Thomas Cook land passengers in England again
Thomas Cook has been accused of giving Glasgow bound passengers a second class service, after a second flight was ‘needlessly’ diverted to an English airport, the Evening Times reports. The new report comes after the holiday company was criticised in the Scottish Parliament last week over a similar problem.
In the latest incident passengers on the return flight from Gran Canaria to Glasgow Airport were told their plane could not land in Glasgow ‘due to freezing fog’ and would be diverted to Manchester Airport instead. However, the newspaper reports that no planes were refused permission to land at Glasgow Airport at that time and other aircraft of a similar size were landing and taking off without problems.
The Evening Times reported last week that passengers on a Las Palmas return holiday flight to Glasgow Airport with Thomas Cook had a 20-hour delay and were re-routed to East Midlands on Boxing Day, which was raised at the Scottish Parliament. Glasgow SNP MSP Sandra White told the newspaper: ‘People in Scotland are being treated like second class citizens.’
