Dahlings, budget airline Jet2.com decided to have a promotion in Derby, England and give out free tickets.
What a marvelous idea.
Except the marvelous idea crashed and burned as it quickly turned into a mass brawl of people “desperately” fighting each other to get such free tickets. From the BBC news:
People in Derby chased young women dressed in full body spandex suits who were giving out the Jet2 tickets.
There were reports of some of the women being rugby tackled to the ground, crying in distress, and members of the public being injured.
The screen capture of the facebook comments in the BBC article are hilarious.
I see that Jet2 even flies to Palma de Mallorca, the airport for Magaluf. Perfect location after that little show in Derby. (see our previous post on Magaluf).
I will tell henceforth tell my scribe to write to Stephem Heapny, the CEO and propose that Jet2 alter their slogan to “Jet2: The Lord of the Flies”.
Ciao for now, Cleo.
