Jez: Plane journey back from Spain was far from smooth

NEWS COMMENT: Blue badge abusers are cheating the system

Have your say

L ast week when I flew back from Spain I experienced a total nightmare journey – things started to go wrong from the minute we arrived at the airport.

Our suitcase was 1kg over the limit and we were forced to open it up and stuff clothes into our carry-on bags.

Then once on the plane I noticed the seat in front of me was leaning back much further than all the others and I was left with no legroom. The stewardess explained the seat was broken and there was nothing she could do.

Then as we approached Gatwick, one chap refused to buckle up and kept trying to run to the toilet. Eventually the crew got him under control and after we landed armed police boarded the plane to remove our disruptive passenger.
