He said that he spent 400 euros on the flight and had no money left.
Mr Scotella to the publication the passenger only noticed he was in a different place as the plane was in descent before berating the cabin crew for allowing him on board.
He told the publication: ‘The flight to Cagliari was late so the two boardings were really close to each other. The man got confused.’
He added that the flight’s staff likely did not check his ticket when he got on the aircraft.

On social media, the video has divided audiences over which party is wrong – the passenger or the staff.
Twitter user Leonard said: ‘He is a passenger, not a professional, he was certainly wrong, but the whole chain of paid professionals, who allowed his boarding on an incorrect flight is to be censored as a much more serious error.’
Another named Frederico wrote: ‘The guy’s right. Wrong in the ways. But he is perfectly right. I work at the airport and the complete incompetence of the staff connected to Ryanair is unheard of.’
