Couple Say They Had Flight From Hell After Being On Plane With Dozens Of Drunks
A couple of passengers on-board a Ryanair flight have branded the journey 'hell', as drunken festival-goers shouted, spewed up and completely ignored crew members.
Twenty-four-year old Aneta Zukow, 24, and boyfriend, Piotr Nesan, 32, were on the flight from Manchester to Zadar, Croatia, which was packed full of people heading to the Hard Island festival.
In footage recorded by Aneta, the rowdy passengers can be heard chanting and shouting; elsewhere someone threw up all over himself before passing out.
Aneta says the men repeatedly ignored the 'fasten seatbelt' signs and were shouting at crew members as they attempted to give the safety demonstration.
"It was like being in a jungle with wild animals," Aneta said. "It was hell on earth. It was the worst flight of my life. It was absolutely appalling.
"The only way I can describe it is like being in a nightclub without the music 10,000ft above the ground.

"They were shouting, chanting and the crew could not calm them down. They were uncontrollable. No one could calm them down.
"It was completely unacceptable. All of them were drunk. The cabin crew threatened to throw them off several times. They were basically having a party on the plane. They were animals.
"It was obvious they were drunk when they boarded the plane. No one was allowed to buy alcohol for the whole flight because they were so drunk.
"It was unacceptable. The police came on when we landed before anyone was allowed to get off. Three of them were taken away. They were being arrested. It was a horrible experience."
According to Aneta the men were already smashed before the flight, stumbling around Manchester airport drunk.
She claims the three-and-a-half-hour flight was delayed by an hour, as even before take-off the men were playing up.
Once landed in Croatia, police were already waiting for some of the men.
A spokesperson from Ryanair said: "The crew of this flight from Manchester to Zadar requested police assistance upon arrival after a number of passengers became disruptive.
"The aircraft landed normally and police removed the individuals. The safety and comfort of our customers, crew and aircraft is our number one priority and this is now a matter for local police."
