EasyJet passenger dragged off flight by police for making a comment about ‘blowing the plane up’

Schiphol, the Netherlands – May 12, 2008: Easyjet Airbus A319 is taking off from Schiphol airport in the Netherlands.


A passenger was pulled off an EasyJet flight passengers thought he threatened to blow up the plane.

The offender told the ground crew to “f**k off” when they asked him not below the wing as he is interrupted to prevent the budget airline from the queues.

After he was confronted, he was heard, saying: “what do you think I’ll go blow up the plane?”

Cops boarded the plane and dragged the suspect out before quizzing him on the asphalt.

His luggage was taken from the Luton to Geneva flight and he was thrown out of the airport, but not arrested.

“Everyone knows that you don’t mention anything about bombs or blowing up planes at an airport.”

Sniffer dogs checked the cabin as the captain joked, “Do not worry people of the man is outside now. Is there anyone who does not like dogs?”

A source said: “The defendant told the ground crew to “f**k off” and sticks his fingers in them.

“He was on the stairs to take his seat when he said something about the blow of the aircraft, the source said. “Everyone knows that you don’t mention anything about bombs or blowing up planes at an airport.

“So they bundled him out,” she added.

A witness said: “The pilot announced there was a security incident and the flight was delayed. The police came on the plane and pulled the Asian man out. She seemed to him on the asphalt.”

“The police searched the hold, and then sent the dogs on the plane to go through the cab,” the witness continued. “Every passenger had to stand, so that their seat could be checked. Everyone in the plane was really worried about. No one knew what was going on.”

“The pilot tried to make light of it with jokes, and we ask that everyone liked dogs,” the witness added. “But when the plane eventually took off, the atmosphere was tense to say the least.”

The packed flight EZY2051 was scheduled to depart from London Luton Airport at 7:30 am.

It eventually took off at 8:17am – 47 minutes late.
