Manchester - Passengers likened a Ryanair flight to ‘a nightclub without the music’ after a group of drunken Britons wreaked havoc and vomited in the aisles.
The cabin crew were forced to call police after they struggled to control a group of young men behaving ‘like animals’ on the ‘hellish’ plane trip from Manchester to Croatia on Saturday.
Several were arrested when the plane landed at its destination in Zadar following the three-and-a-half-hour journey. A video showed the men shouting and chanting on the flight, which had to be delayed. They also drowned out the safety demo.
In the footage one drunk passenger can be seen slumped in his seat, with sick over his clothes and in the aisles, while a grinning friend holds a bin bag for him to throw up into. The clip also shows a female flight attendant arguing with a member of the group, before adding: "We’ve called the police, you’re being arrested." Up to 70 passengers on board are thought to have been heading for the Hard Island festival on the island of Pag, off the west coast of Croatia.
The five-day event, which began on Sunday, is billed as a holiday for "hard dance lovers".
