BA flight 116 managed to get lost at JFK in New York before the crew was told to return to the port and leave passengers on board.

One of these passengers, Denise Martin – who was in New York for driving the marathon on Sunday, told Sun Online: "People are tired and pissed off.

"Imagine the general atmosphere is that we would rather be away from the plane instead of boarding indefinitely."

She added that the crew took food and drink to keep the passengers happy.

Speaking of her marathon efforts, Denise said: "The crowds of supporters did the day; they were incredible. I really wish I had paid for extra bone space right now."

Others have said they were escorted by their flights and told to wait in the airport for further updates.

BA passenger Charlie, who was also in New York for marathon, told Sun Online: "We sat on the floor for an hour and just escorted by it.

"Now I'm sitting at the gate waiting for information they have not been able to give."
