A DJ has admitted that he only moaned about the service he got from an airline so he would fit in with all of the other DJs he follows on social media.
Steven Ryan, a.k.a. Ryan On Air, claimed that he was “quite satisfied” with the service he got on a recent flight between Dublin and London but decided to rant about it on Instagram because he felt like he “had to”.
“I don’t know why I did it if I’m being perfectly honest with you,” Ryan told Wunderground. “I see all of these big DJs and all they seem to do is talk shit and rant about airlines messing up their flights or losing their luggage.

You may as well just hang up your headphones.”
So far, nothing has come of Mr Ryan’s online rant, which seems to suggest no one gives a fuck about what DJs have to say about airlines, more on this as we get it.
