Easyjet have issued and apology to 173 passengers stranded at Fuerteventura due to technical issues.
Flight number EZY9066 was supposed to leave for Bristol at 1.30pm on Saturday 2nd April but had to be cancelled due to un-specified technical issues. The 173 passengers were put up in hotels but the flight was still not replaced by Monday. Easyjet were working to get another plane and crew to Fuerteventura but meanwhile many passengers were missing a day of work.
Passengers took to Twitter to vent their fury. They complained that they weren't being kept informed and no Easyjet staff were available to assist them.
To add insult to the situation, Easyjet stated they were offering 'refreshment vouchers' in compensation, failing to mention the additional €600 each of the 173 passengers are actually due under the EU flight delay compensation rules.
