Passengers on board a delayed Ryanair flight were given a shock when a crew member announced they were not taking off from Glasgow due to ice on the wings and said ‘we don’t want to die.’
The shocking announcement was made on board the Dublin-bound flight which was delayed for around eight hours.
Passenger Ella Ryan was so surprised by the incident, she posted a video of the moment on social media.
‘This is what happens when you’ve been delayed almost 8 hours, everyone at a lost including staff ‘we don’t want to die’ absolute mayhem,’ she wrote on her Instagram page.
Ms Ryan said that delayed passengers were given various reasons for the holdup and claimed they were only given a £3.50 voucher.
‘I was on this flight yesterday, due to leave Glasgow Airport at 15.35 which ended up leaving at 23.35 after being on two different aircrafts,’ she told Joe.co.uk
She said that they had only received ‘one voucher to the value of £3.50 and were ‘continuously receiving inconsistent reasons for the delay,’ she revealed.
‘All hell was breaking loose when a member of staff made this outrageous announcement.’ she said.
Ms Ryan described how the disturbing message on the intercom ‘only fuelled the already anxious and angry passengers’.
The passengers, including some children, can be heard reacting in a mixture of shock and amusement at the surprising nature of the announcement.
‘We will be speaking to the crew member involved and apologise for the regrettable comment she made in the heat of the moment,’ Ryanair said in a short statement.
