Ryanair Hilariously Roasts Newlyweds Who Complained of ‘No-Window Seat’ in Flight | “We Sell Seats, Not Windows”
After the wedding, a couple impatiently looks forward to the honeymoon trip. With beautiful memories, shiny wedding bands and grand hopes for a wonderful time, newlyweds fly to romantic places. But what if you are unexpectedly trolled by the airlines you are flying in? A newlywed experienced the same.
Mark Bowe, @markgbowe, is a meteorologist from Dublin City, Ireland. He was headed to his honeymoon with his newly-wedded wife on Ryanair, an Irish Airlines. Their joy was unmatched until they discovered that their seats had no windows. The meteorologist tweeted a picture of himself alongside his wife on his Twitter account. The photo had the couple smiling wide with Bowe doing a thumbs up and the caption read, "Off on honeymoon now about to fly into #Ibiza for the first time and we just can't wait to check out the view on the way over."

The caption continued, "Oh..wait.." The photo showed their "window seats" clearly had no windows. Bowe took a subtle dig at Ryanair Airlines and even tagged them in the post. He may have thought the tweet would pass but the airlines took it in the same spirit. And from there, the trolling began. Apparently, the newlyweds would get a great view of the airplane interiors. Their seats were located away from the middle aisle where there were no windows in their row. If the couple wanted to peer through the window, they'd have to switch seats from a row ahead of them. This sounds a little awkward, right?
But the airlines took notice of Bowe's tweet relatively soon and trolled him back. Their saucy response read, "She's regretting marrying someone who cannot read the fine print." LOL. Their typically cheeky message garnered over 7 million views and over 27k likes. Ryanair is an old fish in the sea and has clapped back at other customers through its social media accounts.

The light-hearted joke even extended to Ryanair's Twitter bio. It now reads, "We sell seats, not windows." Hahaha. Mr. Bowe took all this in happy spirits as his second tweet read, "Getting retweeted by Ryanair is a bit of a life box tick, I must say." Twitter joined in the joke. A Twitter user, @KingAimez, responded to Ryanair, "LOOOOOOOOL Ryanair admin, your days are numbered." The admin immediately quipped, "Like this marriage." Another user, @_MartyBoii_, wrote, "Nice of him to give his other half the non-window seat." Ryanair quickly responded, "Conspiracy theory: he knew what he was doing."
Has Ryanair’s account been hacked???? 🤣🤣🤣— Christine Jordan (@CJGloucester) May 4, 2023
Bowe told The Independent, "I love Ryanair and travel with them all the time. The staff is always so great. We figured out all the times to not get a window seat on your honeymoon. We've both never been to Ibiza before and were looking forward to checking out the lights on the way in, too."
Don't be so horrid @Ryanair. This man brings us the weather forecast after all. You'd never know what he might spot if he could look out.😅— ADoolan (@adoolan34) May 3, 2023
He also added that the light-hearted banter with Ryanair made them laugh, too. "We had such a laugh reading all the comments by the pool on our first day here," he shared. The Irish airlines have a history of making fun of their customers with forthright humor.
