An Ibiza pilot had to leave his cockpit to give boozy passengers a bollocking

If there’s one thing you can count on this world, it’s that there will be drunk AF people on a flight to Ibiza. And one pilot has had enough.

In possibly the best impression of a year 9 social studies teacher we’ve ever seen, the Jet2 captain read out the riot act to rowdy passengers on a flight from Edinburgh after a couple had already been led away by police.

Caught on camera, he said: “People want a good holiday, a nice flight and not have any trouble, loud raucous behavior and drunkenness.

“Now I don’t want to talk to people as if they’re naughty children, that won’t work, but what I can tell you is just for company policy, if you get drunk on this flight, we’ll divert, we’ll put you off the plane and we’ll give you the bill for the diversion.”

The passenger that filmed the speech told The Sun there was one girl on the plane so drunk she “could barely look straight”.

Drinking in airports has been a hot topic recently with Ryanair suggesting a two-drink minimum for passengers waiting to board a flight. Jet2 are the only airline to not serve alcohol on flights, perhaps after someone had their ear bitten off during a flight to Ibiza in 2015.

Authorities in Ibiza have also called for ‘dry flights’ in the past.

In other airline-related news, an easyJet pilot was recently convicted after admitting to flying a plane while suffering the after-effects of taking ecstasy.

Also, never forget the time Scottish holidaymakers delivered a raucous rendition of MK's remix of Storm Queen's 'Look Right Through' on a Jet2 flight bound for Ibiza.
