Funmi Oyatogun, a travel enthusiast on Monday night, advised Nigerians against booking a seat on Air Peace’s 7:30pm flight from Abuja to Lagos, saying the airline engages in false adverts.
She blamed Air Peace for being the reason one of her friends was picked up by the police while on her way home from the airport. Funmi said in her own case, she was lucky to have met a police who accepted boarding passes as valid reason for late-night movement.
Plesse, do not book the Air Peace Abj-Lag 11:30pm flight, falsely advertised as 7:30pm. Every night, they pretend the flight has been moved to 8:30pm then 9:50pm. Then every night, it leaves at 11:30pm.
And there’s curfew in Lagos!
Don’t say I didn’t tell you.

The tweet had garnered over 4,800 retweets as of the time of filing this report, prompting the management of Air Peace to offer their apologises to Funmi.
Our sincere apologies Funmi. Please note that we will never intentionally disrupt our flights to inconvenience you or any of our customers. This is due to our uncompromising stance on safety as we strive to give all our customers the best flight experience. We are truly sorry.

Meanwhile past and present passengers used the opportunity to recount their horrible experiences with Airpeace.
Errm, Airpeace just texted that they’ve moved a 2:30pm Abuja to Lagos flight to 9:50pm. They better not delay till 11:30pm. Me I will fight o— Oluwasogo (@SogoOwolabi) March 22, 2021
