I am so sorry for you Ryanair!!! The reason they insulted you were irrational. I mean, one was insulted for holding a Singapore passport?
Several questions popped up pertaining to the prosecution:
- Can an airline be blamed for bringing a passenger whom later on caught for being an asylum seeker? I mean, at the time he performed the journey, he must have had a valid travelling documents and such, and pay whatever amount the ticket costs.
- Has any airline ever refuse a potential passenger just because they thought the passenger is an asylum seeker?
- How would an airline differentiate a normal passenger with a passenger who later on turned out to be an asylum seeker?
The thread starter mentioned "allowing Illegal passengers into New Zealand". I am not cleared about this as the link provided is not the link to the specific news. Does it mean MH
flew in passengers without any valid travelling document who later on turned out to be an asylum seeker in New Zealand? MH
One more thing, all passengers are subject to immigration clearance and such. Does it mean, the asylum seeker passengers were caught during this procedure at the airport before entering the country, or the asylum seeker passengers were caught after they cleared immigration and left the airport? If it was the latter, why wouldn't the immigration department be blamed for releasing the passengers?
