Ryanair, the World’s Most Hated Airline, are facing legal action by Italian consumer watchdog Codacons after passengers travelling from Denmark to Rome on Thursday reported receiving insect bites during their flight.
In a statement the organisation said it would be filing a complaint with the Rome prosecutor’s office and asking for compensation on behalf of the travellers.
Passengers had to receive medical treatment on arriving in the capital as a result of soreness and itching caused by the bites, thought to be the work of ticks. The plane was subsequently grounded and disinfested before resuming service on Friday morning.
Ryanair, keen to make a quick buck, are retrospectively charging passengers credit cards with a £5 tick bite surcharge. Blood sucking bastards.
