Ryanair under pressure to stop selling ‘stowaway’ seats


Ryanair’s new stowaway package, which costs extra for oxygen, has been criticised after a fatality.

Ryanair Spokesman, Peter Thape defended the airline’s decision to charge stowaways for a blanket, even though the temperature is -60C in the hold.

Thape added that legroom, and seat belts in that part of the undercarriage would also be an extra.

‘There’s not quite enough space once the wheels come up, which is why it’s discounted,’ said Thape.

‘If you book early enough, it’s good value,’ added Thape.
