News: EasyJet passenger says cabin crew forced aborted landing because they were ‘mucking about’.
A SHOCKED passenger with British airline easyJet claims her flight home was forced to abort landing because the cabin crew were too busy “having a party”.
The Sun Online reports the traveller — who did not want to be named — said the cabin manager spent the flight eating in the galley, warming up croissants and looking at pictures on her phone.
When it came to landing at Gatwick last Friday the mum said the pilot was forced to tell those on board cabin crew weren’t ready.
Speaking to the Sun Online she said: “It was unbelievable — like something out of a Carry On film.
“When the pilot announced 15 minutes to landing they were all running about like headless chickens, trying to prepare the cabin.
“It put the customers through a terrifying few minutes thinking that there was something wrong with the plane.
“The pilot then had to say it was because the cabin crew weren’t ready. They obviously hadn’t finished all their checks in time. They were still standing up when it came into land.”
The shocked witness said she would never fly easyJet again after it left her “already terrified of flying eight-year-old now even more terrified”.
She added: “She was hysterical.
“There was one young member of staff who was trying her best.
JasyJet told the SunOnline: “easyJet can confirm that EZY8706 from Tenerife to London Gatwick on 13 January performed a routine ‘go around’ on landing as the cabin could not be secured in time. #like4like @crew.room
