Four women, reportedly in their early 20’s, were removed from an Ibiza bound flight following multiple complainst about “racist” and”rude” comments.
The flight, Monarch flight ZB504 at Manchester Airport, was stalled after a passenger, Amber Louise Ferguson, wrote multiple Facebook posts from the tarmac, the first having been shared over 100 times, stating (along with a photo of the girls):
“Anyone know these three girls? Just delayed our plane to Ibiza, they’ve been racist, making rude comments and threatening people…If you know them or are related to them you should be ashamed to know such disgusting human beings.”
Later, after finding the identity of one of the girls, writing (check that post below. Do you recognize any of them?):
“Too many people think they can be racist and get away with it, I think not.”
To which, she received a response saying that the girls had also, reportedly, acted in a simlar fashion on a February flight to Amsterdam. Ferguson believes their was alcohol involved but the Manchester Police department has denied that.
A statement from Monarch Airlines reads:
“Monarch takes a zero tolerance approach to disruptive behaviour on board all of our flights. The safety and security of our passengers, crew and aircraft is our absolute priority.”
