Woman throws £5k in man’s face after ‘being escorted off plane’
Woman throws £5k at man on runway after being escorted off plane
Shocking video shows the moment a woman threw “£5,000 in cash” in a man’s face after the pair were allegedly escorted off of a plane, passengers claim.
The flight had to be diverted after the couple had a fierce argument, onlookers said.
Travellers said trouble flared when they were five hours into the 9.35pm flight from Heathrow to Bangkok on September 30.
They claimed the couple had a blazing row and the pilot told passengers for safety he would have to turn back and land in Vienna, Austria – which would take an extra two and a half hours.
Videos show police escorting the pair off of the flight – but then on the runway, she appears to throw cash in his face.

Grandfather Andy Singh, 63, was travelling to Thailand for a month-long holiday.
He claimed: “The lady and the man, they were already intoxicated. They kept talking about money, he would say ‘she’s got my £5,000 in her bag’.
“The captain said ‘we have to go back to Vienna because [of] staff safety and the passengers’ safety, ladies and gentleman we have got no choice but to get back to Vienna’.
“He said ‘it will take two and a half hours to get back there, and we will decide what to do after that.’

On landing, the couple were escorted off the plane by the police.
Footage shows the man, wearing a light-coloured tracksuit and carrying a neck pillow, scowling at Mr Singh for recording.
Andy said: “The police took the lady first. He decided after a couple of minutes on the tarmac to grab the bag from the lady, but the lady just threw all £5,000.”
Both were put in a police van, and footage shows an officer trying to pick up some of the strewn cash.
Andy said: “Some of the notes were floating away because nobody picked them up, they only picked up the nearest ones.”
Andy, from Gravesend, Kent, added that all of the passengers have been put up in a hotel and are due to set off again at 5.30pm on Sunday, Vienna time.

”Another male passenger travelling with her also engaged in disorderly behaviour and smoked an e-cigarette adjacent to the cabin galley.
”Our flight attendants took quick action to stop these passengers but encountered inappropriate insults and physical abuse.
”After seeking assistance from eight other passengers, these two unruly passengers were successfully restrained.”
