If you’re enjoying your honeymoon, sparkling wedding rings and getting ready for what will hopefully be the romantic trip of a lifetime, then you don’t necessarily expect to receive a harsh response on your website. social network.
But a couple found themselves in the sights of Ryanair’s Twitter account after complaining about the lack of windows in the window seats.
Mark Bowe, a meteorologist based in Dublin, tweeted a photo of himself and his wife from inside a plane to Ibiza, with the caption: “Honeymoon and about to fly went to #Ibiza for the first time and we couldn’t wait to see the view along the way…”
He added “oh… wait…”, as the picture clearly shows there are no windows next to that row.
In its often cheeky reply, the low-cost airline cited the message on Twitter and replied, “She regrets marrying someone who can’t read fine print.”
The gentle response has been viewed more than seven million times and Ryanair has continued to respond to the comments.
One user wrote “LOOOOOOOOL admin Ryanair your days are numbered”, the airline replied: “Like this marriage.”
Another joked that it was “great” that Mr Bowe gave his new wife a nonexistent window seat, with Ryanair suggesting that maybe “he knows what he’s doing”.
The good-natured troll even extended to Ryanair’s Twitter bio, which now reads: “We sell seats, not windows.”
Since then, Mr Bowe has tweeted to say “I have to say being retweeted by Ryanair is a bit of a tick in life.”
I said independence: “I love Ryanair and always go with them. The staff are always so great. We just think all the times that you don’t get a window seat are during your honeymoon. Neither of us had been to Ibiza before and were also looking forward to checking the light on the way in.
“We had a good laugh reading all the comments by the pool on our first day here.”
Irish Airlines has a history of teasing social media users with its outspoken humour, especially about complaints.
In March, they teased a passenger on Twitter who appeared to be complaining about the limited legroom on his flight. Other examples include taunting a passenger complaining about check-in rules – at the time they said “being an adult is hard” – and Dublin Airport about their queues.
