Hungarian police officers stormed an EasyJet aircraft at the Budapest international airport because of a British man acting weird, and aggressively. They removed him from the jet, but it needed to make an emergency landing due to the issue.
An aggressive and probably drunk passenger
A Sheffield dad made a video about what happened and complemented the flight crew because they handled an aggressive passenger exquisitely. The plane took off in Manchester, and its destination was Antalya in Türkiye, but it could not reach the seashore city.
According to the British news outlet The Star, passengers spent two hours on the ground in Budapest because their flight made an emergency landing. The move was necessary because of the aggressive behaviour of a man. David Hector, who travelled with his family on board, told the newspaper that “the man had way too much to drink and became aggressive with the stewards. The flight had to be re-routed to Budapest for an emergency landing, local police were waiting for him at the runway.”
Mr Hector recorded when the Hungarian police stormed the plane to take the disruptive passenger away. He and his fellow passengers cheered the officers. After the action, the jet was refuelled and could continue its journey to the Turkish riviera with a 2-hour-long delay.
EasyJet crew acted professionally
Mr Hector added “it was obviously annoying and we were travelling with two young children. Like a lot of families, the situation wasn’t ideal… I commend the flight crew on how the situation was dealt with discreetly and professionally.”
An EasyJet spokesperson confirmed the emergency landing and declared: “EasyJet can confirm that the flight EZY2139 from Manchester to Antalya on March 27 diverted to Budapest and was met by police due to a passenger behaving disruptively onboard. 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”, the statement concludes.

What is it with Brits and their drinking??? These stories almost invariably involve Brits and alcohol, and they’re quite frequent! I know Britain is a bleak place in many ways so I can understand getting hammered there, but when you’re jetting off to a sunny, relaxing break, surely you want to be sober and in full control of your senses so as to be able to savor the experience. This clown should be taken to the cleaners for the costs incurred by the airline and the other passengers who lost several hours of their vacation time.
Cannot expect nothing more from these people.
