GLASGOW (Web Desk) – Passengers were audibly shocked when a Ryanair crewmember gave a very frank and extremely assessment of why a Glasgow-to-Dublin flight had been delayed for eight long hours, RT reported.

Instead of trying to calm down the discount airline’s restless customers about their long delay, the female member of staff said:

“The captain cannot take off when we have ice on the wings – we don’t want to die.”

Well, that escalated quickly.

Ella Ryan, who was on board the postponed 11:35 pm. flight, told “All hell was breaking loose when a member of staff made this outrageous announcement.”

She said the mention of death only made the situation worse for anxious flyers.

Ryan took a recording of the unusual incident, which shows the plane’s cabin erupting in a cacophony of groans and sarcastic cheers.
