A group of Ryanair passengers was filmed singing “racist insults” during a flight from Berlin to Mallorca.

Co-passenger Elisa Mazen was traveling on the FR110 flight on 28 May when they filmed some of the men who sing in the plane.

They posted the video on Facebook, explaining that “at least 30 men” brought the flight screaming “racist insults”, while wearing T-shirts with Nazi slogans such as “Kraft durch Freude” (Strength Through Joy).

WARNING: IMAGES WITH COARSE LANGUAGE AND MATERIAL

The ten-second video shows a group of young men singing on the Ryanair flight.

They seem to say “Gypsy,” (translated as “gypsy”) and that was a racist slur against the Romanian gypsies by the Nazis.

At least six of them are singing together with their hands in the air, while many of them laugh and smile.

A member of the cabin crew walks past, but doesn’t seem to do anything.

RYANAIR PASSENGER WILL NOT BE CHARGED FOR THE USE OF RACIST LANGUAGE AGAINST A FELLOW TRAVELER

Elisa told the independent that they were there to be drunk when they boarded the flight and that the entire three-hour flight was “tense and violent” by their chants.

Despite the fact that they are also rude to the female passengers during the boarding school, Elisa said that when she filed a complaint with Ryanair staff, they said that it was like that on each “plane” to do that particular route in the summer.

Someone a message on Twitter: “Grim. My friend was on a @Ryanair flight number FR110 today from Berlin to Mallorca with at least 30 drunken and rowdy men, some of whom wore T-shirts with the Nazi slogan.”

Many expressed their disgust in reaction, with one person tweeting: “Disgusting. I’m ashamed for my countrymen.”

This can result in up to five years in prison as well as steep fines of up to $6,305.

Disruptive passengers are on the rise, with 413 reported in 2018, an increase of 100% in 2015.
