Passengers on Ryanair, the World’s most hated airline, are apparently paying a £10 surcharge in order to avoid being blown out of the sky by RAF fighter jets, according to a report by The Daily Mash today.
The hilarious article states that “RAF fighter jets are being scrambled on a regular basis as part of a Ryanair scheme to make passengers pay a £10 surcharge not to be killed.”
They quote a “passenger”, Bill McKay, who took a Ryanair flight from Stansted to an airport about 200 miles from Rome, and who said: “About 10 minutes after take off, the pilot and his crew appeared in the aisle wearing parachutes and told us that if we did not cough up ten quid each an RAF Typhoon jet would fire something called an AMRAAM missile at us.
“There was a burst of laughter, but then the atmosphere changed as you could see people thinking to themselves, ‘fuck me, this is Ryanair’.
“The pilot then told us to look out of the right hand side where we would see Flight Lieutenant Julian Cook from 3F Squadron at RAF Coningsby.
“Sure enough there he was, flying alongside. He waved at us very cheerfully and then dragged his finger across his throat. And then he waved again.”
