Chaos erupted on an easyJet plane when a group of 30 “drunken” passengers caused major disruption, with one threatening to “urinate on the floor”. The flight bound for Malaga from Bristol Airport on May 11 was delayed after the captain was forced to abort take-off.

The pilot halted the plane moments before take-off and returned it to the terminal. The disruption arose from a large group of young men who refused to comply with instructions, including remaining seated and from not using the bathroom during take-off.

Passengers endured an hour-long delay while authorities intervened, escorting the unruly group off the aircraft. Holidaymakers had already been delayed by an hour prior to boarding. 

Once the problem passengers were removed, the cabin exploded in cheers as the plane was finally ready to leave. EasyJet addressed the incident, confirming their commitment to maintaining a safe and secure environment onboard.

The steward’s intervention prompted further defiance from the group, resulting in the plane’s abrupt halt and subsequent return to the terminal.

As the disruptive passengers were escorted off the aircraft, baggage crews were summoned to remove their belongings, causing additional delays. However, the pilot lightened the mood with a humorous announcement, offering seat upgrades to those onboard.

“They were being loud at the gate,” passenger Linda Sweeden told BristolLive. According to Ms Sweeden, who was returning home to southern Spain, the situation escalated when the plane commenced taxiing for take-off.

“Suddenly, one of the men at the front stood up and started shouting: ‘If you don’t let me go to the toilet, I’m going to p*** all over the floor!'” she said.

A spokesperson for easyJet confirmed they were taking the incident seriously. A spokesman told BristolLive: “easyJet can confirm that flight EZY7004 from Bristol to Malaga on May 11 returned to stand due to some passengers behaving disruptively. The aircraft was met by police and the passengers were offloaded before the flight continued to Malaga.

“Our cabin crew are trained to assess 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.

“Whilst such incidents are rare, we take them very seriously and do not tolerate abusive or threatening behaviour onboard. The safety and wellbeing of passengers and crew is always easyJet’s priority,” he added.
