"We have 75 Swedes in Madeira right now, but there are no tourists have become sick of the anophelines go. It is also the laxest form of dengue has been found, "said Magdalena Öhrn, information manager at the wing. -To protect themselves, as they always protect themselves against mosquito, with myggspray and myggolja. But we are following the developments and has staff on site.
The wing does not consider that the risk is so great that there is reason to repatriate Swedes from Madeira, at least not for the moment.
-No, that it is now the hotel areas not affected but mostly private homes. Authorities have informed that they should not have flowers and pots on fat on balconies and in gardens because if there is a little water left on the drums like anophelines go there.
TT: are the Swedish tourists worried about?
-No, no tourists have been hit. I think we’ve got a question for our staff on the ground, “says Öhrn.

Ryanair’s new scandals

It blows on Ryanair. In the short term, the low-fare carrier has been hit by several scandals. By leaving one of their plane left all passagere-who was forced to go home without help.

On Friday, the family Axelsson fly home from vacation in Croatia with Ryanair. But the plane was running empty back to Sweden, because of strong winds. Airport staff in Rijeka, convey what Ryanair welcomed: “passengers may take home best they want”, writes Aftonbladet.
-So bad I never thought that they would behave, “said Mirva Axelsson, told the newspaper.
The family received the check flights, transfers and hotels, which cost about 8,000 dollars. Ryanair argued, however, that the emailed passengers with offer to reschedule the trip for free. For Aftonbladet, they said, too, that the family would be compensated.
This is just one of several scandals that Ryanair has been involved in lately. Here are three other events that create attention.

Expensive boarding cards
British Suzy McLeod travelled with Ryanair from Alicante in Spain to Bristol, England. She checked it in as it should be on the home page, but forgot to print the boardingkorten. When she was forced to pay a surcharge of EUR 60 per card, there was a total of about 2 600 SEK. Suzy McLeod wrote about the incident on Facebook: “push like if you feel that this is unfair.” The post received over 500,000 likes. Some believe, however, that the airline was right.

Call the customer stupid
After Suzy Mcleod entered his post on facebook about extraavgifterna on boardingkorten commented CEO Michael O’Leary event. He said that travellers who are going without boarding cards at the airport is “stupid” and that those who don’t like the rule can tighten the hell.

Many emergency landings
Recently, Ryanair has been noted for its many emergency landings, several of which have been in Spain. In mid-september nödlandade two planes in Spanish airports after the pilot stressed on technical problems. In July, three of the company’s aircraft landed at Valencia airport on the same day, because of fuel shortages and in early september had two planes go when the cabin pressure dropped suddenly. Ryanair believes that the Spanish authorities operates a war against it, type the DN.
According to Aftonbladet, due to the many nödlandningarna that the company saves on fuel and do not fill the tank enough for unforeseen events.
