Pilot Forced To Land As Abusive Passenger Is Thrown Off A Plane. Photos

An abusive woman was thrown off an easyJet flight after screaming ‘do you want me to be a prostitute’ during a bizarre foul-mouthed rant. She was headed on a girls’ holiday from Manchester to Paphos, Cyprus, but after launching a tirade of abuse at fellow flyers and crew members the plane was diverted.

The captain was forced to land in Athens, Greece, on Friday night and four passengers were thrown off for being abusive.

A video taken by one passenger shows crew surrounding one rowdy young woman with a Liverpool accent – who says she is 23 and from Birkenhead.

Fellow passengers can then be heard cheering and clapping as the woman is taken off the plane.

It is believed the women were arrested by police in Athens.

The easyjet service, flight EZY1975, continued on its way to Cyprus. The delay meant a scheduled return trip to Manchester had to be postponed until Saturday as the crew had run out of hours they are legally allowed to work.


Fellow passengers reported that the woman had been drunk before they boarded the flight and that they had smuggled their own drinks on board.

A spokesman for easyJet said: ‘EasyJet can confirm that flight EZY1975 from Manchester to Paphos on 23 March was diverted to Athens and met by the police on arrival where four passengers were offloaded as a result of disruptive behaviour onboard and the flight continued to Paphos once the passengers were offloaded.

‘EasyJet’s crew are trained to assess and evaluate all situations and to act quickly and appropriately to ensure that the safety of the flight and other passengers is not compromised at any time.
