They received a reply on November 26, which was a copy and paste’ response. She The airline claimed that they took no responsibility for the incident and did not promise it would not happen again.

She said that her husband was going to the toilet and she saw him hit his hand with the towel. He then gave her the fingers. It was getting very annoying for the other passengers, and could have turned into a full-blown conflict.

After he refused to leave, the mother said that one of her passengers had to forcefully push a young man to her side.

The chaos continued as the plane landed in bad weather on Balearic. Stressed traveller said: “When we went to landing, there was a severe storm. The flight attendant shouted over the speaker that the plane wouldn’t land because everyone was still standing. 

“There was no police at the airport. They were excited and happy to be on holiday. I have flown to Ibiza 16 times in the past. I’ve been to Ibiza for the last 16 years and have witnessed some of the partying, but nothing like this. 

“It could’ve been an absolute riot because people were being banged into and shouting at each other. It could have been war. 

“People were afraid to use the toilet. They were afraid they would get head-butted or hit by a Grey Goose bottle that they bought at no duty. 

It was a terrible experience. I know that it’s normal to party and that I accept that. My husband and me have been through a very difficult year. There were many sad things that happened so we decided to take a break and just relax. 

‘We got off our flight and we were like, “Oh My God, we need a brew.” He’s 22. It would have been horrible if he behaved like that in a plane with children or a mixed-age group.

Ryanair was slow to respond to the couple’s complaint. Ryanair only apologised for any inconvenience and promised to never fly with Ryanair again. 

Ryanair spokesperson said that a group of passengers flew from Edinburgh to Ibiza and became disruptive during the flight. 

Crew made several announcements during the flight to diffuse the situation and minimize disruption to passengers. They also refused to give more than two drinks per passenger. 

“Passengers stopped disrupting their landing in Ibiza.”
