easyJet passenger shocked when he spots something VERY wrong with plane seat

An easyJet passenger’s tweet has gone viral after he shared a photo of a very unusual-looking seat on his flight. YouTuber Cal Freezy uploaded an image of an easyJet seat with no cushion on the bottom. Where the seat cushion should have been, only a sheet of metal can be seen. The back of the seat remained intact, however, and the seatbelt was still present.

Freezy’s shot showed a man about to sit down on the rather uncomfortable seat while a second showed him on the cushion-less perch.

The YouTuber captioned the pair of photos: “Loooooool check this seat on my flight.”

However, Freezy pointed out that no one was actually sat in the seat for the flight.

He tweeted: “Just as a heads up, no ones sat in that seat. Just next to us haha.”

easyJet explained that the seat cushion had been removed for cleaning and confirmed no one sat on it.

An airline spokeswoman told Express.co.uk: “The seat cushion was removed for cleaning. No passengers were permitted to fly in this seat as it was inoperative during this time.

“Safety is our highest priority and easyJet operates its fleet of aircraft in strict compliance with all safety guidelines.”

Nevertheless, Freezy’s photos attracted plenty of attention from Twitter users who shared their thoughts on the ‘bottomless’ seat.

“easyjet coming in with those luxury seats,” one person commented. Another quipped: “Looks comfortable.”

The unusual-looking seat comes a week after easyJet came under fire on social media for a ‘backless’ seat.

“Second incident in a week. @easyJet don’t you think these planes should be taken out of circulation until you fix your ongoing safety concerns?” A Twitter user posted.

Last week, flier Matthew Harris uploaded an image of a female easyJet passenger perched on a seat at the end of a row with no backs. Only the base of the seats and the armrests remained. 

“#easyjet beats @Ryanair to have backless seats,” he tweeted. “This is flight 2021 Luton to Geneva. How can this be allowed?”

easyJet explained that no one was permitted to sit or travel in the seat and the passenger had only sat in the seat for the sake of the photo. The flight departed with five spare seats onboard.

An easyJet spokeswoman told Express.co.uk: “No passengers were permitted to fly in these seats as they were inoperative awaiting repair.

“Safety is our highest priority and easyJet operates its fleet of aircraft in strict compliance with all safety guidelines.”
