Two women were escorted off a plane in Barcelona by Spanish police after becoming "abusive and disruptive".

The women, part of a group of 14 that travelled to the Spanish city for a 50th birthday bash, were taken off the plane on arrival.

The drama was captured on video and it shows the two women being taken from the plane while other members of the party plead their case to easyJet staff. spoke to some of the other passengers who revealed the behaviour of the two women, and the rest of the group.

A passenger, who did not wish to be named, said: "When the two got on you could tell they had been drinking. They were loud and they kept playing music during the fight.

"The stewardess asked one to put the speaker away and she wouldn't.

"Then she did and brought it back out again. Then they started verbal abuse and saying: 'We are all here for a f****** party'.

"There was more insulting, more verbals and bad language which created a bad atmosphere."

The passenger added: "They shouted at her, and then the brunette was joking when she was going to the toilet and said: 'I'm a suicide bomber, sure I am'. Which is a thing you don't say on a plane, but she said it as a joke. People knew she didn't mean it, but you could see she was upsetting a lot of people. I was told when the Spanish police came on board there were a couple of children crying."

In the video one of the party is extremely vocal throughout, claiming the entire episode was 'ridiculous'.

The male passenger added: "The whole thing was just them being loud and obnoxious, giving the staff the fingers and basically being extremely rude.

"The staff wouldn't allow them any more alcohol and that annoyed them.

"One of them broke down crying and got very emotional and friends in their party tried to calm them down. I'm thinking this is 10.30am on a Wednesday," he said.

An easyJet spokeswoman confirmed the flight was met by police and that it did not tolerate "abusive or threatening behaviour".
