An Easyjet crew was reduced to tears after two sets of stag-dos wreaked havoc on a flight to Tenerife.

Staff on board a flight from Luton to Tenerife last week were left upset after a group of passengers misbehaved during the four-and-a-half hour flight to the popular holiday destination.


The captain reportedly became aware that two stag parties boarded the plane and warned passengers to “behave themselves”.

Duncan Young, a passenger on the flight, told The Mirror: “My wife and I were sitting in the front seats by the head steward onboard and we could hear from the outset that the group of lads had smuggled alcohol on board and were ‘going for it’ in a big way. They were already intoxicated.”

Young, 56, from Hertfordshire, revealed passengers were “swearing, taking photos of the crew and physically stopping them taking away their alcohol”.

He added: “Two of the four stewards came to the front of the plane [and] were close to tears and visibly upset by it all… It was a miserable situation.”

Despite the announcement, passengers continued “swearing, taking photos of the crew and physically stopping them taking away their alcohol”.

Members of staff reportedly decided to halt access to alcohol.

Flight crew also met more than 15 times to discuss the situation.

Passengers were supposedly told to remain seated and urged not to undo their seatbelts as “authorities were boarding the plane” in Tenerife.

At least 10 passengers were hauled off the flight and the head steward handed over the passports to the authorities.

The captain later issued an apology to remaining passengers and at least one flight attendant was shaking by the end of the journey.

A spokesperson for Easyjet also said the flight was “met by police on arrival due to a group of passengers behaving disruptively onboard”.

They added: “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.

“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.”
