Going passed this tangent the question remains: was the crew indeed asked to sleep in that office (rhe answer seems to be yes) and why? (no convincing justification has been provided)
And I’d now add another question: is it legal in there (or ethical) to have cctv in your staff room *and release the recording to the public without consent of the people who appear on it*? I am not sure what the answer is but between GDPR and various labour/privacy laws it might be open to challenge.
So not sure Ryanair is making itself a favour with releasing this, both in terms of public image and legal consequences (and while some people support them the feedback on their tweet is not exactly overwhelmingly positive).
