EasyJet has grounded its entire fleet of 344 aircraft.

It waived the fees it normally charges to change flights and is offering vouchers for future travel.

But many suffering cash woes after losing their jobs due to the coronavirus crisis say they need money now.

The airline has removed the “refund” button from its website and is directing customers to a busy call centre.

But many are worried travel firms offering credit notes could go under taking their money with them.

Meanwhile, airlines and officials are still working to get tens of thousands of Brits stranded abroad home.
