People who forget to print their boarding pass before their Ryanair flight should expect to hand over their firstborn, according the budget airline.
After a flurry of complaints on social media after a London couple were forced to hand over their eldest child due to forgetting to print off their board passes, the budget airline has defended its policy.
A spokesperson told us, “All passengers travelling with Ryanair agree to check-in online before arriving at their departure airport, and all passengers are sent an email/SMS, reminding them to do so 24hrs before departure.
“We regret that these passengers ignored their email reminder and failed to check in online and print their boarding passes. As such their first born child will enter a life of servitude under the Ryanair executive, and their entire existence from this moment forward will be dedicated to bringing you the cheapest flights on the planet.
“Some people might not like our policies, but putting these children into indentured servitude enables us to make your return flight to Budapest approximately one Euro cheaper. Which I’m sure you’ll all agree is WELL worth it.”
Meanwhile, the family has promised never to fly with Ryanair again. Unless it’s the cheapest option for a flight to whichever budget holiday destination they choose next year.
