Passenger threatens Singapore Airlines cabin crew.
A Singapore Airlines passenger was escorted off the plane by police after angrily demanding a bottle of water from cabin crew, when the plane landed at Singapore Changi Airport.
The bleached blonde haired man, who donned a baseball cap, stormed to the front of the economy class cabin as the plane taxied its way to the terminal.
In a video shared on TikTok, the man can be seen complaining that he had been asking for water for two hours before a drink was handed to him.
“You actually think I’m going to listen, right? Why don’t you get me water you f***ing idiot. Get me water,” he shouts in a North American accent.
“F*** off, I’m not interested, do you think I’m interested in your f***ing call.
“F*** off, because I’m going to push you over. Get some water.”
The unruly traveller can even be heard mocking the Asian flight attendant’s accent by mimicking his replies.
The post, which has had over 1.5 million views, has since gone viral.
“On 8 Nov. 2022, on SQ711 landed at Singapore Terminal 2 from Bangkok this crazy passenger threatened to push over the sq crew if he does not give him water. The seat belt sign is still on and he suppose to be seated. Wasted all the passenger time for the ground staff security to take him off the plane,” the video caption reads.
An auxiliary police officer arrived on the scene to escort the man off of the plane.
A spokesperson for Singapore Airlines confirmed the incident in a statement.
“The passenger also did not comply with safety instructions from the cabin crew, and caused annoyance and inconvenience to the other passengers on board. The passenger was handed over to the auxiliary police upon arrival at Singapore Changi Airport,” they said.
An individual who threatens or harasses another person can reportedly be fined up to $5,000 and be imprisoned for up to six months, according to Singapore’s Protection from Harassment Act.
