An EasyJet traveler has been photographed sitting on ‘backless’ seats, obviously on a plane booked to fly from Luton to Geneva. While it was not at first clarified whether the photograph had been taken before or after the plane had taken off, EasyJet has since claimed the seats were ‘inoperative’ for the flight.
A Twitter user called Matthew Harris uploaded the image, writing: “#easyjet beats @Ryanair to have backless seats. @IATA @EASA this is flight 2021 Luton to Geneva. How can this be allowed. GeneveAeroport @easyJet_press @easyJet.”
The photograph has just been retweeted 1700 times since being posted earlier this morning and also has 1,800 likes.
An answer from the EasyJet Twitter account requested that Matthew ‘remove the photograph’ so that the airline could look into it.
The tweet said: “Hi Matthew, thanks for bringing this to our attention, before we can investigate this could I ask you to remove the photograph & then DM us more info regarding this, so we can best assist you.”
Harris then replied to EasyJet with what he claims is a ‘real photo’ of the flight descending to Geneva, adding: “Absolutely not.”
