Rugby player removed from easyJet flight after ‘sexually harassing’ flight attendants

A rugby player was taken off an easyJet plane after allegedly sexually harassing a female crew member.


A ‘drunk’ rugby player delayed an easyJet flight for more than 90 minutes as he was removed from the plane for allegedly sexually harassing a female flight attendant.


The man was part of a ‘raucous’ group of rugby players flying from Bristol to Belfast on Friday.


Speaking to The Sun newspaper, a fellow passenger said: “One of the men got out of his seat, when we were all supposed to have our seatbelts on, and walked down the aisle towards two female members of staff.”


“I couldn’t hear what he said to them, but one of the women said ‘I am treating this as sexual harassment.'”


Whatever was said, it was enough for the crew to call the police.


According to reports, the victim of the alleged harassment was in tears as police boarded the plane to remove the man.


Avon and Somerset Constabulary confirmed the man was not arrested.


A spokesperson for Bristol Airport said: “We want all passengers flying from Bristol Airport to have an enjoyable start to their journey, but anti-social behaviour by a minority can spoil the experience for everyone.


“Any anti-social behaviour by a passenger is not accepted by the Airport or airlines, and could result in passengers being refused travel. We will assist the police with their investigations.


“Disruptive behaviour on-board an aircraft is illegal and the worst cases can result in fines, travel bans and custodial sentences.”
