Passengers on the Jet2 flight to Newcastle including my friend Paulo, are having an awful return journey back to to the UK from Madeira.
The flight already diverted to the Canary Islands from Newcastle due to the bad weather in Madeira. Passengers were left waiting at the airport for about 6 hours before the plane managed to return and land in Madeira.
The flight eventually left Madeira about 19.30, with passengers hoping to get back to Newcastle late evening. My friend has told me they have been diverted to Alicante, to change crew adding more stress to the journey. As they were ready to leave the stewardess actually broke the door trying to close it, and at the moment the passengers are still on the plane while somebody tries to fix the door.
I really hope these passengers are being looked after, and they get back to the UK soon.
