Default EasyJet plane runs out of Fuel, UK & USA Airport Staff Crises

[EasyJet plane runs out of FUEL, drops passengers at Luton but sends all their bags to GATWICK because of 'staff shortages'
- as airport anarchy causes FIVE-HOUR queues
and leaves families sleeping on floors]



At least he did not Crash

Terrible time to travel abroad
Covid-19 meant, thousands of staff were sacked
and laid off.
Those staff members moved on


[Rest from the chaos: Passengers sleep on the
ground before they try and get their
flights in Stansted Airport this morning]

We heard one attendant complaining to someone that the number of passengers they were dealing with went from 1,100 a week to 30,000 -.

They sacked / laid off all their staff during Covid and now they expect them to all come back to help them out ..

It is important we know
Other Airports in other nations are the same,



This is all from China's Covid-19
they started staff getting laid off in 2020

All around the world.

One of my friends had a flight booked today, they delayed it this morning by 3 hours but said to still arrive at the airport normal time. He got through the queues and security ok but then they cancelled the flight 3 hours before take off

I know there's a lot of things out of the airlines and airports control but the way customers are being messed around is awful

Yes in Manchester Police were called
to get people off a plane
that could not leave
due to not enough staff to fly it.



Covid-19 and Brexit
are the blame
Reporters are saying.

Mr Heapy said Brits failed to
turn up at interview or take
applications seriously
]


[Jet2 boss Steve Heapy (pictured) is said to have
made the inflammatory comments during

after the minister rejected calls - including from the
likes of BA and easyJet - to grant airlines
more powers to hire visa-free workers
from Europe.]
