Ryanair refuse to fly organ transplant child after family arrive too late
As someone who is waiting for an organ transplant I find that just unconscionable. If there was time to call Ryanair HQ then there was time to get them on the plane.
Luckily there was another carrier leaving soon after, also likely transplant organs either staid in the body an extra two hours (many organs come from brain dead people which allows the hospital to maintain life support until near surgery) or were iced down (in the case of a dead donor) and were ready when they arrived.
I would need more information to pass judgement on this. I assume there was still plenty of "real" time before departure? The flight leaves at 4:50pm, did they arrive at the ticket counter at 4:49pm or was it more like 4pm? Was there more at play like the flight was sold out? I'm just saying.
I looks like that Ryanair was inflexible, they should've shown common sense, especially in such an urgent case.
I totally agree. I'm just saying that without more information and hearing this second hand it's hard to tell if they are the jerks we think or if there is more to the story.
Sadly, Ryanair didn't provide any answers to the questions ask regarding this case.
I get that LCC have a lot of gotcha's, but if there was ever a reason to go outside the box this was it!
