James Corden vented his frustration with airport staff on Sunday, but viewers insist the temperamental TV presenter was just expressing his opinion after enduring a nightmare flight.

Other passengers on James Corden’s flight from the Algarve to London have told how they feared the plane would crash as they were told to “adopt” the support position before the plane’s emergency landing.

Corden, 45, vented his frustration with a staff member on Sunday during a turbulent trip in which the plane stopped in Lisbon and passengers reportedly stood in immigration queues.

Fellow travelers told how Corden posed for selfies with them and joked about revealing the end of Gavin and Stacey’s Christmas special while they feared for their lives.

Vanessa, a passenger who was on the flight with her mother and husband, said: “It was something like, ‘Gather your belongings as best you can, take off your shoes, and when the plane staff tells you to, take the position.’ and, when we land, if you can, find the nearest emergency exit and leave the plane.

“Basically, what happened was that the wing flaps of the plane, which are supposed to go down when you’re in the air, didn’t go down, meaning they couldn’t raise them when you landed.”

Passengers were eventually told they would no longer have to assume the support position, but spent three hours on the tarmac in Lisbon before the plane was finally taken out of service.

Vanessa confirmed that the comedian confronted a member of staff after passengers left the plane in Lisbon – but only because they were directed to the wrong queue.

“Then BA finally let us off the plane,” Vanessa told Metro. “We are at the terminal and no BA staff were found. And they put us in immigration lines. And there was just no one there telling us what was going on.

“The people he’s talking to in that photo are the flight crew on our plane. I saw him hit the pilot with his fist as he got off the plane and he said, ‘Thank you very much.’

According to Vanessa, the presenter was upset because passengers had been directed to the wrong queue, including families with small children.

She said: “James was a flyer for the club and he stood there, and said, ‘What’s wrong with all these people who have all these children with them?’, as if to say that’s not acceptable. It’s not right. ‘

And Vanessa claims Corden, who once fell out with a New York restaurateur over his alleged treatment of waiters, kept passengers entertained by posing for selfies as they returned to the UK.

But those on the flight say he was speaking for everyone after the plane was forced to make an emergency stop in Lisbon due to a technical fault.

“He walked the halls talking to people and let everyone take a selfie with him,” she said.

“I made a joke and said, ‘Oh, we’re all going to die.’ Could you tell us how the Gavin and Stacey Christmas special ends? And he said, ‘Do you really want to know?’ and I said ‘Yes’. He said, “I can’t tell you.”

‘Then he said to me: ‘But do you want to know what happened on the fishing trip?’ and I said ‘Yes! Yeah!’ and he said, ‘I can’t tell you either.’

Eventually, passengers were given a flight to London at 9:30 the next morning and Corden was “in the same queue as everyone else, doing the same things as everyone else.”

Corden has already had problems with several public figures, including Spice Girl Mel B, who called him “the biggest idiot” she has ever met.

Naming his least favorite celebrities on a 2022 episode of The Big Narstie Show, he said: ‘So, there are some. ‘James Corden, Geri Halliwell, Jessie J and me!’

Corden and his wife Julia Carey are accused of returning an egg yolk omelet because it had “a little egg white” in it while dining at the luxury restaurant.

Ricky Gervais also criticized Corden after the host used one of his 2018 jokes during a late Late Show monologue.

Gervais tweeted a clip from Corden’s show in which the host jokes about Twitter users getting angry over a plaza sign about guitar lessons.

But Corden’s joke is a direct repeat of Gervais’s joke from his 2018 Netflix live comedy performance, Ricky Gervais: Humanity.

Gervais, retweeting a clip of Corden repeating his joke, said in a since-deleted tweet: “The part about announcing guitar lessons in the town square is brilliant.”

The comedian said he deleted the original tweet because he “felt sorry for Corden.”

Fiery restaurateur Keith McNally banned the former Late Late Show host from his restaurants over his treatment of staff.

Corden later publicly apologized but denied the restaurant’s version of events, insisting that he did not “scream his head off” and stating for the first time that the reason he was so upset is because his wife was given food to which you are “seriously allergic.” to.

The presenter, who appeared on his Late Late Show, admitted he had been “discourteous” to Balthazar’s waiters but tried again to explain himself.

Corden admitted that it was

Corden admitted that he was “discourteous” to a waiter at Balthazar when he made a sarcastic comment that he would cook the egg yolk omelette himself, resulting in him being kicked out of the establishment.

Corden says he believes the media has simply exaggerated the story (Corden and Julia Carey were seen having lunch at Scott's restaurant in Mayfair on June 27, 2018 in London, England).

McNally announced on Instagram that Corden was banned from the restaurant as punishment for rude and childish behavior on two occasions.

On the first occasion, Corden was upset that a hair had been found in his food and demanded free drinks to make up for it, according to McNally.

The second occasion was when his wife Julia ordered an egg yolk omelet and received a plate with egg white. The final straw was when the remade omelet was sent with a side of home fries instead of salad.

“James Corden started yelling like crazy at the waiter,” McNally said, citing the CEO’s service report.

But Corden insisted he did not shout or make any “derogatory comments.” His only offense was making the “unnecessary” and “sardonic” comment that he would “make the omelette himself” if the kitchen staff couldn’t do it.

My wife explained to me that she has a serious food allergy.

‘The meals arrived, my wife was given the food she was allergic to. She hadn’t even taken a bite or anything, don’t worry, we returned it. Everything was fine.

‘When his food arrived on the table wrong the third time, in the heat of the moment I made a sarcastic and rude comment about cooking it myself. It is a comment that I deeply regret.

‘I worked shifts in restaurants for years, I have a lot of respect for anyone who does that job.

“The restaurant manager and waiter were lovely, they brought four glasses of champagne and we said ‘that’s not necessary, we don’t need that, we had a great time’.”

“But here’s the truth: Because I didn’t yell or scream, get up from my seat, insult anyone or use derogatory language, I’ve been walking around thinking I haven’t done anything wrong.

“But I did, I made a rude comment.”
