British men taken off Ibiza flight for abusive behaviour

IT wasn’t the best start to their holidays for five British men who were escorted from their flight to Spain by Guardia Civil after being abusive to staff.
Spanish police were waiting for the group when their EasyJet flight to Ibiza touched down after the pilot radioed ahead that the five had been ‘abusing’ cabin staff for nearly the whole duration of the two-and-a-half hour flight from Bristol, UK.
The reason? It would appear they took exception to a limit of just one alcoholic drink each that was being enforced on board.
Unwilling to accept that with good grace, it is alleged they became abusive and threatened members of the cabin crew with the abuse carrying on throughout the flight.
The crew reported the matter to the captain, who made sure there was a chilly reception for them when they arrived at Ibiza.
EasyJet said that it has a duty to ensure the safety of all onboard its planes. Abusive or threatening behaviour aboard a plane is not tolerated and the company always pushes for prosecution of those guilty of such behaviour.
It has emerged that there has been a 40 per cent rise in alcohol related incidents on UK flights between April 2014 and March 2015. In that period there were 271 incidents reported, compared to 190 in the same period the year before.
