Passengers on an Aer Lingus flight from New York to Shannon on Saturday night claim they were left sitting on a plane in ‘excruciating heat’ for almost five hours before being told it was cancelled. Even before passengers began boarding flight EI-110 from New York’s JFK airport to Shannon, the airline asked for 23 passengers to volunteer not to travel. According to one passenger, this was because of an “issue with an exit door.”

These passengers were accommodated on another flight while the remaining travellers boarded the airplane and expected to fly to Shannon that night. However, after several hours sitting on the aircraft passengers were told their flight would not be departing and had been cancelled. The Aer Lingus website stated that flight EI-110 and the return leg from Shannon to New York on Sunday, were “cancelled for technical reasons.”

On Twitter, one customer asked of Aer Lingus: “Will you be providing information on compensation for passengers of the cancelled EI110? Please take into account the poor management of the situation (inadequate food/drink, keeping passengers on a hot plane for 3 hours and minimal updates).”

Another tweet said: “Very disappointing experience right now flight EI110 JFK to Shannon! Easily looking at a 3+ hour delay, still haven’t moved! No genuine apology or any updates! A flight attendant was asked how much longer? The reply ‘We are looking [sic] to be going at all’”.

Immediately they (Aer Lingus) needed 23 volunteers to not fly because of an issue with the exit door, so those 23 were given another flight. Once we boarded, almost 2 hours behind our scheduled time, there were more delays. All we were told were ‘technical difficulties’.

That flight, due to depart New York at 6.20pm (local time), was expected in Shannon this morning (Monday) at 5.50am (Irish time). “Guests impacted have been accommodated on other available transatlantic services via our partner airlines. We apologise to guests for the inconvenience caused,” the airline said.

On Saturday, Aer Lingus flight EI-115 from Dublin to Philadelphia in the US was forced to return to the airport after suffering an engine failure on departure. Almost immediately after taking off from Dublin the crew issued a Pan-Pan radio distress call reporting they had struck a bird.

The bird-strike was also observed by air traffic controllers who confirmed seeing a flame-out of the right engine. It’s understood that at least one bird was ingested by the right engine resulting in the engine flame-out and subsequent engine failure.

The flight landed safely at 2.05pm and was met by airport fire and rescue crews. The jet was able to taxi to the terminal where engineers were waiting to inspect the engine. However, that flight and the return leg (EI-114) had to be cancelled as a result of the incident.

Flooding and travel chaos have befallen large parts of the UK after half a month's worth of rain fell in just 24 hours. Areas in the North West have seen between 40mm and 50mm (1.5in and 1.9in) of rain, with 52.2mm recorded between 11am on Saturday and 11am on Sunday at Greenfield.
