Easy jet leaves 29 passengers in Malaga

It seems they forgot to board 29 passengers after they had gone through the gate and were stopped by a rope on the Tarmac. No head count done to reconcile boarding cards with passengers!

Now that may be something to rightly complain about.

How long until the "can I claim compensation?" posts start arriving.

In this case they shouldn't need to. EasyJet should pay the €250 straight up. As clear a case of IDB as there can be.

Quote from link #3

"EasyJet said, adding that there was no requirement for cabin crew to do a headcount of passengers on the plane"

"no requirement for crew to do a headcount on the plane"?

On every EZ flight I've done (>50) they have walked up and down the aisle with a clicker, and I've watched them from row 2 reconcile the number of pax with the flight manifest....there was even a delay on one flight because they had miscounted.

Odd.

Ahh well, if you fly to Malaga....what do you expect? ;)
