Most of the students were stranded in the Canary Islands after being unable to find or afford other flights, the BBC said.

The University of Brussels students "mutinied" after one was charged a carry-on bag fee by the low-cost Irish carrier, the BBC reported, citing Spanish newspaper La Provincia.

"Following further disruptive behaviour, the police required for security reasons that this entire group be refused travel," Ryanair said in a statement.
