Disgruntled passengers whose Cameroon-bound flight was forced to return to Brussels Airport blocked access to a gate, causing disruption for fellow travelers, on Thursday, December 8, local media reported.

The Brussels Airlines aircraft had returned due to a technical issue on Wednesday evening, HLN reported.

The stranded travelers began their protest when they “discovered that they couldn’t continue their journey on Thursday morning because the flight was fully booked,” according to an airline spokeswoman quoted by the Aviation 24 site.
