A JET2 holiday flight from Glasgow to the Tenerife had to divert to Manchester airport after it was claimed there was no water for tea and coffee.
Flight LS155 had taken off from Scotland and was flying over the Republic of Ireland when it was redirected when a plumbing issue was reported, the Daily Record reports.
The Boeing 737 aircraft was bound for Spain’s Canary Islands when it was diverted to Manchester airport. The flight landed safely where fire crews were on standby as a standard precautionary measure.
The newspaper reported that an airline spokeswoman said: “There was a technical issue with water on board. There wasn’t water for teas and coffees.”
She added that passengers had been transferred onto another flight and were being “well looked after”.
However, some passengers criticised the incident on social media, with one saying: “So jet2tweets plane from Glasgow to Tenerife had to turn back and emergency land in Manchester because they had no water supply for hot drinks! My a**e. Get a better excuse next time. Forever flying with Ryanair don’t get this sh*t. I’ll get to Tenerife yet.”
Another added: “Diverted to Manchester and now on a replacement plane bound to Tenerife. Broken toilets and no running water on the first Jet2 plane apparently. Everyone in good humour and jet2tweets crew looking after us a treat.”
