Ryanair is offering free tickets to everyone (Facebook Scam)
A Facebook scam and online survey-scam claims that Ryanair is offering free tickets to everyone due to their cancellation of over 2000 flights in the coming weeks. The title of the post says “Ryanair is offering free tickets to everyone!” However, this is not true; Ryanair is not giving away 2 free tickets. This is a survey-scam designed to phish personal information.

The survey-scam utilizes fake Ryanair Facebook pages and websites in order to seem legitimate. The scam first directs Facebook users to a webpage on www.winningonline.club and asks those who visit the website a series of questions, such as “how often do you fly with Ryanair?”
The scam then asks Facebook users to share the page with 5 Messenger friends, share the page by clicking the “Share on Facebook” button, and type “Thanks for the #tickets” in the comment field.
Content from the webpage is detailed below:

Verifying of the steps
Once the steps are completed the target will then be directed to a new website such as surveysandpromotionsusa.com that contains a never-ending survey. The survey cannot be completed and is essentially designed to phish personal information the target manually submits (such as phone numbers, addresses, billing information, and more).
If you come across a post on Facebook that says “Ryanair is offering free tickets to everyone! Because of canceling more than 2000 flights the coming weeks!” make sure to ignore it or tell your friend that it is a scam. Share this page to inform the person that they will not actually receive 2 free tickets.
