Ryanair passengers who peed in the cup, and threatened with fines, prison with crew

A husband showed itself in a fiery exchange with Ryanair cabin crew after they allegedly tried to fine him for urinating in a bottle when all of the toilets broke halfway through the flight.

The staff confronted the man after he was caught on the three-hour flight from Leeds Bradford international Airport in Leeds to Faro in Portugal when the bathroom gone out of use.

Witnesses claim that the cabin crew were upset after some of the urine splashed on one of their jackets.

The incident was filmed by a friend and let one of the members of the staff pointing with his finger, and asks the man, “If I’m going to pee on your luggage, would you like it?”

Sue Francis, who sat opposite the man, said the flight was already late and the people were on the plane immediately after the previous passengers disembarked.


She said that she told the front toilet was out of use and as soon as the seatbelt sign went off dozens of people started in the row in front of the two rear toilets — before they finally stopped working.

Mrs. Francis, from the north East of England, said the young man could not hold it in anymore and went to the front of the plane where the cabin crew sit down for privacy.

They said he was relieving himself in the bottle when he was caught by an irate air hostess, who ordered him to pay € 90 ($135), who claimed that he had an “aviation criminal offence.”

It led to a huge row with the staff to get more deeply involved — and things got even more heated when a flight attendant realized the incident was filmed.

The images is started when a member of the staff makes it known that people are guided to the only working toilet after one was unblocked and explained the others were banned because of the “too many people are flushing paper.”

A second member of staff then approached the man, who did not want to be named, with some paperwork and says that he needs to use his details.

But the passenger argued, “I did a little wee in one thing, and then I stopped.”

“There was my jacket there,” the employee answers.


The two then continue to argue for the man says: “I will provide you the details, but I don’t want that, he says I have wee-ed everywhere. I just did a little wee and she told me to stop, so I stopped.”

Another member of the staff of the steps in. “You went for a ‘little bit’ — do you think that you were correct?”

“All the toilets are outside the boundaries!” the man says.

A friend, who was with the man, screams, “He is paid £ 150 ($261) to be on this f-ing flight.”

“I don’t care how much he paid in”, the employee says, getting more and more excited. “There is all of our stuff in. If I’m going to pee on your luggage, will you? Would you want to?”

He storms off, while the other flight attendant is trying to take the passenger.

But a minute later, he sees the man’s pal, Mark Byrne, filming the incident on his phone and attempts to grab it from his hand, saying: “You can use for this film.”

Byrne, who was part of the stag group was the man said it was an “absolute joke of a flight award with disgusting manners.”

He said: “restless, aggressive and clearly p—ed off in their work,” and described their behaviour as “horrible.”


Francis, who was on a trip to Portugal for a surprise birthday treat from her husband, said that she was forced to intervene after the fear that someone you hurt.

The 57-year-old said, “I was afraid because I do not know how it will end — I had never seen anything like it.

“The boy was completely desperate for the toilet and he did the right thing by trying to do it of people. He got a little on the floor and on the member of the crew of the jacket, and the employee told him that he had an aviation offence.”

“It was just wrong,” she added. “The member of the crew, which is the cause of the discord in the first place, stormed out to the rear of the plane almost crying — I think because he realized it was all filmed.”

She said that the man was told to clean up the urine, and when he came back, the captain had told him the police were going to arrest him when we landed in Portugal.

Francis said: “I walked up to the steward and said: ‘You have taken this way of ordering,” and she turned to me and said: ‘He should have defecated in his chair.’

“They had been expecting him to hold it in — but you can’t measure someone else needs. So she just wanted him to do it in his pants.

“I just couldn’t believe it.”


Francis added that, when the plane is grounded, she waited with the man while the rest of the flight emptied and four police officers got on board.

“I explained that had the aircraft ready in the first place would have known the toilets were faulty and none of this would have happened.”

Byrne said that his friend was spoken to by the officers, but cases were not taken.

“Ultimately, I think that even the officers knew that it was a small incident blown out of proportion and they let him off, without warning,” said Bryne.

As a Ryanair spokesman said: “The crew of the flight from Leeds Bradford to Faro requested police assistance upon landing after a passenger became disruptive in-flight.

“The plane landed normally and the passenger was removed and arrested by the police on arrival.

“We will not tolerate unruly or disruptive behaviour at any time and the safety and comfort of our customers, crew and aircraft is our number one priority.

“This is now a matter for the local police.”
