An 18-month-old baby needed treatment for dehydration and several adults fainted after Ryanair left the passengers on one of its flights on the tarmac at Sevilla airport for over two hours without air-conditioning. El Mundo reports that temperatures rose to nearly 50 degrees as the delayed flight from Sevilla to Pisa sat on the tarmac between 1240 and 1450 during the heat of the day. What’s more there were not enough bottles of water to go round, and so these were given only to the children.

The captain told the passengers, only in English and Italian, that the compressor had failed, and that he was unable to start either the plane’s engines or the air conditioning. He said that if the steps were lowered they would lose their flight slot.

Strange Random Flight Delay Quotes:

“There is a false perception out there that the airlines are required to compensate passengers when their flights are canceled or delayed, when in fact, they are only required to provide compensation to passengers who were ‘bumped’ from an overbooked flight.” – Ed Perkins

“I’m fed up with it. I’m sick and tired of the delays, tired of the waiting. I’m hanging it up. You can have it. This flight will be my last flight.” – Raymond Davidson
