Irish woman denied a drink during flight to Heathrow rants at Air India staff

A 50-year-old woman has been arrested for abusing Air India staff on a flight from Mumbai to London after she was denied alcohol on the plane. 

The business class passenger, who is reportedly Irish, reportedly demanded to speak to the pilot after cabin crew denied her another bottle of wine as she was ‘very drunk’. 

Video shows the blonde-haired barefoot woman, who claims to be a human rights lawyer, swearing at crew, threatening to ‘p*** on them’ in court, and calling a female staff member an ‘Indian f***ing money-grabbing b*****d’.

The shocking incident took place on an Air India flight from Mumbai to London Heathrow last Saturday.

The footage sees the woman, hurling abuse at a crew member who is reportedly one of the pilots, shouting: ‘I work for all you f***ing people…

‘The f***ing Rohingyas, the f***ing people of all Asia, for you, I’m an international criminal lawyer. 

‘Don’t get any money for it by the way. But you won’t give me a f***ing glass of wine, is that correct?’

She also claims to be a ‘leader of the f***ing boycott movement’, clapping in the air in front of the crewmember, before adding: ‘If I say “boycott” – f***ing Air India, done.

‘Do you understand me? You can’t give me a wee bottle of wine?’

Attack: The 50-year-old attacks a female member of staff, threatening to take her to court unless she is given a bottle of wine, claiming to be a f***ing international lawyer and a barrister’

The man remains calm throughout her shocking tirade, after which she turns on another crewmember, asking them if they are writing a report about her.

‘F*** off! I’m a f***ing international criminal lawyer and a barrister. You will be p***ed on in court!’

She then calls the female crewmember an ‘Indian f***ing moneygrabbing b*****d’ before walking off back to her seat, shouting that she will ‘turn you inside f***ing out, you f***ing stupid c***s!

‘Give me a bottle of wine and game over!’ 

Otherwise, she claims, she will cause issues for the staff member upon landing, however the woman appears to be too inebriated to remember where they are flying to. 

Caught on camera: Fellow business class passengers also got an earful, with the woman accusing them of not ‘standing up against injustice’

The video clip ends with the 50-year-old having a rant at her fellow business class passengers for not ‘standing up against injustice’.

Another video showing the continuation of the argument, which has been shared on social media by local journalist Tarun Shukla, hears the woman claiming to be the lawyer ‘for the Palestinian people’.

‘So, you think I’m scared when you threaten me with lawyers? Also, Irish Republican Army. You’ll be f***ing shot. All you had to do was to give me a f***ing drink.’

London Metropolitan Police has confirmed that the woman was taken into custody at Heathrow Airport upon landing.

‘At approximately 1.30pm on Saturday, 10 November, a 50-year-old woman was arrested after an Air India flight had landed at Heathrow Airport,’ a police spokesperson told MailOnline.

‘She was arrested on suspicion of racially aggravated public order, common assault and drunk and disorderly and taken to a west London police station. 

‘She was subsequently released under investigation.’
