Flight from London to Belfast delayed after cabin crew get into heated row

The argument was over water bottles apparently.

A FLIGHT FROM London Gatwick to Belfast yesterday was delayed after two members of the cabin crew got into a heated argument.

It’s understood that the disagreement on the easyJet flight related to a row over water bottles.

The flight had been due to leave at 2.45pm from the London airport but was forced to return to its gate in order for the crew members to be replaced.

TV presenter Dan Lobb was onboard the flight and live tweeted for the duration of the argument.

He stressed that a one-hour flight was being delayed because the two crew members “just don’t like each other”.

In a statement easyJet said it could “confirm that flight EZY835 from London Gatwick to Belfast returned to stand to replace two crew members following a verbal disagreement between them”.

“The safety and welfare of our passengers and crew is easyJet’s highest priority and in order to deliver this easyJet’s cabin crew need to be able to work as a team.”

We would like to apologise for any inconvenience caused by the resulting delay.
