Ryanair has responded online to multiple reports this week that cabin crew were forced to sleep on a crew room floor in Malaga.
A photograph did the rounds which showed six members of staff lying on the ground after Storm Leslie left them stranded at Malaga Airport.
The airline has now hit back by posting a video on Twitter which appears to be CCTV footage taken in the crew room in question. The clip includes the caption ‘Ryanair exposes fake photo of cabin crew sleeping in crew room.’
Viewers can see the crew members lying down for a few seconds before getting up again.

The post comes after Ryanair released a statement which said ‘Unfortunately all hotels were completely booked out in Malaga. The storm created huge damage in Portugal. Later after this the crew moved to VIP lounge. Apologies to the crew we could not find accommodation.’
Comments underneath the video include ‘You have to ask yourselves why they feel the need to do this? Stop ignoring your problems,’ and ‘Who runs your social media? Whoever it is needs to learn how to handle things far more professionally.’
