easyJet passengers escorted off flight to Barcelona after suicide bomber joke

  • A passenger claimed the women were loud and abusive towards staff
  • They were allegedly verbally abusive and played loud music in the cabin
  • One of the women allegedly joked that she was a suicide bomber 

Two women had to be escorted off an easyJet flight to Spain after they allegedly swore at crew and joked about having a bomb on board, with one reportedly yelling 'we are all here for a f***ing party'.

Fellow passengers claimed the women had been drinking before the flight from Belfast to Barcelona, and became abusive towards staff and disruptive towards other travellers during the two-hour journey.

Footage captured by a passenger shows the women being removed from the plane by Spanish police officers after it touched down in the Catalonian capital.

The unidentified women, believed to be from Londonderry, travelled to Barcelona with 12 others on Wednesday morning as they celebrated a 50th birthday, the Belfast Telegraph reported.

It appears the celebration started before the plane took off around 10am, with one witness telling the newspaper: ‘When the two got on you could tell they had been drinking.’

The passenger said the women were loud and kept playing music during the flight, even though they were asked to put their speaker away.

The passenger added: ‘Then they started verbal abuse and saying “We are all here for a f***ing party”.’

One of their friends moved away from them and the pair became agitated when a flight attendant refused to serve alcohol to them.

The passenger said: ‘They shouted at her and then the brunette was joking when she was going to the toilet and said “I’m a suicide bomber, sure I am”.’

The passenger said people were visibly upset by the joke and there was talk on the plane that some children were left in tears.

He told the Belfast Telegraph that the women made rude hand gestures to crew and were extremely rude.

In the video, another woman in the party defended the pair and claimed they weren’t abusive, apparently telling one flight attendant: ‘Change your job, darling.’

While the women protests their innocence, another member of the group shushes her in an attempt to get her to be quiet.

An easyJet spokesman told MailOnline Travel: 'easyJet can confirm that flight EZY6671 from Belfast to Barcelona was met by police on arrival in Barcelona due to two passengers on board behaving in a disruptive manner.

'Whilst such incidents are rare we take them very seriously and do not tolerate abusive or threatening behaviour on board. 

'easyJet’s cabin 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.

'The safety and wellbeing of passengers and crew is always easyJet's priority.'
