A Ryanair passenger has criticised the airline after she was subjected to homophobic abuse on one of its flights and the cabin crew did nothing to stop it.
Laura Muldoon was on board a flight from Stansted to Seville when a group of male passengers began hurling the vile abuse at her.
Laura took a photo of the men who she alleges made numerous abusive comments towards her.
She posted the image on Twitter with a description of some of the insults she was subjected to. She added the hashtags #holidayvibes #outofofficeon #rainontheplane.
The online response was one of support for Laura. Hundreds of people encouraged her not to let the upsetting experience spoil her holiday.
There was also a wave of criticism for the men involved, and also for Ryanair given their staff did nothing to prevent the abuse.
One user pointed out that the photo Laura had taken shows where the men were seated on the plane, so along with their pictures they should be easy to identify and prosecute.
Ryanair responded to Laura’s tweet by asking her to submit an official complaint so that they can investigate.
First holiday snap! Of this bunch of lads who chanted that I was a “miserable bitch”, “dyke” and “lesbo” (very well observed!) on @Ryanair flight 12.27 from Stansted to Seville today. Oh yeah, flight crew did nothing. #holidayvibes #outofofficeon #rainontheplane pic.twitter.com/3ZW3zWm1A0
