Crewmembers working on the upcoming James Bond movie Spectre are alleged to have carried on, acting like generally entitled rock and roll gods on a charted Airbus flight to Mexico recently.
The Daily Mail’s Caroline Graham and Chris Hastings report on a raucous affair aboard the Airbus 330, which was traveling from Stansted Airport in Essex to Mexico City about two weeks ago.
If true, the crew threw themselves a party that would put any classic antics from Ozzy Osbourne or Keith Richards to shame.
Now before we take a break for the respectively refined and dignified trailer for the upcoming movie, let’s just say that the crew is alleged to have engaged in public urination and vomiting, which should bring back some memories for the frat brothers in the house.
The report states Hi Fly, the company chartered to make the International flight, sent a report to Eon, which serves as the production company for the movie.
The details within the report are, well, compelling.
Here is a brief breakdown on some of the more damning allegations via The Daily Mail:
• “Removed a safety pin from one of the aircraft's doors – which experts say could have resulted in a mid-air disaster;"
• "Vomited and urinated in the aisles;"
• "Flouted the aircraft's strict no-smoking ban;"
• "Verbally abused cabin crew and other passengers.”
In a not-so-shocking turn, the report alleges that “excessive drinking” played a part in the riotous affair amid the normally serene skies.
The report continues with a cringeworthy statement: “Last night, a worker at Toluca airport in Mexico City said the mayhem had left the interior of the plane looking like a 'pack of wild animals' had gone through it. The source added that vomit had been left inside the toilet and on the floor outside.”
According to the report, a firm was called in to clean the plane for a cost of about $1,481. As for Daniel Craig, Christoph Waltz or any other cast members, they were said to have not been on the flight.
In the end, the crew is being granted a return flight after they are done with a shoot that started on March 18 with a crucial caveat: “The airline has agreed to fly the crew back to Britain only on condition that no alcohol is served or consumed on board.”
Eon, for its part, reportedly apologized for what it deemed “intolerable behavior.”
We shall see shortly if the some 150 crewmembers can make it back to Britain with minimal vomiting on the plane, because shaken and stirred should only relate to a nice martini, not the delicate emotions of the staff trying to work a chartered flight.
