Ryanair reportedly charged €90 extra to take two cupcakes on board their flight home from Spain.
The move prompted the Balearic government to call an urgent meeting with the Irish airline after their questionable rules came to light, reports The Mirror.
The incident happened at Palma de Mallorca airport when the two were trying to take ensaimada, a traditional Mallorcan pastry, in their hand luggage.
President of the Balearic Islands pastry-makers association, Pep Magraner said: “All the other airlines allow passengers to take two ensaïmadas on board. It’s only a problem with Ryanair, but we’re talking about a lot of flights, especially to the Spanish mainland, which is the destination of most of the ensaïmadas,” reports The Mirror.
“Més has sent a letter to Aena and Ryanair to allow Mallorcan products bought outside the airport to be carried without restrictions or extra costs for tourists, because the aim is to defend Mallorcan products made in Mallorcan bakeries and pastry shops,” Mallorcan politician Jaume Alzamora said, reports The Mirror.
