Ryanair passenger arrested over "rubber sandwich" complaint

When 52 year old Henrik Ulven ordered a "fresh made premium sandwich" on his Ryanair flight, he fully expected to receive just that. Instead, he described the food as inedible and "tasting like rubber" - so asked a flight attendant for something different.

According to Ulven, his request did not go down too well, and the flight attendant told him that if he didn't stop complaining, she'd report him to the authorities.

Ulven thought she was kidding, but upon landing at Norway's Rygge airport, local police boarded the plane and escorted him off. According to the police, he had given the cabin crew "a mouthful."

So there you have it - if you fly Ryanair, you'll eat what you are given, keep your mouth shut and refrain from complaining. Obviously there are always two sides to a story, but to have one of your customers arrested because he did not approve of the quality of your food takes "low cost carrier" to a whole new level.
