A woman has been caught on camera in an aggressive rant at flight attendants after she was allegedly refused a glass of wine.
The 50-year-old Irish woman, who has yet to be identified, instigated an expletive-laden argument with Air India crew members from Mumbai to London on Saturday.
Video of the argument was shared to twitter by aviation journalist Tarun Shukla on Wednesday to bring attention to the behavior of the woman who called herself a “human rights lawyer”.
“And you treat business-class passengers like that? Who are international criminal lawyers for the Palestinian people?” the woman asks before turning to one flight attendant and saying, “I’m working for all your people.”
She goes on to claim she does her work for free and clarifies that all she’s looking for is a “f***ing glass of wine”.
As the crew continues to deny her that service, she threatens them: “If I say ‘boycott’ f***ing Air India’, done.”
Later in the video, she even begins to ask about the flight’s destination after forgetting it was headed toward London’s Heathrow Airport.
Once flight AI-131 landed, the woman was met by the Metropolitan Police.
“At approximately 13:30 hours on Saturday, 10 November, a 50-year-old woman was arrested after an Air India flight had landed at Heathrow Airport,” police told Insider.
“She was arrested on suspicion of racially aggravated public order, common assault and drunk and disorderly, and taken to a west London police station.”
Police additionally confirmed the woman was “released under investigation”.
