Six crew members who staged a photo showing them lying on a Spanish Airport floor have been sacked by Ryanair.

The photo which became a viral hit babk in early October apparently showed the group of six lying on a staffroom floor at Malaga Airport after they claimed that they had no food, drink or anywhere to sleep.

The photo which prompted Ryanair to issue a immediate response was deemed to be staged, after the company reviewed CCTV footage showing the crew posing for the photograph which was uploaded to social media.

In a brief statement Ryanair said the incident was behaviour which damaged their employer’s reputation and caused “irreparable” breach of trust with the six staff members.
