The woman, in her 20s, was earlier spotted drinking in the airport bar, before getting into a row at the gate about being a "benefits mum," according to a witness.

She then raged from her seat: "I work for my money. I've got a proper job."



Cabin crew on the Airbus A320 warned her she would not be served alcohol - but she kicked off,according to The Sun.

She said: "I've paid for my flight and I know I am entitled to it."

But the pilot ordered her and the five other adults in the party off the BA 2731 flight, prompting a round of applause from frustrated passengers.

'One passenger from Reading said: "It was appalling behaviour" while another passenger questioned BA on why the woman was allowed on the flight in the first place.

James Griffiths wrote on Twitter: "Delayed due to drunk being removed from flight."Bigger question though, why crew let her on?'" He later deleted his tweet, writing: "Had a very prompt response from local team yesterday and now happy."

A British Airways spokesman said: "Our customers and crew deserve to enjoy their flights, without any form of disruption.

"This sort of behaviour will not be tolerated, and the appropriate action will always be taken​."We are sorry to our customers for the short delay on this flight."
