Champagne cork pops EasyJet’s bubble

EasyJet “Champagne” selection. Maybe they should stick to beer.

Dahlings, after all these planes making emergency landing due to hail, another flight by UK’s EasyJet on the way from London to Turkey had to make an emergency landing in Milan, Italy.

The reason being it was damaged by a champagne cork.

One couple had ordered a bottle of champagne and after the flight attendant opened it, the cork smashed through ceiling panels causing all the oxygen masks to fall ! After that the pilot diverted to Italy to make emergency repairs.

An easyJet spokesman said: “easyJet can confirm that flight EZY8845 from London Gatwick to Dalaman on 7 August diverted to Milan Malpensa as a precautionary measure due to a technical issue with the cabin crew oxygen masks.

“In line with safety procedures the captain took the correct decision to divert so that the cabin crew oxygen masks could be reset. The flight continued to Dalaman 1 hour and 7 minutes later once this had happened. Passengers were provided with a complimentary inflight service whilst on the ground in Milan Malpensa.

That’s what they get when those budget airlines try to emulate the like of British Airways serving plonk to their posh passengers. Champagne aboard an EasyJet ? Dahlings, it’s like giving strawberries to a pig and completely wasted on them.

I expect EasyJet passengers to be follow  Kate Moss’s example and bring their own bottle of vodka and secretly chug it. Standards are slipping.

Ciao for now,
Cleo.
