  • Lauren Beaumont-Capps, 40, verbally abused staff during flight to Manchester 

An ‘aggressive’ Jet2 passenger who repeatedly swore at cabin crew after her flight from Turkey landed 30 minutes late into Manchester has admitted being drunk on an aircraft. 

Lauren Beaumont-Capps, 40, caused trouble while traveling on the flight from Antalya, in Turkey, to Manchester in January.

Cabin crew became concerned about Beaumont-Capps and another ‘intoxicated’ female passenger when the plane landed, Manchester Magistrates’ Court heard. 

Ms Shazia Aslam, prosecuting, described how both women ‘started causing commotion’ and attempted to get off the aircraft, which was 30 minutes late.

They were talking ‘loudly and inappropriately’ and ‘shouting in an aggressive way’, Ms Aslam said.

Beaumont-Capps, who had consumed six alcoholic drinks during the fight, shouted: ‘Get me off this f****** plane.’

When she was told to stop swearing by female member of cabin crew, she replied: ‘You can’t tell me what to do.’

A second cabin crew member, who also tried to intervene, was called: ‘A f****** c***.’

Ms Aslam said the female crew member ‘felt like she was going to be physically attacked’ as Beaumont-Capps continued her verbal abuse, shouting: ‘Why don’t you f****** f*** off.’

Police were alerted and she was escorted from the plane but continued to use similar language in front of officers and ‘refused to co-operate with simple instructions’.

Beaumont-Capps, of Swinton, Greater Manchester, admitted charges of being drunk on an aircraft and using threatening, abusive and insulting words or behaviour.

She will be sentenced at Manchester Crown Court on April 2.
