    Angry Ryanair passenger eats his winning scratchcard

    Angry Ryanair passenger eats his winning scratchcard


    Prizes worth 300,000 have been won in the past two years

    A Ryanair passenger who became enraged when he was told he could not claim a scratchcard prize on his flight ate his winning ticket.

    The man was flying from Poland to the East Midlands on a Ryanair flight when he won 10,000 euros (8,765) on a scratchcard he had purchased on board.

    Ryanair confirmed he ate his ticket on 26 February after cabin staff refused to pay him the winnings immediately.

    The airline said it could not reveal the winner's identity.

    Ryanair spokesman Stephen McNamara said the cabin crew and some passengers urged the man not to eat the ticket, but he stood up and ate it anyway.

    Charity windfall

    He said it appears the passenger acted out of frustration and anger.

    Mr McNamara explained that all winners must be verified before the cash prizes are handed out.

    He said the airline crew did not have the cash "kicking around the aircraft" and in any case the prize had to be collected directly from the scratchcard company.

    "In the last two years Ryanair's scratchcards have given away 10 cars, more than 300,000 in cash prizes and more than 100,000 flight vouchers," he said.

    Since the prize will now go unclaimed, the money will be donated to charity, he added.

    The winning charity will be chosen from a list of five charities in a web vote.

    Since when can you/do you have to buy scratch cards on Ryanair? The mind boggles.

    Yes, shame that. 10K would have covered his Ryanair seat allocation charge, toilet charge, overhead locker charge, height charge, weight charge....

    I suggest that he had previously indulged in a heavy alcohol and narcotics binge and is now waking up to go out and find some more..pronto..

    Or of course he is a fooking fruitcake..

    One of the two.

    Low budget airlines, nothing to eat than a small pack of peanuts.

    Wonder why people get mad.

    Unfair statement -- I think people that buy budget tickets should know what to expect, and if needed, compensate appropriately. I don't expect top class service when I fly budget.

    In the States, there's JetBlue, or SouthWest, for example -- which do not server inflight meals, so I buy a sandwich to take on the flight with me, if the flight is over 1-2 hours. In Thailand, flying AirAsia, I don't expect the flights to be on time, or similarly luxuries - in return, I also expect to pay significantly less for the fares.

    Tit for tat.
