British Passenger Threatens to Kill Stewardess on Emirates Flight from London
Dubai Court was told yesterday about an adamant passenger threatening to kill a flight attendant on a Dubai-bound Emirates flight from London, when the stewardess refused to give the man more alcohol, as reported by The National.
The British passenger assaulted the Emirates crew member and then told her, he would chop her into pieces.
The incident, which took place in June, started out with the passenger ordering alcohol prior to take-off and 20 minutes into the flight.
The man then began to throw food from the served lunch offering, and as the attendant began to clean up the mess, the man starting pulling at her shirt: "He stood up and told me I was trash and a sex slave," the stewardess told the court. He reportedly also abused other staff members on board verbally and lit a cigarette on the plane's toilet.
The defendant denies all charges against him, including the assault, as well as the illegal consumption of alcohol.
The case was adjourned until 24 September.
