Gemini Jets 250 Ryanair (Ireland) 737-800Ryanair Airline Passengers Stage Protest Over Bag Fees - ABC News: "passengers travelling aboard Ryanair flight 8175 apparently had had enough with airline fees. So much so that 100 of them, travelling on a flight from Lanzarote in the Canary Islands to Brussels, Belgium, had to be removed from the airplane by Spanish police over the weekend.

The passengers became disruptive and refused to comply with crew instructions after a number of their group was assessed a 'gate bag fee,' according to a statement posted online by Ryanair. The fee applies to bags that exceed certain weight and size limitations and runs 35 Euros (about $47.50) per bag.

The Irish-based low-cost carrier says 'Lanzarote police required the entire aircraft to be offloaded, each passenger identified,' adding, 'Following further disruptive behavior, the police required for security reasons that this entire group be refused travel.'"
