Second UK flight has police waiting for drunk passengers smoking on board
It seems that more and more mindless Brits don’t actually want to spend their holiday in the Canary Islands, choosing to be disruptive on their flight meaning that police are meeting them on landing where they are escorted off the plane and subsequently sent back to the UK where they can be fined up to £10,000 depending on their actions.
Following yesterday morning's easyJet flight that had to be diverted to Lanzarote because of ‘extremely aggressive behaviour’ of eight passengers on board, a second easyJet flight from Luton to Fuerteventura also reported problems.
According to reports from Air Traffic Control, the crew of flight UX2311 asked for priority landing and police presence due to the actions of two passengers who were smoking and drinking out of bottles on the plane, despite their requests to stop, then were ‘playing’ with emergency life jackets and other safety materials on board.
Very often drunken situations occur when flights are delayed and passengers spend more time in the bar at the airport, but this flight was only delayed by half an hour from departing Luton and the pair were drinking duty-free purchases.
As is the protocol, Air Traffic Control cleared the flight path and the police intervened upon landing, and the two culprits will now be sent home to enjoy their Fuerteventura holiday back in Luton.
