Ryanair loses screen-scraping case

A court in Barcelona has upheld a decision which allowed Spanish online travel agency eDreams to continue selling Ryanair seats.

The case in Spain has been running for two years, with Ryanair appealing a decision made nearly a year ago. It initially came about as part of Ryanair’s Europe-wide offensive against screen-scrapers.

eDreams was one of the largest businesses accused by the airline of contravening the terms and conditions of Ryanair.com.

eDreams is owned by venture capitalists TA Associates, which backed a £100 million-plus leveraged buy-out in October 2006.

Reports from Spain said Ryanair has had to pay the costs of the appeal.
