Ryanair passengers refuse to board after ‘extreme’ turbulence

Published on : Tuesday, February 28, 2017

Ryanair flightRyanair flight from Madrid was forced to abort its landing at Dublin Airport as 100kmh winds swept across Ireland. The terrified passengers vomited with fear when the plane faced major turbulence and was shaken by Storm Ewan.


One of the passengers said that it was an extremely turbulent flight and there were people vomiting and absolutely terrified. The flight suffered severe turbulence towards the end of its journey and many of the passengers were in a distressed state when the plane pulled out of its landing approach at Dublin.


Although the pilot attempted to touch down, he could not. After the crew had been advised it would be the sixth aircraft in a queue to land, they opted to divert to Shannon instead. The passengers claimed that the staff on Ryanair flight FR-7257 did not allow them off the plane for up to six hours even though parents told them they did not want to fly back to Dublin with kids who were left terrified by the ordeal.


But the ordeal was so fearsome that more than 20 to 25 people refused to get back on the plane.


The passengers were told after the plane landed at Shannon that they would not be allowed off for up to six hours to get their luggage, as there were no ground handling staff. Angry customers claimed not enough was done to facilitate them especially after so many were sick and were left shaken by the ordeal.


About 25 people were deplaned at Shannon while others opted to remain on board and continue to Dublin. The plane eventually took off. A Ryanair spokeswoman said that this flight from Madrid to Dublin diverted to Shannon due to high winds at Dublin Airport.
