This is the shocking moment when a Jet2 passenger is being towed by a plane by police after allegedly ‘peeing on his brother’ and taking part in a “full fist fight”.
Alfie and Kenneth Springthorpe were issued with a £ 50,000 fine by the airline following the incident at London Stansted Airport for the Crete flight last month.
A shocked passenger, who wishes to remain anonymous, recorded a video showing one of the brothers being run down the aisle by a Greek police officer.
The barrel-stomached liquor from Sidcup, south-east London, is shown bent at a 90-degree angle and is barely able to stand up.
Another officer in civilian clothes walks behind the noisy passenger to help the other officer pull him off the plane.
The Jet2 pilot was forced to divert the flight to Corfu to throw the brothers out of the flight after they allegedly fought with each other in the middle of the flight.
A passenger said flight attendants found one and a half empty bottles of Ciroc Vodka under the seats where the disruptive duo were sitting.
The incident resulted in over 200 passengers having their holiday delayed by more than three hours and 45 minutes.
Many passengers were also left stranded in Crete for an extra day where Jet2 was to deliver hotels.
Jet2 posted a statement about the incident on their website last month (MAY 12), saying: “Jet2.com has issued a bill of more than £ 50,000 to a couple of disruptive brothers, along with a life ban following their aggressive and violent behavior. to that a plane had to be diverted last week.
“Alfie and Kenneth Springthorpe, from Sidcup, showed a catalog of horrific behavior on board the plane, which included causing injury as well as unacceptable levels of aggression and even physical violence.
As a result, the highly trained crew was given no choice but to divert the plane, which flew from London Stansted to Heraklion (Crete), to Corfu so that the police could unload them.
“This led to a delay of about three hours and 45 minutes before the flight continued safely to Crete.”
The holiday guest who captured the footage but wishes to remain anonymous shared the video on TIkTok yesterday (01 JUNE) and wrote: “Jet2 air combat after one drunk brother pisses on the other because he is too drunk to go to the toilet .
“I’m not surprised after drinking 1.5 liters of Ciroc Vodka on the plane.”
The video has now garnered over 60,000 views and comments from shocked viewers.
One said, “Corfu police are brutal, too.”
Another wrote: “Well that will teach him a good lesson for the future!”
A third added: “They should be banned from any airline for life, it’s shameful.”
A fourth commented: “Well, and they should never be allowed to get on a plane again ever.”
Today, the passenger said: “We were waiting to take off and one of the flight attendants informed the cabin chief that she had given an initial warning to the younger brother because of his inappropriate on her lips.

“Once in the air, it was clear that little brother was drunk and the stewardess took an empty 1 liter bottle of Ciroc Vodka from them.
“About two and a half hours inside the flight I was waiting to go to the toilet and the older brother got up but was so drunk he could not stand he needed the toilet but in his drunken state he peed over the little brother, who then hit him, resulting in a full fistfight.
“The woman in the front seat was holding a baby and was hit, so we all moved her away and the brothers were separated.
The cabin crew encouraged male passengers to come and help by sitting around them.
“They kept shouting insults at each other and we were then redirected to Corfu where the Greek police went on board.
“The younger brother and mother left the plane and the older brother was handcuffed and dragged out of the plane when he refused to leave and could not stand.
“Then we waited three and a half hours to take off again while the cabin commander went to the police station to make a statement, the mother got back on the plane and continued the flight.
“The younger brother just kept saying ‘he told me what to do’ and was pretty sorry and apologized.
“Once they were off the plane, another bottle of Ciroc was found half-empty.”
