A little boy who is a nervous flyer was left in floods of tears after a Ryanair IT glitch meant his specially reserved window seat was given to another passenger.

Ryan Bandli, six, was inconsolable the entire flight home to Manchester from Budapest after he realised a woman was sitting in the seat he'd chosen.

His mother, Adi, said the window seat helps her 'very reactive' child to keep calm in the air, allowing him to lean his head against the window. 

She paid an additional fee when booking on the budget airline's Polish subsidiary, Buzz to reserve the seat especially.

But upon boarding the plane, Mrs Bandli noticed a woman sitting in Ryan's seat. When confronted, the stranger revealed she too had been assigned the window seat and refused to move.

'Ryan was really upset and anxious and he cried,' Mrs Bandli told The Mirror. 'He didn't understand how this could happen. We sat separately and it was really stressful.'

He was provided an aisle seat as a consolation, but spent most of the flight crying in his father's lap. 

'My poor child was crying. People gave him sweets and were so kind,' Mrs Bandli said. 

The incident occurred in August, and Mrs Bandli claims she is still waiting for an explanation and compensation from Ryanair.

The airline said Ryan's seat was not double booked, instead stating the 'misunderstanding was the result of an isolated IT glitch'.

Because the flight was fully booked, there were no other window seats available to offer the family, meaning they had to be separated.

Kids and parents these days. I'm surprised this made it to the news but then not so surprised because the publisher is DailyMail lol. A few takeaways from this story which amused me.

Firstly, the adult who refused to shift seats for the crying and "devastated" child. no obligation there of course.

Secondly, no one else on the plane volunteered to swap seats so that the family could be seated together and the spoilt brat can get his window seat, even if it was just to save your ears and everyone else from the crying and throwing of tantrums. 

Lastly, while I understand that it is tough to take care of unruly children, this is a classic lesson for the young child that you don't always get what you want in life and crying certainly doesn't get you there.

6 yrs old kid take air plane, no easy lah. Even the best brought up and well behave kid on ground might behave otherwise in air travel. 6 yrs old only you know?

The focus here should be the airline screw up, and how inconsiderate ppl are these days, but we choose to hammer the kid. Strange. [laugh][laugh][laugh]

Those no-kids one won't understand [laugh]

But if really need these specific arrangements better don't book budget airlines.

When my kids were younger and we travelled even to Malaysia I chose to go by full-fare SIA, guarantee no screw ups or unexpected difficulty.

@BabyBlade

From the perspective of the child. The child doesn't like flying. Was promised by his mother to get a window seat which is how he tolerates flying. To the child it's simple, not getting a window seat = betrayal of promise. He doesn't blame the mother but he's upset. Some kids are OK and can be easily distracted. Some are fixated. 

If the mum paid up and she didn't get what she paid for, then it's just the airline fault. 

Most parents are embarrassed when meltdowns or tantrums happen. But frankly whether u want to be a permissive/authoritarian/authoritative parent is up to you. After all the parent lives with the consequence.

Sorry ah I disagree. If you pay to specially reserve and it's been given away, it is your right to make a fuss.

Dun mention 6 year old, given a 26, 36 or 46 year old there could even be a fist fight if the guy who paid extra $$ finds his seat taken by a guai lan stooge...

You are right, those without kids won't understand. And I have to admit I am not fond of kids. Haha.
