Tourists described a nightmarish trip after the broken air conditioner caused the passengers to "collapse" on a flight, and their replacement was diverted when they started smoking.

Families aboard the Virgin Atlantic flight from Orlando to London Gatwick were "stressed, nauseous and disoriented" due to the failure of the air conditioning.

The passengers reportedly "collapsed" after sitting on the asphalt for two hours in uncomfortably warm conditions before team members finally decided to cancel the flight.

The travelers were boarded in a second plane after spending the night in a nearby hotel; however, three hours from London, a "strong smell" of smoke contaminated the plane.

Tourists, who were supposed to arrive at 8.10am in London, are now stranded at the Shannon airport in Ireland while waiting to return to the mainland.

"The general mood is that everyone is tired and everyone wants to go home," said passenger Stuart Rust.

The drama began on Wednesday when the flight was originally supposed to leave Orlando at 8.35 p.m.

The passengers boarded normally, but about two hours later, people reportedly began to faint due to the suffocating heat.

"There were people who collapsed," said passenger Abigail Kent at the Mirror.

Stuart, 37, a sales manager in southwestern London, had just spent a two-week vacation at Disney with his wife and three children, ages 20, 12 and eight.

Tourists took social media to describe the nightmarish journey after the broken air conditioner caused the "collapse" of the passengers on a flight, while their replacement was diverted when they started smoking.

They were informed that the flight would not leave that day and, instead, they were placed in nearby hotels and ordered to return to the airport the next day.

Stuart says that when he boarded the new flight, everyone applauded.

But he added: & # 39; Some people had a bad feeling. We boarded the plane yesterday. It was planned to leave at 6 in the afternoon and it was the same plane and the air conditioning worked well. "

However, this was not the last drama for Stuart and his traveling companions as the plane deviated before it could make its intended destination.

"We had three hours of flight before landing in Gatwick and you could smell the smoke," said Stuart.

Then, the captain told the tourists that they would land in Shannon due to the smell of smoke as a precaution and that they would receive firemen and ambulances upon arrival.

He added: "We just want to get home and it's very ingrained. It has not put a damper on the holidays, but it has left a bitter taste. "

Stuart praised Virgin's staff, who said he kept them updated while distributing water and food.

But for Abigail, 28, she is eating time with her sick mother and says she has left her feeling "stressed, nauseated and disoriented."

A Virgin Atlantic spokesman said: "Our VS1050 flight from Orlando to London Gatwick was diverted to Shannon as a precautionary measure after smoke reports on board.

"The safety of our customers and crew is always our top priority and we are now working hard to get our customers to their final destination as quickly as possible.

"We would like to apologize for the interruption of your trip and thank you for your patience."

The additional flight provided by Virgin Atlantic has now left Shannon and will land at Gatwick in the next hour or so.
