Arik Air: Stranded passengers sleep on floor overnight at Lagos airport (Photos)

Despite resuming operations last week Wednesday after workers shut down operations over non-payment of salaries, stranded Arik Airline passengers were yesterday forced to sleep on the floor while waiting at the Murtala Mohammed International Airport, MMIA, Lagos State.

Some were said to have slept on the floor overnight as their flights were either not mentioned or cancelled for no cogent reason from the management.

One of the affected passengers, Tonye Ibiama, shared the photos on Facebook and wrote:

“I have not seen this type of wickedness from an airline. After people will say buy Naija to grow the Naira yet the naija is too mean to its own people.

“How do you keep your passengers from 6am to the time of this write up without a word at the Lagos international airport?

“People have slept over night there without answers. I am a victim and this is my last with Arik air. I have tried so much but who send me?

“When you approach Nigeria Civil Aviation Authority, NCAA to complain, they don’t even seem to have a hold or make this airline to speak to someone.

“Even the consumer protection means nothing in this country. God help us. Arik is a joke,” Ibiama added.
