‘I’m an international lawyer!’ Woman’s rant for wine

November 20, 2018 Headline News No Comments Email Email

The commendably cool demeanour of cabin crew when subjected to an expletive-laden tirade from a 50-year-old Irishwoman flying business class is drawing praise from observers around the world.

The carrier was Air India and the incident happened on a recent flight from Mumbai to London Heathrow. The woman was arrested on landing.

The woman demanded to speak to the pilot after cabin crew refused to give her more alcohol, having decided she was already intoxicated.

Footage shows the woman cursing crewmembers, swearing profusely, and calling a staff member an “Indian f**king money-grubbing bastard”.

“You won’t give me a glass of f***ing wine?

“I am a f**king international lawyer. I work for all of you f**king people… the f**king people of Asia,” she can be heard shouting at cabin crew.

Footage of the incident is online with the foul language beeped out.

It’s also online elsewhere with the expletives intact.

London Metropolitan Police said a woman was arrested and taken into custody when the flight landed at London Heathrow Airport.

The Daily Mail online has reported the woman is a Northern Irish human rights lawyer who it understood was on her way home from a two-month break in Goa.

The woman allegedly demanded a letter from the pilot saying that the stewards were acting within the rules in refusing to serve her.

She was escorted off the plane by three armed police officers when it landed at London Heathrow four hours later.

The Mail quoted London police saying a woman was arrested on suspicion of racially aggravated public order, common assault and drunk and disorderly and taken to a west London police station.

“She was subsequently released under investigation.”
