“We recognized and acknowledged that the little we did to ameliorate your pains cannot compensate adequately for the days you lost and not being able to meet with your loved ones or keep important appointments during the Yuletide season while your flights were rescheduled.”
Bankole explained that the airline’s ordeal started on December 22, 2017, in the United Kingdom when its fully boarded B777 aircraft made an air return to London Gatwick for safety reasons, which called for serviceability checks and certification lasting 72 hours. He said the airline’s efforts only paid off on December 24, 2017, with relief flights, but the holiday period compounded the backlog of passengers, which stretched to December 27 even though two aircraft were deployed.
