Two drunk women forced a landing of a British Airways jet after they got carried away with some Malibu rum. The British Airways jet was traveling from Gatwick Airport in London to Tunisia, and the Daily Mail reported on Jan. 3 that the women's behavior was so bad that the plane was diverted to Lyon, France.
The two drunk women who forced the landing of the flight, ages 50 and 43, allegedly swore in front of children on the flight, hid and smoked in the bathroom, refused to return to their seats and ultimately marched up toward the cockpit thinking they would talk to the captain. One passenger says that the women even told one flight attendant they would track down the attendant's family and kill them.
The drunk women forced the landing with their outrageous behavior, and ABC News notes that the women were handed off to French police once the flight landed in Lyon. The rest of the crew and passengers were able to continue on their way to Tunisia while the women spent the night in jail cells. The next day the women were put on a return flight home and they may be banned from British Airways.
A British Airways spokesperson says that their crew and customers deserve an enjoyable and safe experience aboard their planes, and they don't tolerate the kind of behavior the drunk women displayed. So far the drunk women who forced the landing have not been identified.
