Pilot Reprimands Rowdy Passengers on Ibiza flight

Jet2 Plane in Flight

Passengers were stunned when an angry pilot stormed out of the cockpit on an Ibiza-bound flight to shout at the passengers regarding their rowdy behaviour.

He warned passengers that aggressive behaviour will not be tolerated, and pointed out that ‘A lot of you think this is a party bus, but it is not’. Most passengers reacted with cheers and a round of applause.

The flight, from Edinburg Airport, was already delayed by 40 minutes due to passengers drinking heavily, and a man was ejected from the flight due to drunken and antisocial behaviour.

The pilot warned that if the flight had to be diverted to deal with other rowdy passengers, they would be charged for the diversion.

A Jet 2 spokesman said ‘We can confirm the captain made the decision to offload a male passenger from our Edinburgh flight LS805 to Ibiza on Saturday 26th August.

‘This was due to his increasingly anti-social and aggressive behaviour.

‘As a family friendly airline the safety and welfare of our customers and staff is always our number one priority, as our captain demonstrated on this occasion.’

A BBC Panorama documentary has revealed that incidences of drunken or antisocial behaviour have risen by 50% in the last year on British flights and at British Airports. Panorama obtained figures from 18 out of 20 UK police forces with airports in their jurisdiction. The figures show an increase from 255 incidents in 2016 up to 387 in the following year.

Big thanks for the £304.70 transferred to my bank account today. My claim related to a three-leg flight from Norwich UK to Phoenix USA via Schiphol. The CAA suggested I had a good case but could do nothing because the delay occurred within Dutch jurisdiction. I twice did battle with KLM/Delta myself but they would not budge. Another claims firm tried but threw in the towel. So congratulations to Claim4Flights for taking it on and winning – and for getting the money transferred into my bank account within two days of notification. Very impressed!
