What a kick in the butt!
A Ryanair passenger was captured on video being hauled off a plane by UK cops after he was shamed by the crew over a public-address system for smoking in the bathroom.
“One of the flight attendants could smell smoke coming from the toilet. They took all his details and then announced it to the whole plane,” a passenger told the news outlet.
“I was really pleased because they’d named and shamed the person. If you’re willing to have a smoke and put 180 souls on board lives at risk, then you should be named and shamed,” the man continued.
He said he and his two daughters were among the many unpleased families on the flight.
“There were a few people not happy on that plane, I’ll tell you,” he told the Manchester Evening News.
“I was with my two daughters who are seven and ten,” he continued. “They were pretty frightened.”
Footage shows the man, clad in a T-shirt, shorts, a baseball cap and flip-flops, being ushered off the plane and onto the tarmac upon landing.
“The crew of this flight from Palma to Manchester called ahead for police assistance after a passenger was found smoking onboard,” a Ryanair rep told the outlet.
“The passenger was removed from the aircraft by local police upon landing at Manchester Airport,” according to the airline, which did not press charges.
