Mum jailed over terrifying drunken rage on board Thomas Cook flight to Fuerteventura
#1
A ‘drunken thug’ has been jailed over a two-hour rampage at 40,000 feet which forced a pilot to divert a Thomas Cook flight.

Natasha Allen pulled her leggings and underwear down and cornered the cabin manager during a flight from Manchester to Fuerteventura in the Canary Islands.

Her ‘loutish and self-indulgent’ behaviour was so bad the captain made the decision to re-route the plane to Portugal, Manchester Crown Court heard.

She is now beginning a 15 month jail term as the judge sent a clear message against disruptive behaviour on flights.

Earlier the court heard how Allen, 30, from Middleton, boarded her flight on September 12 last year with two friends.

Cabin crew and passengers saw her ‘behaving in a loud manner’ as she bought a J20 to mix with her own bottle of duty free vodka.

The court heard how staff confiscated the bottle, half of which the defendant had drank in the departure lounge.

The captain asked crew for Allen’s passport details so the incident could be included on his flight report.

A member of staff searched the her belongings for a passport while she was on the toilet.

Allen screamed at her and called her a ‘***ing thief’ when she returned and later went to the galley to complain about an attendant ‘spilling a drink on her jogging bottoms’.

She ‘singled out’ the most senior crew member before ‘pushing her back’ towards one of the aircraft’s doors, leaving her ‘genuinely in fear’.

When asked to tone down her language because there were children on board, the court heard how she said: ‘I have had my children taken off me so I will swear if I want to, you can’t ***ing stop me.’

During the row, she also called a stewardess a ‘***ing liar’ and pulled her jogging bottoms down and exposed herself in front of staff and passengers, Mr Taylor said.

Crew had restraint equipment at the ready but feared Allen was too out of control for it to be used safely.

By the time she eventually returned to her seat, the captain had already decided to divert the flight carrying 200 passengers to Faro in the Algrave, on Portugal’s southern coast – about 700 miles from the intended destination.

It was the first time in the pilot’s 13 year career that he had to divert a flight due to behaviour of passenger.

The court heard how at least one passenger thought Allen may also have been ‘under the influence of something else’ and that the defendant told a probation officer she smokes cannabis every day.

Allen, from Middleton, was hauled off by plane by the Portugese authorities, and, despite no action being taken there, she was summoned to court on her return to the UK.

She initially denied any wrongdoing but later pleaded guilty to being drunk on board an aircraft.

The foul mouthed passenger also owned up to a public order offence of using threatening, abusive, or insulting words or behaviour against a person in a way which made them fear violence.

Allen has a number of other drink related convictions including public order offences, attacking a Police officer and assault.

Amos Waldman, defending, said: ‘She accepts the facts of those offences and this one, and she tells me she’s ashamed she committed them.

‘Nearly all of them involve alcohol. She has reduced her consumption since this incident and she has flown since this incident without any issues.’

‘This incident was clearly extremely unpleasant. I don’t seek to minimise the circumstances of this offence.

‘But she was able to be returned to her seat without being restrained and without causing any physical injuries.’

Not a nice person to have to travel with.

A few years ago on a flight to Turkey I experienced 2 drunken women with 3 small children between them, I think the women were sisters. They got on the flight, put the 3 kids sitting together in one row of seats and they sat in the row opposite aisle and middle seat. There was a poor guy who was terrified for his oife in the window seat. The 2 women proceeded to each drink a slab of beer they had each brought on the flight with them. They were going to Turkey to get young men to “satisfy” them, and would be staying at a friends villa which had a jacuzzi and if it didn’t work they could fart to make bubbles, hey then proceeded to fart at will on the plane to demonstrate how they would do it, the place stank and the poor guy trapped inside beside the window was holding his nose and gasping. He asked a stewardess if he could be moved but there was no other seat so he spent most of the 4 hours flight standing up at the stewards station. It was disgraceful carry on, and the worst was that the eldest of the 3 kids was about 13-14 years old and expected to look after the 2 younger ones about 6 & 8.
