A GROUP of between 25 and 30 men flying from Cardiff to Alicante reportedly caused chaos and upset other passengers on a Vueling flight.
It is alleged that the rowdy men boarded the plane whilst making jokes about the plane crashing which upset some of the younger passengers. One of the group also threw a small bottle of gin towards the front of the plane which narrowly missed the head of a toddler.
Esther Jenkins, 44, from Pontypridd told a Welsh newspaper that “the group were noisy throughout the flight, using bad language. As the flight went on, they became louder. A steward did ask them to keep the noise down on two occasions, however, alcohol was continued to be served to them. It got to the point where there was no beer left so they were then being served wine and shorts.”
The group were asked on several occasions to quieten down but were either abusive or ignored the requests. The group also played loud music as the plane touched down in Alicante.
A spokeswoman from Vueling said: “We are sorry to hear about Mrs. Jenkins’ experience on board. Our crew is trained to analyse and identify abusive behaviour from passengers and we can assure that they had the situation under control in this occasion. We always try to provide customers with the best possible experience when travelling with us and we apologise if our service fell below expectations.”
