Ryanair appear to have fallen for a comedian's joke about baggage charges.
Ryan Hand tweeted a gag about Ryanair, and got a response from the airline almost immediately.
He wrote: "What a disgrace, there's a woman crying at the @Ryanair check in desk who's been made to pay more for emotional baggage."

Ryanair then replied: "Hi Ryan, which airport is this happening at?"
@RyanHand_ Hi Ryan, which airport is this happening at? IK- Ryanair (@Ryanair) December 29, 2014
An incredulous Ryan then took to Twitter again, writing: "I can't believe @Ryanair have just fallen for this joke LOL retweet!!!"
Other users laughingly commented on the misunderstanding, with one writing: "Looks like they've made a RyanError."
According to the Irish Examiner, another one said: "You do realise that's now going in the corporate suggestions scheme!!"
"We apologise for temporary technical difficulties with our sarcasm detector today."
