Ryanair refuse to compensate travellers22 April 2010
Passengers have been warned they will not be compensated after being stranded by the ash cloud.
Ryanair boss Michael O’Leary has insisted his airline will defy compensation rules for stranded passengers.
The budget airline warned passengers it will not be held liable for their extra hotel and restaurant bills after they were stranded due to the ash cloud.
Mr O’Leary said customers will be refunded their original ticket price but no more, a refusal to abide by EU consumer rules.
The airline boss met authorities in Dublin and says he will see Ireland’s Commission for Aviation Regulation in court rather than pay.
