A British Airways flight turned into a nightmare for its passengers, as a routine journey from Orlando to London ended up taking three days and included an unplanned landing in New York City and an overnight stay at John F. Kennedy International Airport.
British Airways Flight 2036 was scheduled to take off from Orlando International Airport on Thursday evening for Gatwick International Airport in London, but ended up being grounded overnight due to “mechanical issues.”

The Orlando Sentinel reports that when Flight 2036 eventually took off on Friday evening, it was soon diverted to JFK Airport early Saturday morning “as a precaution” due to “a minor technical issue.”

Newsweek reports that upon arriving at JFK Airport, the passengers deplaned and some even took to sleeping on the floors of the airport terminal.
In a statement to Business Insider, a British Airways spokesperson said, “We appreciate that this was an exhausting and frustrating experience for our customers, and we have apologized for the long delay to their flight.”
