Plane
The pilot has more than 500,000 TikTok followers and 700,000 Instagram followers under the handle @flywithgarrett.
He often uploads content about his travels and interesting facts about planes.
The most recent query from one of Garrett’s followers was what occurs when people use the lavatory on an aeroplane.
And it’s safe to say that his response has left people in awe.
On TikTok, Garrett captions his post: “Ever curious where it goes when you’re on the aeroplane?”
He explains in the video that many people believe that when a plane’s toilet is emptied midflight, human fluids just “dump out” of the aircraft.
As Garrett explains, this is undoubtedly not the case: “When you’re on an aeroplane and you have to go, where does it go?
“Did you know that whenever you flush the toilet on the aircraft, it actually doesn’t dump out into the population down below?
“It goes through plumbing to the rear of the aircraft and the seal compartments where the ground crew at the destination will remove all that waste.
“On a 747 – on a long haul flight – toilets can be flushed over a thousand times, creating over 320 gallons of waste.”
He adds: “That’s a lot.”
The clip has been viewed a staggering 4.3 million times and thousands have taken to the comments to share their thoughts.
Shocked, one viewer responds: “Since I was a kid I used to think when over a sea the pilot flushes it out. Omg!”
“Yeah! I had to ask a flight attendant. Was really interesting,” another adds.
Tagging a friend, a third person says: “See, I told you they didn’t dump out.”
“I thought they dropped it in the ocean,” a fourth admits.
While another says: “I just haven’t thought about this like ever.”
Many others have taken to the comments to say they can’t believe people ever thought otherwise.
One TikToker questions: “Other actual people believe that it would get expelled from the aircraft to the population below? And if so, do these people vote?”
Another asks: “Wait… people actually think it dumps out below?
“So they think there’s poo falling out of the sky and it’s not the birds?”
“I still don’t get it that there are still people that believe aeroplanes just dump it,” a third viewer remarks.
