Sorry, we’re too tired to take you on holiday

ANGRY families were left stranded when their Easyjet flight to Mallorca was cancelled because the cabin crew “were too tired”.

Holiday-makers, flying from Belfast to Palma Airport, were shocked when the airline made the announcement at around midnight last Sunday.

The flight was scheduled for an 8.45pm departure, but 146 passengers were left wondering what on earth had happened to the service.

Cornelia Dalipe and her 15-year-old daughter, Erin, said they were yet more shocked to see the police waiting outside, as the crew were led through a separate door.

Yet none of the passengers had been aggressive, and Cornelia said: “We couldn’t believe what we were being told. There are many people who work 12-14-hour shifts, and they just get on with it.”

She added: “There were babies crying, and parents of children with special needs were trying to find a solution.”

The airline has since apologised for the “crew issue”, and

an easyJet statement added: “We can confirm that flight EZY6711, from Belfast to Palma, was cancelled on Saturday, 18th August, due to two members of the cabin crew feeling unfit to operate.

“Cabin crew and pilots have an obligation, under safety regulations, to report if they feel unable to operate.”
