September 6th 2022:
“423 passengers found themselves trapped” on board. They were unable to disembark for more than four hours after a technical fault meant the stern ramp failed to open. The issue lead to some delays throughout the day. Passengers were offered a complimentary breakfast to compensate for the delays. Shortly after 11 a.m. the damage was fixed. A cleat had failed to unlock, so the ramp had been stuck. “.
