DUNCAN Bannatyne has hit out at easyJet after being stuck on a three hour flight with almost 200 passengers – and only one working toilet.
The business mogul was flying from London Gatwick to Faro in Portugal where he has a holiday home yesterday when he discovered only one loo was in use.
Along with approximately 185 passengers, the 68-year-old was left furious asked staff: “How do they get off with it?”
He revealed his predicament after taking to the company’s Twitter page to complain about the flight – which costs on average £200.
He wrote: “Three hour flight to Faro on easyJet flight has another broken toilet at front. How do they get off with it?”
An easyJet customer service immediately responded, writing: “Hi Duncan. Sorry to hear that.
“Can you please share with us the number of the flight so as to investigate? Thank you. Catarina.”
The former Dragons’ Den star replied: “EZY8929. Just landed Faro. Full plane one toilet.”
Despite the issue, he added: “Staff were great though.”
Dozens of social media users took to the post surprised that Bannatyne even used the budget airline.
