The airline is looking into passenger in-flight skymaps which appear to show Stansted Airport in Essex to the far side of the Thames Estuary in the rural parish of Stansted, Kent.

The error is reported to affect the airline's entire 67-strong Airbus fleet but the problem has not been replicated on pilots' navigation systems.
