Six Ryanair cabin crew members photographed sleeping on the floor of a Spanish airport office last month have been fired, the airline says.
The image, which Ryanair said was staged, was widely circulated online. A Portuguese union that represents airline crews slammed the airline.
The staff in the picture were dismissed for gross misconduct, a Ryanair spokesman said, reports the BBC.
Over 20 crew members were stranded in Malaga airport when their Porto-bound flights were diverted on October 14.
