Passengers Get Rowdy on Flight from Glasgow to Ibiza

A group of rowdy passengers on a flight from Glasgow to Ibiza last week took disruptiveness to earsplitting levels as they played loud rave music and sang along at full volume.

Lindsey Archibald of the Daily Record reported the plane had not even left the ground in Glasgow, Scotland, when the passengers began singing and bothering the other people on board. The group of rowdy passengers was comprised mostly of teenagers and customers in their early 20s.

The loud music and singing didn’t endanger anyone on the flight, but it certainly didn’t sit well with the flight crew, who reprimanded the passengers over the public address system. The flight attendant said, “Ladies and gentlemen, please remain quiet. There are travelers on board with young children. Please do not swear. Thank you.”

Here is a video of the incident, via WebTV65:

The trip from Scotland to Ibiza — an island located in the Mediterranean Sea — is known for rowdy crowds, and this is not the first incident involving passengers behaving badly. As the Daily Record reported earlier this month, a man has been banned from flying with the airline after verbally attacking a flight attendant.

This route from Scotland to Ibiza is so notorious that Rich Thomaselli of TravelPulse reported in April that low-cost airline Ryanair had banned the sale of alcohol on the flights to cut down on the potential issues.
