“My partner and I flew back to Newcastle from Mallorca a few years ago and there was a group of lads sat directly behind us who crossed the boisterous line to the point where they were aggressive, intimidating, vile and absolutely disgusting. So I share the concern of these passengers here, they must have felt on complete edge throughout. He should be locked up and banned from flying again.”
