Passengers on an EasyJet plane from Southend Airport to Malaga were asked to volunteer to get off because it was too heavy, it has been claimed.
The captain of the flight said wind conditions meant the weight of the 156-passenger Airbus 319 made it dangerous to take off. Crew members asked for volunteers while the aircraft sat on the tarmac for more than an hour last week. 10 people were offered £250 compensation each.
An EasyJet spokesman said: "EasyJet can confirm that some passengers on a recent flight from London Southend to Malaga were asked to take a later flight as weather conditions at Southend meant the aircraft would be too heavy to take off with all onboard.
"Like all airlines, we calculate weight using high average estimates for males and females, along with 20kg baggage. In line with EU rules, the passengers who did not travel on the flight were offered £250 compensation and a transfer on to an alternative flight to Malaga."
