‘Wolfish’ Ryanair passenger arrested / News / The Foreigner

‘Wolfish’ Ryanair passenger arrested. A Ryanair passenger experienced a different kind of sandwich this week when he landed at Rygge airport. Three policemen arrested him for complaining about the airline’s onboard food. Hungry 52-year-old Henrik Ulven (“ulv” means “wolf” in Norwegian) decided to skip the “standard” three Euro sandwich displayed on the in-flight menu in favour of the “freshly made premium sandwich” for another 1.50. It was when he started to eat it after having paid for his beer that the trouble started.

Hungry 52-year-old Henrik Ulven (“ulv” means “wolf” in Norwegian) decided to skip the “standard” three Euro sandwich displayed on the in-flight menu in favour of the “freshly made premium sandwich” for another 1.50.

It was when he started to eat it after having paid for his beer that the trouble started.

“The sandwich looked different from the one on the menu and was as hard as rubber when I bit into it. I called the flight attendant, said I wanted to return it, and told her I didn’t want to pay for it,” he told VG.

Ulven alleged his suggestion of changing it for a chocolate muffin didn’t go down well, and was told he’d be reported to the authorities.

A disbelieving Ulven was arrested upon landing. He claims Ryanair overreacted.

“I thought she was joking. The other passengers were asked to sit still while I had to be escorted by police into a room at the airport.”

Police officer Arild Kopperud confirms three men were sent to arrest the passenger, who the crew claim had given the cabin attendant a mouthful.

“We’ve had to detain passengers before, but this is the first time because of a sandwich,” he chuckled.
