Passengers on board a plane headed to London this week were ordered to evacuate by French authorities after it was revealed that the carrier was paying a significant amount of money from 201
Ryanair Boeing 737 was shot and all 149 Passengers were told to return and return to Bordeaux-Merignac airport in western France.
Travelers were abandoned for most of the trial, with only two text messages saying that the departure was delayed and that they would receive coupons worth about $ 6 for food. A passenger told The Associated Press that the airport authorities told them that "there was a problem with the plane."
In reality, the Ryanair aircraft was seized due to overdue bills.
Ryanair was shown for some time to repay funds that the EU had declared illegal subsidies.
The spokesman for the French aviation service, Eric Heraud, said that regional authorities that originally donated to the carrier had tried since 2014 to recover the money. A final warning was sent in May, but after six months without a response from Ryanair it was time to shop.
The plane was first released after Ryanair paid an expense of $ 610,000.
The budget airline is known in Europe for its cheap airline tickets, obtained with additional fares, including food and transportation that is larger than a purse.
Passengers from the Thursday Canal were put on another flight, which eventually took them to their destination at London Stansted Airport – five hours late.
