I've had to buy new clothes and toiletries for me and my kids as most of it was in our bags. "The luggage still hasn't arrived and I have had nothing in the way of compensation for all the things I've had to buy since we've been back. They have told me it could take up to seven days but I don't understand why it's taking so long." Dawn was sitting at the front of the aircraft with her husband and two children, aged nine and 13, when they realised something was wrong with the plane.

"I looked out of the window and I could see smoke everywhere. My kids were terrified and now don't want to get on a plane again."

When approached for comment, a TUI spokesperson said passengers had been sent a form to fill out and 'should receive their luggage within seven working days.' Fire crews were scrambled to the arrival stand after the plane suffered a 'technical fault' and were pictured dousing the plane with water - with smoke seen bellowing out of the right engine. A TUI spokesperson confirmed the aircraft was met by the fire service following a 'technical fault' on arrival. They added that no injuries had been reported. In a previous statement, a spokesperson said: "We can confirm flight TOM2609 from Mahon to Manchester, which was operated by an airline partner, experienced a technical fault on arrival to the stand and was met by the fire service. We are in contact with the airline to get information about the incident and to confirm when the aircraft can return to service. "The safety of our passengers and crews on partner airlines always remains our highest priority. The aircraft was completely safe to land, and all passengers have been disembarked. "We understand how unsettling it can be when an aircraft is met by emergency services so we will continue to offer our full support. We’d like to apologise to all customers for the inconvenience and thank them for their patience and understanding at this time."
