No fun for 90 on 'no frills' Leeds flight

A Leeds-based 'no frills' airline has come under fire after a cancelled flight left a group of 90 airline passengers stranded abroad.

The LS0348 9pm flight from Dusseldorf in Germany to Leeds was grounded after heavy snow on Monday.

A potential transfer to Cologne was also cancelled and passengers were forced to sleep in the airport.

Travellers, including Leeds' Lisa Englefield, who was with her 12-year-old son Brannan, and Anita Murray, 70, from York, said no-one was offered food or drinks vouchers, accommodation or free phone calls, as required under EU law.

A spokeswoman said that a letter was handed to each passenger affected, which explained what had happened and outlined their options. The majority flew home last night, she added.
