This is no joke. What you’re looking at is a seat that was assigned to a passenger on a EasyJet 2021 flight to Geneva. What incompetent-idiots does EasyJet have working on its planes. Who can sit like that for a flight. The photo of the woman sitting in her seat with no backing was taken by Matthew Harris, and shot up to Twitter and was retweeted over 11,000 times.
The image received such backlash that it mounted to the airline responding to Harris. It was not the message Harris expected though. The airline made things worse as they seem to be more focused on the photo coming down than an apology. They requested to Harris to take down the photo as “they investigate” the situation. That action ticked off social media watchers even more. The message from a representative from the airline to Harris said:
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
