Ryanair Criticized After Brussels Attacks

In the wake of two terrorist attacks at Brussels Airport (BRU) and Maelbeek metro station Tuesday, low-cost carrier Ryanair is being criticized for reportedly charging a group of passengers £6,000 for flights home.

According to The Independent, when the 28 flyers allegedly requested to alter their flight to Manchester, “they were asked to pay a £60 charge to change their flights plus an upgrade of £154 each to match the available fare on the new flights” because there were only 28 seats left. The group declined the offer.

154+60= 214, and it's a group of 28 people so 214 x 28=5992 which is almost 6000

Im what universe is GBP 154+ GBP 60 = GBP 6000? It's either misleading bordering on libel or beyond stupid. Don't like change fees? Don't change your flights or buy flexible tix. GBP 60 for a change is in no way unreasonable.

One more reason, for me, never to use this airline. Love the PR department. How to "Win friends and influence people."
