This is the shocking moment a woman was escorted off a Jet2 flight by armed police after screaming and swearing at staff.
The woman was seen screaming while pacing up and down the flight and reportedly slapped other passengers before the plane had to be diverted. Those on board can be heard cheering in the video as the woman is escorted off the aircraft following her foul-mouthed rant di lei.
The flight to Antalya left Manchester Airport at around 9.15am on Monday and was due to arrive in Turkey around four and a half hours later. It was diverted to Vienna and landed there around 11.40am, reports Yorkshire Live.

A video filmed on a mobile phone of the disruptive passenger, reported to be from Kirklees in Yorkshire, has now emerged showing her shouting at uniformed staff in the aisle.
A member of staff can be seen telling her to ‘stand back’, to which she replies: “I am back. Sort your head out you.” The airline worker says: “You are not doing yourself any favors.”
She replies: “You’re not doing yourself any favors either. So what have I done? Don’t touch me, don’t **** ing touch me.” She adds: “What have I done? What have I done wrong on this flight, eh? See, you haven’t got an answer.”
A man can be seen shaking his head at the woman’s behavior. Another video clip appears to show the moment armed police officers escorted the woman from the plane.
One passenger can be heard to shout: “Wait ’til you get the bill love.” Others are shouting “bye bye” as the woman is led away by armed officers.
A text sent by Jet2 to passengers onboard the flight shortly before 12pm said: “Hello, we are sorry that due to the disruptive behavior of a fellow passenger, your flight has been diverted to Vienna. We are working on a situation to get you on your way as soon as possible. “
The flight arrived at its original destination, Antalya, just after 3pm – one hour and 15 minutes later than scheduled.
A spokesperson for Jet2 confirmed that flight LS895 diverted to Vienna “so that a disruptive passenger could be offloaded. They said:” As a family friendly airline, we take a zero tolerance approach to disruptive behavior. “
