On a recent flight from Barcelona to Kiev, a drunken passenger let loose on other travelers on the plane, refusing to sit next to “foreigners” and going on a racist rampage. Other passengers called her out for her poor behavior by reporting the story on social media, including a video of the incident.
An unnamed female passenger on a recent flight from Barcelona to Kiev is currently detained by police because of a drunken racist rampage. According to reports, the passenger bought a bottle of whiskey at the duty-free shop and drank the entire thing before the flight. Once sufficiently drunk, she began a racist tirade which included trying to segregate the plane because she refused to sit by foreigners. She physically lashed out at other passengers as well. It took three crew members to restrain her.
“She decided that foreigners flying with her should not remain in the cabin any longer,” one passenger said on social media, reported by The Sun. “Just because they were foreigners.”
The story of the incident broke on social media when a passenger took a video of the woman’s rant and posted it online alongside a message: “If you provoke a dangerous situation, attack passengers, injure people around you, make them anxious—please do not think that your actions will remain unknown.”
Flight attendant Lidiya Polyanskaya, a former TV announcer, was eventually able to calm the woman down and defuse the situation.
“When the stewardess Lidiya Polyanskaya said in her professional TV presenter’s voice ‘Now you calm down!’—even I calmed down,” a passenger told The Sun.
