Re: Ryanair rejects passengers in wheelchair

Yes, thats what we may assume, and the actualy (non)flight isnt so much the issue for the people involved, it seems. Personal in situ (at place) seemed to have tried everything in their current reach.

Re: Ryanair rejects passengers in wheelchair

This could be reread, I think, in the first part of this thread. I'll give you a one sentence answer: Apparently there was no concrete communication between them. Ryanair didnt know they were 7, nor that there were less than 7 escorts; nor did they thought to mention it. Absurdly, Ryanair would have...

Re: Ryanair rejects passengers in wheelchair

@mjoelnir, the point is that neither side has clarified. Ryanair hadn't known prior the check-in the amount, it was apparently 1+n. When they were in fact checking-in, they would have deny.

@lufti, thanks, right on, it's EU regulations.
