Southend fog hits flights
8:01am Thursday 26th September 2013 in Echo News
FOGGY conditions caused two Southend-bound flights to be diverted to Stansted Aiport.
The easyJet flights, from Ibiza and Malaga, circled above Southend before being sent north to Stansted. The airline then bused passengers back to Southend on Tuesday night.
Some spoke of their frustration over the incidents on the Twitter website. Jade tweeted: “That was the worst flight ever!
Landed at Stansted instead of Southend. Brilliant!”
Nichola Cortez posted: “Flight from Ibiza unable to land.
Diverted to Stansted. Should've been home at 11pm. Be lucky if it’s 4am.”
