A DRUNKEN member of a stag party nearly hit a toddler on the head with a bottle of gin on a flight from Cardiff Airport to Alicante.

When others on board complained the rowdy group shouted: “We are on f**king holidays too” and continued to drain the drinks trolley.

The party of 20-30 men were swearing and joking about the plane crashing – scaring the young flyers on board.

Despite being told to to keep the noise down by flight attendants, the group, believed to be from Treherbert , continued to be served alcohol and were even given spirits when the plane had run out of beer.

Esther Jenkins, 44, from Pontypridd , was among the passengers on the flight on July 18 who had to put up with the behaviour.

She said: “The group were noisy throughout the flight, using bad language in their every day conversation. As the flight went on, they became louder.

“A steward did ask them to keep the noise down on two occasions, however, alcohol was continued to be served to them.

“It got to the point where there was no beer left so they were then being served wine and shorts.

“I was aware of a miniature bottle of gin being thrown down the aeroplane narrowly missing a young toddler in the aisle. I would like to think that this was not thrown intentionally.

“At one point, there was a discussion going on about the flight crashing which scared my 10 year old daughter who is a frequent flyer.

“About halfway through the flight, one of the group did say to some of the others about watching their language due to there being young children on the flight to which he had the reply ‘We are on f**king holidays too’.

“They also had a large speaker with them and thought it would be funny to start playing music as we landed.”


When Mrs Jenkins complained about the group’s behaviour, Vueling told her their crew were trained to “analyse and identify” dangerous situations from passengers and they had the “situation under control to assure other passengers’ safety.

She said: “It’s not about safety, it’s about being courteous to other passengers. Drunken and anti social behaviour is not acceptable on a flight.”

Vueling has been asked to comment.
