Stranded Virgin Atlantic passengers sleep ‘all over the floor’ at airport
This past weekend, a Virgin Atlantic flight from London to New York Kennedy had to make an emergency landing at Gander when the pilots noticed a fuel leak.
After safely landing at the airport late Saturday, passengers had to sleep on chairs and benches in Gander Airport because Virgin says it was unable to book accommodations for passengers.
“We were sleeping on the floor of the bathroom and on the counters in the bathroom. All over the floor in the airport,” passenger Anna Ninan said.
