With profanity, she further said that she has been working for free as an global criminal lawyer for the Rohingyas and that they (Air India crew) can't even serve her a glass of wine.
'F*** off! I'm a f***ing worldwide criminal lawyer and a barrister.
Air India filed an FIR against the passenger and she was taken into custody on landing at London's Heathrow airport, the official said.
Times of India says she also spat in the face of a female attendant and twisted her arm, causing injury.
The passenger, a 50-year-old woman from Ireland, according to The Sun, is seen in the video yelling at cabin crew and demanding to speak to the pilot because flight attendants won't serve her. She laughed when she received a written note from the captain, and launched into a tirade about how she was an worldwide lawyer, a human rights lawyer, a barrister and a proponent of the "boycott movement" with connections to the Irish Republican Army.
In the video, the woman passenger can be heard saying, "I am working for all your people". Don't get any money for it, by the way.
She also reportedly abused the fellow business class passengers for being mute witnesses.
A senior Air India flight attendant told the daily that serving alcohol onboard is entirely upon the discretion of the crew members and that during training, they are trained to de-escalate a situation.
Have checked with multiple Air India people and all have said she is Irish, even if her accent looks British.
The commander then instructed his crew not to serve her any more liquor.
"When she demanded yet another bottle, the crew declined".
She starts to return to her seat and she continued to shout that she will "turn you inside f***ing out, you f***ing stupid c***s!"
"Do you understand me? But you cant give me a. glass of wine, is that correct?" "All you had to do was give me a f***ing drink". The woman was arrested when the plane landed and charged with racially aggravated public order, common assault and drunk and disorderly, and is now being investigated.
'She was subsequently released under investigation'.
The woman is reportedly a human rights lawyer.
