According to a statement from British Airways employee, Matthew Richardson, Langford looked “excited” at the boarding gate and asked for a drink briefly on the flight, which she was denied because she smelled of alcohol. He claims that she later approached him in the kitchen with a “puffed-up breast” and was “verbally abusive.”

Langford was then asked to sit down, but was aggressive and “beaten on” Richardson from her seat, SWNS reported. Richardson claims she was also abused another member of the crew, Poppy Haynes, at this time.

“She beat me a couple of times on my hands and arms. The flight crew issued us a violation notice to the customer,” Richardson’s statement read, according to SWNS.

“I explained this to her and she then tore it up and said: ‘blah blah blah.'”

Langford has pleaded guilty to three of six charges, including criminal damage, drunk on a plane and behaving in a threatening way, but she denied three counts of assault by beating.
