Swap captain because of his wife went to not hospital but left the passengers without any details was delayed for 3 hours and missed my connecting transfer to go home. I suppose to arrive at 6pm but arrived at 9pm from the UK flight took off at 7:10pm from malaga. The airline didn’t tell us the delay until an an hour and half in. There was no care provided and the food ran out. On the plane as well there was pregnant lady and she was terrified so it caused more anxiety.

Dale yes up to 3 hours. They didn’t provide us a free. meal as the airline policy said if your flight is delayed more than 2 hours free meal is accommodated. No information why the flight was delayed till 2 hours in and it was because the pilot had a personal emergency as his wife was in hospital. anxiety and fear was happening as people was worried about not getting home. cabin crew withdraw information from us passengers. Missed my numerous transfers (trains at gatwick) and plus train strike so i got home until the next more and caused disruption for my personal plans
