Incident on BEG-LHR Flight

Mon Mar 20, 2017 6:22 pm

News hitting the airwaves of yet another passenger disturbance - this time on an Air Serbia service between Belgrade and London this morning.

Four passengers bearing British passports of Pakistani decent refused to obey orders not to smoke, harassed passengers and crew, and shouted obscenities onboard, making threats when warned about their behaviour.

The four we're arrested upon landing at Heathrow. There's a public outcry in Serbia as to why the flight was not diverted considering that the 4 thugs endangered flight safety.

I'm surprised myself as to why there wasn't a diversion, unless it would have meant an overweight landing.

The "pearl" from the incident was that the offending passengers accused the crew and other passengers of blatant racism following a lady crew issuing them with a written warning of their behaviour and confiscating their cigarettes and lighter.

Some people are just not meant to be out in public unsupervised...

The info in this post is factually incorrect as was the person that reported this to the newspaper. There was racist comments made from the offset and a few of the passengers were actually apologetic and embarassed of the comments that had been made. They were not pakistani either judging by the recent racist football fans in serbia no surprise these 4 brown skinned people were shown such disgusting abuse. in addition there were no lit or recently lit cigarettes found. They were not allowed to record the abuse either and one of the passengers had reported that they were 'drug mules' to police and fyi they were not charged with anything. They were advised actually to make an official complaint. The abuse started when they got on the plane and passengers didnt want to sit near brown skinned people. Asking the stewardess to be seated away from them. The row of passengers behind were the real instigators and the pearl was the stewardess also calling them f***ing paki at the end of flight. Can you imagine being the minority on a plane with a bunch of people living back in a century when there wasnt a brown skinned person in sight. Granted acts of terrorism have allowed people to make assumptions but to this end it was unexcusable. These people are nowhere near the portrayal of what is being descibed here and on other portals. So please if you are going to discuss something in a public domain give the info and state the facts correctly. Not once was a threat made or any endangerment and that is why there was no flight diversion and also why they were released. Perhaps put the shoes on the other feet and imagine being put in their place would you not of been upset. Im sure you would of . Read the article on the recent football match that brought a footballer to tears from the racial abuse in serbia just a week ago the FA have stood in support . Britain is a multicultural community that does not tolerate other human beings to be treated in this manner. I was against brexit but perhaps it really is for the best. It appears some communities cannot control their ignorance. Next time you look at brown skinned people just think that a number of their ancestors flew in the RAF serving your countries and protecting human life. Please excuse the rant but I and a number of other passengers were appalled and will certainly not be flying air serbia in future if it was the only flight ..I would rather charter a plane or drive than be with these sort.
