I am sure many of you have heard about what happened earlier this week with a British Airways flight. If you haven’t yet, the pilots mistakenly took the plane to Edinburgh, Scotland instead of Dusseldorf, Germany, thanks to an incorrect flight plan that was loaded. Yeah, that isn’t a very nice thing to have happen for sure!
Social Media Gold: Ryanair Mocks British Airways and Gets Ripped Up in Return
Well, Ryanair thought they would have some fun about it so tweeted this out:

Yeah, pretty funny until you think about the fact that this is RYANAIR doing the trolling. You know the saying about glass houses and all! Well, there were plenty of Twitter users that were completely happy to throw some rocks back. Having been a recipient of some of Ryanair’s ridiculous flight handling this year myself, I could definitely have contributed as well (even worse for these folks). Here were some of my favorite responses:

I remember the time you dropped me in Vienna after telling me we were meant to be landing in Bratislava… The flight was meant to go to Budapest.

The whole thread is just hilarious! I am sure that it was even funnier for the British Airways social media team as they got to sit back and let Ryanair just get hammered in response!
