Viral Photo of Flight Crew Sleeping On The Ground Proven To Be A Fake By CCTV Footage


An image of a Ryanair flight stranded in Malaga, Spain all purportedly sleeping on the floor because Ryanair wouldn't or couldn't make proper sleeping arrangements went viral earlier this week sparking outrage.  






The claim is that the six flight attendants had been stranded in the Malaga, Spanish after their flight to Porto, Portugal was diverted because Hurricane Leslie made impact in Porto. 


The Chief Operations Officer at Ryannair had this to say on Twitter:



That, as expected, led to more and more outrage. It's estimated that there are over 500 hotels and approximately 85,000 hotel rooms in Malaga, which made Peter Bellew's explanation seem even more disingenuous.


The matter was starting to largely recede from the public's mind when today Ryanair shot back with CCTV footage of the crew clearly staging the photo of them laying on the ground. Watch for yourself:
