​Ryanair Passenger Thrown Off Plane At Stansted For Having No Boarding Pass

Police officers had to remove a man who had somehow managed to board a Ryanair flight without a boarding pass. See how that turned out in the video below:

To be fair, you can see how it happened.

"Right then, got your passport?" Yeah.

"Phone?" Yep.

"Duty free vodka?" Well, duh.

"Shit magazine for the flight?" Naturally.

"Boarding Pass?" SHIT.

The passenger tried to get on the plane for a 5.20pm flight to Seville on Monday, but refused to show the cabin crew a valid boarding pass or identification.

The plane was rammed full with excited Liverpool fans heading to Spain to see their team's Champions League match.

"We sat down, everything was tickety boo and we were chilling," explained fellow passenger Martin Richards, 34, from Grantham, who was travelling with his friend to see the game.

Despite fairly chilled-out beginnings (someone remembered his shit magazine for the flight, didn't he?), it wasn't long before everyone was 'bricking it'.

"Suddenly a bloke comes up to a woman and says: 'You're sat in my seat'.

"They looked at each other's boarding passes and it became clear that the woman was sat in his seat because this man was sitting in her aisle seat.

"The man refused to show his boarding pass and a steward got involved.

"The guy was just not interested. He had his hoodie up and his sunglasses on so he looked really suspicious."

Martin said that fellow football fans then began to start chanting 'Kick him off'.

"The steward said: 'Right, final chance, show me your boarding pass or the police will come.'

"The man ignored it. The guy was sitting there, not even responding."

Apparently the chaos did unnerve a few passengers, and Martin even texted his missus to tell her he loved her.

"It sounds pathetic but you do worry in these times," said the father of two.

"He did look drunk," Martin continued. "But when I get drunk, I don't go to an airport and try to board a plane without a pass."

Eventually two police officers boarded the plane and managed to remove the shady passenger, but it was then that true mayhem ensued, as Ryanair staff had to start checking the plane for suspicious items.

"I don't know how he managed to get through effectively three checks without a boarding pass," Martin said. "With the way the world is at the moment, you just want security at airports to be watertight.

And the final kick in the nads? In all, Martin says they were delayed by an hour.

Ah, budget airlines and problems. Marriage made in heaven - or at least it would be, if the plane could actually leave the ground on time.
