Adam, which declined to give their name, stated: “We happen kept in the dark a little bit. We’ve just already been informed all routes have now been terminated. A little bit of information would have been good – just something.”

Sarah Cotterill told BBC News: “We had been considering travel with easyJet back into Gatwick at tea-time last night. We got to the airport so we got through protection and everything then we were queuing as much as board the jet, of which point the news headlines came through from UK which they had been grounding flights, therefore after spending around three hours within airport we’ve already been bussed back to our resort, and therefore’s in which our company is at this time.
“At the airport we had almost no information, and there was some members of the Egyptian staff at airport wanting to tell us what they understood, but that has been very little. Just like we were making, some embassy staff resulted in and travelled around towards resort.
“Although we had been sat on hotel, the woman from the embassy ended up being telling us the thing that was going on, but this morning we’ve perhaps not seen or heard from anyone. All we all know is what we’ve was able to get a hold of on the net, from the airline, from your own web site and things like that.”
Asked about whether her flight was being rescheduled, Ms Cotterill said: “We’ve got no idea. All we realize is from easyJet’s website that it’s not very likely is today, but we don’t know when it will likely to be.”
Expected how she'd feel about getting on a plane, she said: “Obviously it's stressing, but i do believe since they’re placing all this in position i do believe it will oftimes be the best airplane going from everywhere, I think, because they’re likely to be really checking every little thing considering what’s took place, thus I was worried before the good news is i believe they’re using the protection really really.”
