  • Published by Vedat
A popular low cost carrier cancelled a late-night flight from Geneva to Gatwick due to bad weather on Sunday, and then emailed passengers to wait 86 years and one day for a replacement.

flight-canceledAccording to the news of The Independent, EasyJet emailed passengers booked on Sunday flight from Geneva to Gatwick saying, "We are writing to inform you that your flight will depart as 9485 at 11:00 local time on 29/07/2099"

The airline apologised for the “significant inconvenience” that a wait until the eve of the 22nd century might cause, and expressed the hope that passengers “will give us another chance in the future”.

A spokesman for the Civil Aviation Authority said: “Because the delay is weather-related, it is unlikely compensation will be due, but that does not affect your rights to accommodation, food and phone calls.”

If any passengers were fortunate enough to live until the summer of 2099, easyJet would be responsible for providing them with three meals and two international phone calls every day, plus a hotel room every night.

Some passengers called easyJet customer services to ask for their money back. Refunds were promised within 20 working days.
