Ryanair Passenger Catches Baggage Handler On Video Stealing From Suitcase While Loading Plane

It’s bad enough when an airline loses your luggage, but it’s downright malicious when an airline employee blatantly steals the belongings it’s supposed to protect.

That’s what one Ryanair passenger caught a baggage handler doing before a flight from Ibiza to Madrid — and the whole incident is on video.

The video shows the employee attempting to be sly, sneaking his hand into the suitcase, pulling out a red speaker, and carefully pocketing it.

Fortunately, thanks to the eagle-eyed passenger, the employee was caught and forced to return the speaker to its rightful owner: a teenage boy visiting Madrid with his mother, who had gifted the speaker to the boy for his birthday.

The now-former Ryanair employee was especially bold, as it was only his third day on the job. He’s presumably been fired and is now expected to face trial.

Some people on Twitter are using the instance to caution travelers.

Some are blaming Ryanair.

Fortunately, the speaker was recovered, but it will take longer to say the same for passengers’ trust.
