‘We were then informed that a crew member was not well, and that 20 passengers had to be left behind. After an hour of people getting frustrated, I stepped in.
Suleyman claimed that easyJet offered 400 Euros for their troubles but the businessman was not impressed.
He continued: ‘Easy Jet was offering 400 Euros as compensation, bearing in mind the next flight was 4 days time, I went across to the easyJet employee, he looked very official, and I said that 400 euros was insufficient people to be left behind, and perhaps he should increase the offer to 1,000 euros where passengers were willing to accept.
‘I said if you have no authority, then call London, which he did and compensation was increased to 500 Euros, by now families were on there feet approaching over 2 hours, and I demanded that all families with children should board, people who had special difficulties and more.
‘EasyJet finally allowed them to board. Unfortunately easyJet informed passengers unless people volunteered to stay behind they would choose compulsory 20 passengers and they would get 250 euros.
Suleyman continued: ‘Easy Jet are not trained or equipment to deal with these things, definitely not compassionate!
‘I did my best to stand up for the passengers. The flight Finally arrived around 3 am in morning. easyJet Board should contact every passenger on Flight from Izmir to London, and do the right thing and compensate every passenger 1000 euros for this saga. #toukertime
He ended the rant by saying: ‘Any easyJet officials got the guts to contact me, I am welcome to get into a dialogue with them. Perhaps the CEO?’
