Police were called to McCarran International Airport in Las Vegas after a stag party of 20 men trashed a Thomas Cook Airlines flight and left the other passengers onboard terrified.
According to the Daily Mail, the Thomas Cook Airlines flight was en route from Manchester, England, to McCarran International Airport in Las Vegas when witnesses claim the men began to act “disgracefully” throughout the 10-hour journey.
An unnamed witness told police and local media that the group of male passengers were drinking heavily throughout the flight, began blocking aisles, spilling alcohol on other passengers, threatening members of the crew and trashing the cabin.
Police met the plane when it arrived in Las Vegas, and the airline banned one of the men from traveling on the Thomas Cook Airlines flight back to England. For the rest of the men involved in the incident, they were forced to sign good behavior agreements—saying they wouldn’t drink during the trip to Manchester—in order to make their return flight.
“We're extremely sorry to our customers who were impacted by the disruptive behavior on this flight,” a Thomas Cook Airlines spokesperson told the Daily Mail. “Safety is our priority and we don't tolerate disruptive behavior on our planes. While such severe events are rare, our crew are well trained and handled this situation extremely professionally.”
