Flybe apologises after six hour delay for passengers
Thursday 3rd January 2013, 8:30AM GMT.
AN 80-MINUTE flight from Jersey to Exeter turned into a six-hour journey for one planeload of passengers, after their aircraft was seconded to another route.
Flybe has apologised for the inconvenience, but said the Exeter-bound craft was needed to help passengers in Southampton.
Passengers who boarded Sunday’s 4.40pm Flybe flight in Jersey, should have have touched down in Exeter at about 6pm.
However, the captain told the passengers that they would be landing in Guernsey instead.
After the 10-minute hop from Jersey to Guernsey, the disgruntled travellers were asked to get off and wait in the Guernsey departure lounge until after 9pm.
