Nigerian woman identified as Marlene Onyeocha shared her ordeal flying from Abuja to London.
According to Marlene, the flight was delayed because they had to fly down to Lagos to pick up their pilot who couldn’t stay in Abuja because of the security risks, before embarking on their journey to London.
She urged Nigerians to vote right in 2023 to ensure a government that will stand for the people is put into power and prevent mishaps like these.
In her words;
“I first have to thank the Almighty for journey mercy then tell my experience with my so called favorite airline British Airways. It was surposed to be a six and half hour flight from Abuja to London but it took almost 11hrs.
Left Abuja on time 8.05 but because according to the airline, due to security alert in Abuja, the pilot refused to sleep in Abuja… Don’t ask me who flew the plane to Lagos. With all passengers on board, we had to fly to lagos to pick up the pilot not a laughing matter.
Touching down in Lagos, a passenger fell ill and we had to wait for he/she be escorted off the plain without no announcements made until a few of us exploded before apology came.
Why l’m l telling you this? Come 2023, we need a government that will stand for her people internationally. I used to boasts l only fly British Airways, been flying from when it was British Caledonian Airways but after the yesterday’s experience, will do a rethink.
The crew couldn’t even read the manuals properly as if under trained or staff still leaning were brought in by emergency. What was going through my mind at the moment, l can’t share here but I intend to file a report and hope to get some answers.
I’m happy to be back home.”
