Pensioner 'depressed' after racial abuse on Ryanair flight

21 Octobre, 2018, 21:53 | Auteur: Auguste Feret

Huffington Post has reported that the incident occurred on a Ryanair flight from Barcelona to London Stansted.

A Ryanair passenger was captured on camera verbally abusing a black woman who had the misfortune to be seated near him.

After a row over seating involving the woman's daughter, who was sat in another part of the plane, the man in the window seat can be seen loudly shouting at the elderly woman in the aisle seat of the row.

"Flight attendant incapable of responding appropriately". This is when Lawrence's video appears to begin.

He replies: 'I don't care whether she's f****** disabled or not - if I tell her to get out she gets out'.

The passenger, who has not been named, then shouts "don't talk to me in a foreign language you stupid ugly cow" before calling her an "ugly black b******".

Ryanair said the issue has been reported to police and they can not comment any further. "You need a wash".

When one passenger tries to intervene and stop the argument, the unruly man says, "I will carry on as far as I can with this ugly black bastard".

David Lawrence, 55, filmed the footage and can be heard calling for the passenger to be thrown off the flight.

However MPs and other high-profile figures have condemned the incident, with some saying the airline should have removed the man.

Scotland First Minister Quits BBC Event Over Bannon's Invitation
BBC News and BBC Scotland are described as the only "host partners" for the event. Critics of Bannon believe his brand of politics to be risky and hateful.

The video has led to an outcry on social media over the content of the video and Ryanair's handling of the situation.

Essex Police said in a statement: "This incident, which we were made aware of this morning, is believed to have taken place on a plane at Barcelona Airport".

The man proceeds to calls her "an ugly fucking cunt" and tells staff to move the woman to another seat, adding: "If you don't go to another seat I'll push you to another seat".

She said that when she had complained to cabin crew they denied hearing any racial slurs and they told her to ring customer services on Monday.

A number of politicians voiced their concern at Ryanair's apparent lack of action.

The woman's daughter told HuffPost UK: "Mum's really feeling upset and very stressed about this situation, on top of the grief she's already experiencing".

Throughout the video, the man refers to both the woman's skin colour and accent in derogatory terms.

According to HuffPost UK, the woman was returning from a holiday organised by her daughter to cheer her up ahead of the first anniversary of her husband's death.

"They've reported it to the police only after the media explosion, it's been two days".
