Denied booze, drunk Irish woman abuses and spits at Air India crew

Arvind Kathpalia, a pilot and senior executive with the national airline, blew positive for alcohol before entering the Dreamliner jet's cockpit for the almost 10-hour flight to the United Kingdom on Sunday.

In the video, uploaded to Twitter by a fellow passenger, the woman, who appears to be from either Britain or Ireland, is seen shouting expletive-laden threats at Air India staff. Air India filed an FIR against the passenger and she was taken into custody on landing at London's Heathrow airport.

Video of the incident from November 10, as shot by one of the cabin crew, is now making the rounds online.

It all started with the flight's cabin crew informing the commander that the passenger sitting in the business class has gotten too high.

Airline crew on long haul flights have a tough job as it is, but abusive passengers can make an already stressful time much worse for all on board, as was the case in a freakish, alcohol-fuelled rant caught on camera last week.

The passenger turned unruly after she finished two more quarter bottles of wine and she also lashed out at the other business class passengers for being mute witnesses, the report said.

A fragment of the video is also available at the bottom of the page. He asserted while saying, "You think I'm scared of you".

"I turn you f-king inside out, you f-king stupid c-t". "But you won't give me a f-king glass of wine".

WARNING: Clip contains extremely graphic language.

Have checked with multiple Air India people and all have said she is Irish, even if her accent looks British. But this doesn't have any effect on the drunk woman as she continued with her racist rant.

In another video, the woman is heard screaming that she is an "international human rights lawyer" who has "f**king helped Palestinian people". She is believed to be Irish, although seems to speak with a London accent.

'Give me a bottle of wine and game over!'
