Mum banned from Ryanair after son spits at passengers

A woman has been banned from flying with Ryanair after she reportedly failed to stop her son spitting at other passengers on her flight.

The mum, in her late 20s, her husband, and their three children were removed from the plane by police at Liverpool Airport on Wednesday evening after arriving in from Barcelona.

Travellers made complaints to crew about the boy, two, spitting at them during the boarding process of the 6.40pm flight in Spain.

The woman refused to secure her child and then also allegedly became abusive to cabin crew, according to the Liverpool Echo.

She was not arrested, but Merseyside Police warned her about her behaviour.

One passenger who was on the flight told the Mirror: "At the baggage carousel, passengers were telling us how a boy had been spitting at people in the Barcelona departure lounge, they'd asked the parents to intervene, and the mum took exception to that.

"This behaviour carried on when on the plane, threats were made by her, and there was aggression towards the Ryanair stewards. It was all pretty surreal."

Speaking to the Metro, a Ryanair spokesman said: "The crew of this flight from Barcelona to Liverpool requested police assistance upon landing at Liverpool, after a passenger became disruptive in-flight, who was removed and detained by police.

"We will not tolerate unruly or disruptive behaviour at any time and the safety and comfort of our customers, crew and aircraft is our number one priority."
