Six arrested after trouble on holiday flight
Six Scottish passengers were arrested by Spanish police after a drunken rampage on a flight from Glasgow Airport. The men were detained at Reus Airport on Tuesday night after trouble on the flight, and then rearrested after causing further chaos at their hotel when they were released.
Holiday company Thomas Cook said the trouble began shortly after their charter flight took off from Glasgow. A spokesman said that the men smoked in the aeroplane toilets and swore at staff after drinking vodka purchased in the airport duty free shop on the plane. They are also accused of sexually assaulting one air stewardess and biting another.
Spanish police boarded the plane on its arrival at Reus Airport and arrested the six men, who then began fighting with the officers and each other. They were released without charge but police were called to their hotel twice after further trouble later on Tuesday night.
The men were thrown out of the hotel by management and have been barred from ever flying with Thomas Cook again. A spokesman for the holiday company said that they will ask British authorities to act if the Spanish police do not press charges over the trouble on the flight.
