歐洲最大廉航公司瑞安航空(Ryanair)6名機組人員,早前上傳一張在西班牙馬拉加機場地板睡覺的照片,引起輿論質疑瑞安航空是否有刻薄員工待遇問題。

然而,瑞安航空近日發聲明,指有關照片是這批員工擺拍,現時已解僱有關員工。

早前報道指,這批員工因風暴來襲被迫滯留當地,然而瑞安航空卻未有為他們安排住宿,導致他們被迫睡於機場地板。

照片熱傳後,瑞安航空發聲明,指有關照片是這6名員工擺拍,並在社交網站上傳機場閉路電視影片佐證,直指這批員工嚴重損害公司形象,公司日後已難再信任他們,故將這6人解僱。

聲明又強調,當日因是西班牙公眾假期關係,馬拉加所有酒店已被預訂,故公司已著他們先行在員工休息室中逗留片刻,再轉至機場頭等候機室中休息,並在第二天返回位於葡萄牙波圖的基地,其間公司未有指派他們做任何工作。

葡萄牙全國民航人員工會回應事件,批評瑞安航空處理手法不當,稱照片僅是反映對公司管治手法不滿,透露工會法律團隊已介入處理。

工會又批評,機組人員在轉至頭等候機室前,被迫在員工休息室內逗留4個多小時,而房內沒有提供任何休息設施,故堅持認為瑞安航空應提供適當住宿。

瑞安航空員工待遇一直為人詬病。今年8月,瑞安航空爆發大規模工潮,全歐洲超過300班航班取消。

工會當時表示,工潮緣於機師工會要求改善薪金待遇,及不滿航空公司在沒通知情況下,擅自調動機師往不同基地所致。

工會領袖強調機師不是牧民,希望借工潮讓資方妥協,並讓雙方重返談判桌。

Ryanair has fired six employees after they staged a photo of themselves sleeping on the floor of an airport in Spain, according to multiple reports.

The Guardian reports that a collection of Ryanair flights was grounded in the Malaga Airport in Spain on October 13 because of storms in the Portuguese city of Porto.

CNN reports that security cameras in the airport took footage that showed a number of crew members staging the photo, as they voluntarily got into sleeping position, but once a photo was taken, they got up and started walking around again.

In a statement to Business Insider, Ryanair confirmed that six cabin crew members in Porto were dismissed on November 5, 「for breach of contract on grounds of gross misconduct, after staging a fake photograph to support a false claim.」

Ryanair has fired six employees after they staged a photo of themselves sleeping on the floor of an airport in Spain, according to multiple reports.

The Guardian reports that a collection of Ryanair flights was grounded in the Malaga Airport in Spain on October 13 because of storms in the Portuguese city of Porto.

The Irish Times reports a group of eight pilots and 16 cabin crew members who arrived at the airport shortly after midnight had to spend several hours at the airport, and that the delay was caused by Hurricane Leslie. The Irish Times reports that the Ryanair employees had to spend 「the night in the crew room at the airport」 after being unable to book a hotel room in the Malaga region.

According to CNN, on October 14, a photograph started surfacing of the employees sleeping on the floor.

CNN reports that security cameras in the airport took footage that showed a number of crew members staging the photo, as they voluntarily got into sleeping position, but once a photo was taken, they got up and started walking around again.

In a statement to Business Insider, Ryanair confirmed that six cabin crew members in Porto were dismissed on Monday, November 5, 「for breach of contract on grounds of gross misconduct, after staging a fake photograph to support a false claim (widely reported in international media outlets) that they were 『forced to sleep on the floor』 of the Malaga crew room, which was behaviour which damaged their employer’s reputation and caused an irreparable breach of trust with these 6 persons.」

But according to a statement in October from the Portuguese Union SNPVAC that was published by CNN, 「The stranded Crew, in a gesture of protest, took a photo that immediately became viral: Laying on the floor was the only option to rest; their 『suitable accommodation.’」

Ryanair has pushed back on this characterization. While Ryanair told Business Insider they had nothing to add from their original statement, CNNreportsRyanair has said the staffers only spent a short time in the crew room before being moved to a VIP lounge and that 「hotels were fully booked」 because of a national holiday.

A social media user posted the photo of the group of flight attendants posing in the sleeping position.
