Police remove group of drunk passengers from Ryanair flight to Tenerife before it takes off
Another incident has happened on a flight destined for Tenerife this afternoon (Friday), this time with Ryanair at Manchester airport where fifteen drunken people have been removed from the plane before it even took off after cabin crew needed police to assist with the rowdy group.
Flight FR4332 was scheduled to depart Manchester at 1:50pm this afternoon, but was delayed meaning passengers had to spend three extra hours in the airport before leaving.
Unfortunately it seems that one group took advantage of this to start their holiday drinking early, and have then had a problem when the flight had left the stand and was getting ready to taxi to the runway.
According to other passengers on the plane, the group of women who were going on a hen party, were rowdy and causing problems with cabin crew as well as disrupting other passengers, to the extent that the plane returned to the stand and they requested the assistance of the police to remove them from the plane, refusing to take off with them on board in case they endangered the safety of others.
Apparently when the police came on board, the group didn’t take to it kindly and only left making their feelings felt towards airline staff, causing a further delay to the flight for other passengers.
Eventually the plane did take off at just after 7:00pm, over five hours late, and is scheduled to land at 11:09pm tonight (Friday) without the rowdy passengers on board.
However, let’s not forget this affects people’s travel plans, holiday time, and those waiting in Tenerife to catch this plane home tonight, which may not now go due to crew hours and no fly hours during the night on short haul flights, meaning huge disruption for hundreds of people.
