Do you remember the last bad flight you had? Screaming babies, the person next to you falling asleep on your shoulder, someone kicking the back of your seat… Well, at least you had the back of your seat. For one unlucky lady, this was not the case on her flight.
easyJet may have beaten Ryanair in what is known as the worst airline to fly with, as on a flight to Geneva one lady found herself without the back of her seat.
On a one hour and sixteen minute journey flight from Luton to Geneva, a woman was assigned a seat on her flight that would mean she would have to remain in an upright position as her seat was backless.
As reported to Sun Online Travel, the passenger was informed she would need to stay in the seat on flight EXY98HD until the flight was fully boarded, having only just spotted the dangerous seating arrangement just moments before people began to board.
An easyJet spokesperson contacted Sun Online Travel to inform them that once everyone had boarded the lady was given a choice of five other seats.
They also said: “Safety is our highest priority and easyJet operates its fleet of aircraft in strict compliance with all safety guidelines.”
However, at this moment in time it hasn’t been revealed as to why the seat had no back but easyJet are determined for this error to go undetected, as you can see from the tweets below:
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. Ross https://t.co/Qq2zhBAizh

Unluckily for easyJet, the tweet has already been shared over 2.9K times.
Despite the situation being resolved, it did make passengers of the flight question the safety of the plane and it did put into question what easyJet would have done to resolve the situation if the plane had been full, with no other seats for the lady to have sat on.
One has to wonder how safe the rest of the plane was. This was her seat. The lady was moved to a spare seat once the flight was fully boarded. Not sure what would have happened if the flight was full.
My partner took the photo.
