Spain stands-up to Ryanair

SPANISH courts have ruled against the budget airline’s policy of ‘fining’ passengers for not printing their boarding passes.

A judge said aviation law states airlines must issue boarding passes and that the fine was ‘abusive.’

The case was brought by Dan Miro Garcia, a Spanish lawyer who was charged 40 euros for a boarding pass in May 2010.

Ryanair, who have imposed the fine in the UK, is to appeal against the ruling.


  1. If only that Spanish Judge would spend as much time looking into the way that Builders/Developers/Banks shaft potential property buyers, depriving them of thousands in lost deposits, rather than worry about the 40 euro that RyanAir charge when someone can’t be bothered to print off a boarding pass.

  2. Not a very bright lawyer if he didn’t know he had to print off his boarding card! But I also agree with the sentiment of Antony, O’Leary is a bad loser so watch this space for a petty response!
