EasyJet flight cancelled after passengers treat plane ‘like a nightclub’

An EasyJet flight was cancelled after a number of passengers were accused of treating the aircraft “like a nightclub”.


An EasyJet flight from Bristol to Prague did not leave the runway after “disruptive” passengers treated the plane like “a nightclub”.


Avon and Somerset police removed a small group of passengers and arrested a 32-year-old man for a public order offence.


Bristol Airport’s police team tweeted: “Disappointing behaviour of a few who ruined a Friday flight from Bristol Airport, not just for their mates, but for the 140+ who’s flight was cancelled as a result of their follow-up actions. It’s an aircraft – not a nightclub.”


An airline spokesmen said: “Easyjet was required to cancel flight EZY6267 from Bristol to Prague on Friday due to a group of passengers behaving disruptively on board which caused a delay.


“Whilst such incidents are rare, we take them very seriously, do not tolerate abusive or threatening behaviour on board and always push for prosecution.”


EasyJet said passengers were given the option of transferring their flight or receiving a refund.
