Passengers heading to Manchester Airport were gasped when a Ryanair steward made a startling claim about the company in an onboard announcement. Heads turned as those on the flight from Spain couldn’t believe what they were hearing, as the crew member began to complain about the low-cost airline.

The shocking moment was captured on video during a flight last Wednesday (June 8). The disgruntled crew member made his feelings for his employer very clear in a message telling holidaymakers they could file a complaint against the company.

He can be heard telling passengers that Ryanair “doesn’t listen to its staff” and doesn’t have “high expectations”. It comes as Ryanair cabin crew in Spain prepare to take industrial action later this month.

In the video, the steward can be heard saying to passengers: “I’m sorry. If you want to make a complaint, please do so – go to Ryanair.com.

“They don’t listen to their staff, they probably care more about you because you give them money. Instead, we cost them money.

Passengers gasped hearing what was said

“So give it a try, see how it goes. After four years, I literally – I don’t have high expectations for them, you know.”

A passenger on the flight said the worker appeared “stressed”. They said, “I had the feeling [the steward] was about to blow, and sure enough, a few minutes later he made the announcement.

“To be honest, I felt really sorry for him, he seemed really stressed.” Ryanair operates from over 20 airports in Spain.

It was reported earlier this week that cabin crew working for Ryanair in Spain had voted to hold a six-day strike in late June and early July. Spanish staff from the USO and SITCPLA unions will go on two three-day strikes from June 24-26 and June 30-July 2.

Ryanair declined to comment on the video.
