‘Comatose’ Ryanair passenger kicked off flight after ‘abusing hen do and cabin crew’

A 'DRUNK' man was removed from a Ryanair flight after he reportedly shouted abuse at passengers on a hen do as well as member of staff on board.

Police were called in after he was told to ‘calm down’ by cabin crew multiple times throughout the flight, but refused.

Once the plane, flying from Dublin to Faro in Portugal, had landed, local officers were on the scene to escort the man off the flight.

After being confronted by police, the man, who was allegedly downing vodka-redbulls throughout the journey, refused to leave with the officers.

He can be heard in the footage asking “what’s happening?” and telling the officer to “get your hand off me”.

When they asked him to locate his bag and his boarding pass, the passenger, who was described as ‘comatose’, placed his hand on the police officer’s chest only for it to be slapped away.

Eventually the man is forced off the plane by the cop, who pushes the back of the reveller’s neck as he is ushered down the aisle.

Deborah Martin, who filmed the incident which occurred on May 2, said: “One guy was out of his mind. He was screaming and shouting and being abusive.

“He didn’t know his own name. He didn’t understand what was going on when the police arrive. He didn’t know where his boarding pass was. He was comatose.

“But they had their own stash of drink so he still had a plastic cup in his hand and was downing it in one go. He had about four drinks as we were coming into land.” She said.

A Ryanair spokesman said: “This flight from Dublin to Faro (May 2) requested police assistance upon landing after a passenger became disruptive in-flight.

“The aircraft landed normally and police removed and detained this individual.

“The safety and comfort of our customers, crew and aircraft is our number one priority. This is now a matter for local police.”
