A SICK child in need of a double transplant was refused on to a Ryanair flight after his family arrived too close to takeoff.ryanair

An emergency liver and kidney transplant was found for the boy but he and his family could not fly from their home in Gran Canaria to Madrid due to tickets not being purchased far enough in advance.

The family ended up flying with Air Europa an hour and a half later while Madrid’s La Paz hospital’s transplant team endured ‘hours of anguish.’

  1. The first sentence in this article probably explains it more clearly. They may have bought the tickets in time but for one reason or another failed to make the gate before it closed.
    Unfortunately, time, tide and Ryanair await no man
