Ryanair has the ‘dirtiest plane cabin with filthy headrest and greasy tray tables’

RYANAIR has been named the airline with the filthiest plane
cabins by Which? Travel.

The consumer champions said that on a test flight, their plane
had “greasy tray tables, soiled headrests and dusty window
sills”.

Which? Travel’s findings were as a result of a survey of 7,901
travellers, who had flown on 12,459 journeys between them.

They gave feedback for 42 airlines that served the UK, with the
majority (81 per cent) saying that they considered the level of
cleanliness to be good on the plane they travelled on.

The cleanest cabin was found on Air New Zealand, with 97 per
cent of those surveyed giving it a rating of good.

It’s followed by Singapore Airlines, Emirates, Qatar Airways,
Cathay Pacific and Swiss, which all scored in the 90s.

Virgin Atlantic scored 87 per cent, Jet2 scored 81 percent,
while British
Airways
scored 78 per cent.

Of the budget airlines, Norwegian scored the highest at 86 per
cent, followed by easyJet at 63 per cent.

But at the bottom of the pile, was Ryanair at only 42 per
cent.

To see how dirty a Ryanair plane really
is, Which? Travel sent an investigator on a flight.

The consumer champions said that they were “greeted by greasy
tray tables, soiled headrests and dusty window sills”.

But even worst, they found even more stains on the tray table
when they used an ultraviolet light.

Rory Boland, Which? Travel editor, said: “Faster and faster
turnarounds are one thing but it is unacceptable for some airlines
to be cutting corners when it comes to cleaning out their cabins
properly – no matter how cheap the airline ticket.

“There are steps you can take; either choose your next flight
on an airline that has a good track record for cleanliness or equip
yourself with some antibacterial wipes. If you are flying Ryanair
though, a biohazard suit might be more appropriate.”
