A traveller from Manchester, who was on a Jet2 flight with his wife and two children, was not happy with the flight. Due to unexpected problems, the family was forced to wait for a long time and freeze in line at a hotel in an unpleasant neighbourhood.

The father-of-two told the Manchester Evening News that he was travelling on LS891 flight from Manchester to the island of Lanzarote when they were warned of an unscheduled landing.

The passengers were almost there when the crew warned them of "unforeseen operational difficulties." The plane eventually landed in Tenerife. The passenger said that he felt like a "prisoner" because the travellers were not allowed to leave the plane.

"The crew members were crying. They were deprived of power and left to restore order. The crew told me that the captain was 'screaming'," the source, who preferred to remain anonymous, said.

The family arrived in Alicante early in the morning, where, according to them, they waited 40 minutes to pick up their luggage and another 30 minutes for a bus to get to the hotel offered by Jet2.

There, the passengers spent a lot of time in a "frozen" line. "The hotel is right on the Benidorm strip, filled with drunken revelers on Saturday night. This flight is filled with children," the father of the family was outraged.

A Jet2 spokesperson said, "Due to adverse weather conditions, LS891 flight from Manchester to Lanzarote has been diverted to Alicante. We would like to offer our sincere apologies to all customers affected by the unforeseen delay, which was beyond our control."
