Man gets ear bitten off on flight from Newcastle
Getting a flight to Ibiza can be pretty arduous at the best of times. Ryanair banned booze on some Ibiza-bound flights, but that's nothing compared to the nonsense that went on during a Jet2 flight from Newcastle to the Balearic island.
It has been reported that a passenger almost lost his ear after it was nearly bitten off during some airborne pagga.
Normally, fights involve a bit of punching, shoving and swearing, but it takes a special type of snowflake to try biting bits of another human off.
Anyway, the man was (allegedly) attacked on a busy Jet2 flight on Sunday night and is now in a Spanish hospital where they're trying to save his ear. A witness told the Mirror how passengers, young and old, watched on in horror as the bloke ran down the aisle with blood pumping from his head, with his ear 'hanging off'.
Another added: "It was absolutely sickening and I find it unbelievable that anyone would do that at all to another human being. But to bite someone’s ear off on a plane packed with other people at such close quarters and with families sitting around him is absolutely appalling, people were getting off the plane complaining of feeling physically sick."
Enough to put you off those peanuts you just bought for £43.60.
Jet2 managing director Phil Ward said the company are working with the police to investigate the whole thing. He said: "The safety of our customers is of utmost importance to us and aggressive behaviour will simply not be tolerated."
