The plane scheduled to land at Lanzarote* (top) had to land at neighboring Fuerteventura (bottom, Canary Islands) because of extreme weather

More than 100 tourists on a Ryanair flight to Lanzarote were stunned when they were abandoned on the wrong Canary Island.

Don's note: Well, I am not sure how anybody can call this abandonment.
Let's look at the other revelation report disappears from the Daily Mail, UK, version.

Ryanair arranged that the ferry company would carry affected Ryanair passengers to Lanzarote free of charge when ferries recommenced the following morning.

Ferries were also affected by these high winds so passengers were provided with EU261 information which outlines their entitlement to provide receipted hotel expenses to Ryanair, for refund.

The biggest complaint from passengers according to the news reports, was that they were forced to purchase an overnight hotel room because even ferries couldn’t ply the waters between the two islands. The normal ferry journey takes between 25-40 minutes.

*Where is Lanzarote? Lanzarote is a Spanish island situated just 79 miles (125 km) off the coast of Africa and is the most easterly of the Canary Islands. The island is 37 miles (60km) long and 12 miles (20 km) wide, making it the fourth largest island in the Canaries.
