The recent thundersnow storms were without doubt highly inconvenient and uncomfortable for all affected.
(Just ask the poor souls who found themselves trudging through the snow on foot on Friday in a bid to reach Stansted Airport on time.)
But for Ryanair staff, it was an opportunity to stand erect and be noticed.
Case in point, this proud specimen was etched into the snow at Dublin Airport on Friday.
Brendan Keary who tweeted the image remarked: “Ryanair ground staff are a creative bunch.”
A spokesman for Ryanair told the Telegraph: “While our ground crew excel at industry leading 25-minute turnarounds, art isn’t their forte, as they’ve clearly forgotten to draw wings on their snow airplane.”
