Meanwhile, passengers were left stranded 500 miles from their intended destination after their flight from Manchester to Dublin was forced to divert to Paris when a storm rolled in on Sunday.

The flight, which was originally due to land at Dublin International Airport at around 3.30pm, was already delayed by an hour on departure from Manchester Airport on Sunday afternoon.

However, due to «dangerous» winds, the plane was forced to circle several times over the Irish Sea before aborting its landing and instead flying to Paris Beauvais-Tille airport, landing shortly before 5.30pm.

Dublin International Airport has already issued a public warning of possible flight cancellations, delays and a spate of canceled landings, with a number of other flights diverted to Manchester and other airports across the country.

Two hours later, at 7.30pm, a passenger on board the Ryanair flight said those on board were still stuck on the runway in Paris.

A number of other flights were forced to divert to other airports on Sunday due to Storm Isha’s winds, with a number of other flights canceled from UK airports including Manchester.

But some travelers were furious when Ryanair revealed its overnight accommodation plans.

After posting the photo and video on X, one customer said: “This is your excuse for staying overnight when the flight is diverted. Absolutely disgraceful.”

In a large hall with a metal roof, there were rows of camping beds with yellow foil blankets on which people slept.

Meanwhile, at Bristol Airport, passengers who were forced to sleep in place were pictured lying next to floor heating vents to stay warm.
