A man has been charged by police after he urinated on fellow passengers during an EasyJet jet flight from Copenhagen to Edinburgh last week.
The 26-year-old had tried to disembark from the plane shortly after it landed at the city’s airport but had been told by cabin crew to return to his seat.
Instead, the customer unzipped his trousers and proceeded to empty his bladder onto people sitting in nearby seats. The police were called to meet the passenger on the plane and he has since been charged.
According to an EasyJet spokesman, the passenger had reportedly been drinking his own alcohol after boarding the flight from Denmark.
“We can confirm that flight EZY6984 from Copenhagen to Edinburgh on 13 July was met by police on arrival in Edinburgh as a result of a passenger onboard behaving in a disruptive manner.”
“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. For the safety of all on board it is illegal for passengers to drink alcohol purchased in the airport during the flight.”
“Whilst such incidents are rare we take them very seriously, do not tolerate abusive or threatening behaviour onboard and always push for prosecution.”
“The safety and well-being of passengers and crew is always EasyJet’s priority.”
