Ryanair ban booze on flight

7 April 2015

Bitterwallet - Ryanair new plane livery A booze ban on flights?! Are Ryanair out of their minds?! Well, the sanity of Ryanair is another debate, but don't get your knickers in a twist, boozehounds.

Ryanair has banned passengers from taking duty-free booze onboard its Prestwick-Ibiza flights after a load of incidents with drunk people from Glasgow, going for a lovely rave.

Some of you will know that this particular night flight has become infamous for boozy behaviour. One such journey in 2013 saw the flight diverted to Paris, throwing off 14 blokes because they were so badly behaved. They were so smashed, that they thought they were in Ibiza anyway.

Don't you habitual alcoholics worry though - you'll still be able to have a liver's worth of G&T or a shed of wine, provided you're not flying from Glasgow to Ibiza, as it is the only flight where this is being enforced.

Passengers will be searched at the boarding gate and any duty-free items will be put in the hold. A memo to passengers warns: “Customers attempting to conceal alcohol will be denied travel without refund or compensation.”
