Ryanair sacks cabin crew pictured ‘sleeping on airport floor’

Budget airline Ryanair has confirmed in a statement to Euronews this morning that it has sacked six cabin crew involved in “staging a fake photo” of them sleeping on the floor of a Spanish airport last month.

The picture in question was widely circulated on social media last month and was said to show six Portugal-based cabin crew members “sleeping” on the floor in a room at Malaga airport after Storm Leslie disrupted flights.

“All six cabin crew members were dismissed for breach of contract on grounds of gross misconduct,” the airline said in the statement.
