‘Chaotic’ Jet2 flight saw passengers locked in ‘boiling’ plane for hours

  • A Jet2 flight descended into chaos as passengers were locked on board the "boiling" plane for hours due to a flight diversion.

    Passengers jetting off from Manchester to Corfu complained of "chaos" which dominated their flight, leading to a trip to Athens instead of their holiday destination.

    Jet2 flight LS951 was diverted after circling their planned destination of Corfu, instead given no other choice but to divert and land elsewhere.

    One bloke on board the plane, Michael Webster, claimed there had been "no room" for their flight to land and thus a diversion was made instead, Manchester Evening News reported.

    The flight was forced to land 300 miles away from its intended destination, with customers claiming they were left in "hot" and "awful" conditions for over two hours.

    Their stay on the tarmac appeared to leave its mark on disgruntled passengers, who have since claimed their late departure from Manchester may be the reason for the diversion.

    Mr Webster said: "The flight from Manchester departed one hour late, then as we approached Corfu the captain said we couldn’t land as they had no room for us on the stand.

    "We were circling with three other planes. He said we we’re running low on fuel and it didn’t land we’d have to divert to Athens."

    Passengers were fed little information on their situation and were "locked in a boiling plane" for hours on end.

    Michael added: "We were there for over three hours, quite worrying at temperatures have been 32 degrees outside never mind in the plane!
