Ryanair Zadar passengers to sue airline

NEWS FLASH


A group of passengers from a Ryanair flight bound for Zadar, which made an emergency landing in Germany two weeks ago, are planning to collectively sue the airline for injuries sustained during the incident. Flight FR7312 from Dublin to Zadar was forced to land at Frankfurt’s Hahn Airport after a loss in cabin pressure lead to a sharp descent. Passengers on board were treated by a team of Red Cross paramedics at the German airport for ear pain, headaches and dizziness while a number of people were taken to a local hospital for treatment. Coleman Legal Partners, along with another law firm in Dublin, is consulting with up to thirty passengers who travelled on the flight. Some have been offered a refund by Ryanair on the cost of their ticket following the incident, as well as a free airfare for any future trips.

Dorica Osrečak, who was travelling home to Croatia from a holiday in Dublin, described a constant headache and sleepless nights as a result of the incident and now wants Ryanair to respond to her complaints. “It was the worst ten minutes of my life”, she said describing the incident as a “nightmare”. “I had a strong pain in my ears and a very strong headache. I still have the headache for over ten days now”, she added. Under the internationally agreed Montreal Convention, airlines like Ryanair are “liable for damage sustained in the case of death or bodily injury of a passenger upon condition that the accident which caused the death or injury took place on board”. However, if the airline can prove that it was not negligent or a third party outside the airline was the cause, Ryanair could escape liability.

    1. While accidents and incidents can and do happen, and while the German BFU and other authorities will certainly investigate the matter with due diligence, the contention point here seems to be FR's legendary high esteem for their customers' well-being.
