Experienced an engine problem on take off which resulted in the Flight deck bringing the plane to a halt on the runway. Passengers informed that there was no need to panic, that the fire services would be coming to inspect the plane and that we would be returning to stand. Eventually all passengers disembarked and after almost 4 hours were transported to a hotel for the night. Jet 2 had to fly out two 'rescue planes' to bring passengers home to Newcastle, both flights arrived around 8 pm Sunday 19th August.
I would like to say well done to the company, I felt that they did very well considering the difficulties that they were experiencing. Everybody eventually got home safely, I feel reassured that we come from a country where this is prioritised rather than others where risks are taken and disasters have occured.
