BUDGET airline Ryanair has banned duty-free booze from its British flights to Ibiza in an effort to quell bad behaviour on board. The move is an extension to a ban introduced on the Glasgow Prestwick-Ibiza route back in April.
In a message sent to passengers, the Irish company said that hand luggage would be searched at the gate, and that bottles purchased in duty-free before boarding must be wrapped up and placed in a suitable cabin bag which would then be placed in the aircraft’s hold.
The company also warned: “Boarding gates will be carefully monitored and customers showing any signs of anti-social behaviour or attempting to conceal alcohol will be denied travel without refund or compensation.”

      I have had some horrendous flights with ‘over boozed’ passengers on Ryanair over the last two years. On the last occasion, I felt that we were all in serious danger. The staff seemed more interested in selling booze to passengers, and increasing their profits, than retaining some form of order and safety on board. I would never fly with Ryanair again.
