RYANAIR should get a map after directing not one, but TWO Spain-bound British families onto the wrong plane.
Instead of jetting off to sunny Almeria, both families boarded separately at East Midlands Airport bound for Latvia.
They were lucky to exit the plane before take off, but the airline’s blunder did cause them to miss their actual flight.
The Pritchards and Housleys then forked out £70 (€89) to share a taxi to Birmingham airport, where they caught a different flight.
Their flight plight did not end there. The plane took them to Murcia, some 107 miles from Almeria.
After a whopping £130 (€165) taxi ride – the families finally reached their holiday destination.
So much for a relaxing break…
