BRITISH AIRWAYS RESOLVES ISSUE THAT LEFT HOLIDAY TRAVELERS STRANDED ACROSS US

“Still stranded- no food, water or hotel. Pretty dodgy service,” she wrote.

The airline replied quickly to Hurley’s second tweet and explained that the delay was due to a “technical issue.”

“We’re experiencing delays to some of our flights due to a technical issue with our flight planning,” the airline’s official Twitter account wrote. “We’re sorry for the disruption to your journey, we’re urgently investigating this so that you travel as soon as possible.”

Three hours later, “The Royals” alum tweeted again about her ordeal and complained about the lack of communication from British Airways. 

She revealed that she and her traveling companions were forced to make their own arrangements to leave the airport after 12 hours of waiting without food and water.

“Still nothing from @british_airways,” she stated. “Extraordinary service! Finally, managed to find a taxi ourselves to escape airport after more than 12 hours with no food or water #avoidflying.” 

The official Twitter account for British Airways responded to Hurley’s tweet in a reply, asking her to send a direct message to the account with “further details” so they could “take a closer look” at the situation.
