A PLANE flying to Ibiza from Belfast was forced to make an unscheduled stop in France over a passenger’s “disruptive” and “aggressive” drunken behaviour.
The man, who had also brought a blow up sex doll on board with him, was met by French police at Toulouse airport.
Jet2 said that the man’s behaviour was “disgraceful and deplorable” due to the fact he had been “consuming alcohol illicitly”.
Another passenger on board the plane tweeted that the man had a blow up doll with him on the flight – in front of young children.
They wrote: “Nice one guys! Together with a blow up doll at 7am in front of my kids & long queues. Way to go!”
A passenger told BBC Northern Ireland that the man was part of a “large stag group” which became “quite rowdy” on board the plane.
The passenger, who was on the flight with her baby, said: “The captain introduced himself and gave a really stern warning and reiterated that only alcohol bought on board could be consumed on flight and duty free can’t be consumed.
“Passengers couldn’t get off the plane and it was roasting.
“All the babies and kids on the plane were so unsettled. Six hours in total when it should have been a three hour flight.”
A spokesperson from Jet2 told us: “The customer, Mr. McDowell, travelling with a group was aggressive to both crew and fellow customers on board, something which will not be tolerated.
