Drunk flyer yelled ‘I hope this plane crashes’ as she attacked Virgin Atlantic aircraft crew

A DRUNK air passenger yelled “I hope this plane crashes” as she attacked crew, a court heard.

When told she could be arrested, Rachel Street, 41, declared: “Bring it on.”

She kicked off in the first class cabin of the Virgin Atlantic jet when refused more alcohol.

Street also grabbed a flight attendant’s hair. She was arrested after the flight from Barbados landed at Heathrow.

Street, of Streatham, South London, admitted being drunk on a plane, threatening behaviour and assault.

She was bailed by Ealing JPs to be sentenced next month.

Prosecuting, Christelle McCracken said: "The defendant was heard making strange remarks about coming onto a male passenger because he 'seemed lonely and miserable'."

Ms McCracken added: "She grabbed the flight attendant's hair and continued acting abusively and swearing multiple times."

The court was told Virgin staff said they had "never experienced behaviour like this at 40,000 feet".
