This is the moment a hen party was forced off a plane for ‘rowdy’ behaviour, to relief of other passengers. The women had reportedly been drinking alcohol, screaming and swearing during the FR9898 Ryanair flight from Liverpool to Alicante last Thursday night. In video, which was uploaded by Josh Daley, a group of women are seen arguing with staff in the aisle, as another says ‘Sit down, sit down!’ At one point, man filming turns the camera towards his face, telling ‘This is quite funny this.’ As women leave the plane, one of them can be heard telling ‘Get your bags, we’re all getting chucked off’. Clearly relieved to be rid of them, passengers burst into applause and boo troublemakers and their friends. Passenger Katie Bridges 17 years old who was going to Spain to visit her father, described the women’s behaviour as ‘unacceptable’.
‘They were a drunken mess, shouting at each other and other passengers who told them to be quiet. On the flight, babies and small children were sitting watching that disgusting behaviour. No way to start a holiday. I could not even get up to go to the toilet because the girls would be in the aisle, fighting and shouting in each other’s faces. They had to be told to sit down on various occasions and did not listen to the staff on board’ she said. She also said that it was the worst flight she had ever been on with airline. ‘I don’t think I’ll be flying with Ryanair again. Sad to think this is only just one of the cases that the staff have to deal with day in, day out.’ Adam Hunter 23 years old who also claimed to be on flight, said pilot warned them plane could be diverted to France if they did not settle down. ‘They even had to stop the selling of alcohol to everyone’ he said. He told passengers were made to wait for over a hour on the runway at Alicante, causing him to miss his coach to Benidorm. ‘When I finally got here I saw the four individuals in the middle of the street bladdered and getting ready for a night out. It isn’t the airlines fault as they could not control the behaviour of the women on this flight, but they should not have been let out of the airport after ruining so many people’s holidays’ he added.
Other passengers described the women’s behaviour as ‘vile’, telling they were acting like ‘creatures’. Writing on Ryanair’s social media page, a passenger was quoted by the paper as telling ‘Another Ryanair flight compromised by a stag/hen party.’ They described them as ‘drunken and rowdy’, saying that people suspected of being drunk should be breathalysed. In a statement, a Ryanair spokesman told ‘The crew of this flight from Liverpool to Alicante requested police assistance upon arrival in Alicante after a number of passengers became disruptive inflight. The aircraft landed normally and police removed and detained these individuals. The safety and comfort of our customers, crew and aircraft is our number one priority and we will not tolerate unruly or disruptive behaviour at any time. This is now a matter for local police.’
