Four Ryanair crews spent a night on a building of a Spanish airfield bureau though food or drink, according to a cabin organisation union.

Twenty-four organisation members were stranded in Malaga airfield after their Porto-bound flights were diverted.

The SNPVAC union, that represents Portuguese airline crews, says a above print shows a conditions that organisation “had no choice” though to stay in.

Ryanair claims a design is “staged” and says “no organisation slept on a floor”.

“Due to storms in Porto a series of flights diverted to Malaga,” Ryanair pronounced in a statement. “As this was a Spanish inhabitant holiday, hotels were entirely booked.

“The organisation spent a brief duration of time in a organisation room before being changed to a VIP lounge, and returned to Porto a subsequent day.”

Ryanair also reliable that nothing of a organisation members who stayed in Malaga operated on a Porto flights.

‘No food or drink’

The kinship disagrees with Ryanair’s outline of events, claiming that organisation members were placed in a room between 01:30 and 06:00 “without smallest rest facilities”.

The kinship says that organisation members were left “without entrance to food, drinks and even a place to lay down, as there were usually 8 seats accessible for a [24-person] crew.

“They had no other choice, as a print illustrates, than to try to rest on a room’s floor.”

The kinship confirms that a staff were changed to a VIP loll during 06:00, though says organisation members were “still with no entrance to food or drinks”.

“It is a authorised shortcoming of a airline to yield suitable accommodation, namely a hotel room,” says a union, “so that organisation can perform their rest underneath a inhabitant and European authorised requirements, in sequence to be means to work a following avocation safely.

“SNPVAC will furnish a grave censure to all a applicable polite aviation authorities and we design an obligatory and strong involvement so that events like this won’t occur again.”

Ryanair has not commented on a union’s claims that staff were left though food or drink.

The airline came underneath glow after a print was common on amicable media, where it has been upvoted some-more than 68,000 times on Reddit.
