Brit family ‘forced to sit on FLOOR of plane for entire two hour flight back from Menorca because seats they’d booked didn’t exit
A FAMILY was forced to sit on the floor for their entire flight home as their paid-for seat did not exist, they claim.
The Taylors forked out £1,300 on their family holiday to Menorca, but they say they had to spend the two hour TUI flight back on the “filthy” floor.

Paula, 44, and husband Ian, 55, were offered “jump” seats by the flight attendants for take-off and landing, while daughter Brooke, 10, was given the last spare seat.
Paula, from Warwickshire, told BBC One’s Rip-Off Britain, Holidays, said: “It’s hard and it’s uncomfortable and it’s just filthy.

“We just couldn’t believe it when we realised that there genuinely weren’t any seats for us.”
The family were offered £30 by TUI as a ‘goodwill gesture’ and they offered to refund their tickets.
