A PASSENGER was filmed furiously arguing with the cabin crew and refusing to exit the plane after verbally abusing them.
Video shows the dispute escalating as the Qantas flight waited to depart Bali’s Denpasar Airport for Sydney, Australia.
In footage taken by another passenger, the man can be heard claiming there was an altercation between the cabin crew and his wife, which left his wife in tears.
The man accuses the cabin crew of “fucking disgusting” behavior towards his wife as he becomes increasingly aggressive.
“They made her cry and she’s crying because they were rude to her. With a newborn baby,” he tells the flight attendant.
The argument escalates to the point where a flight attendant repeatedly tells the man to “stop” while raising her hand.
He tells the employee to “bring the police here,” to which the flight attendant replies, “We are.”
The passenger continues his tirade at the flight attendant and refuses to be instructed to exit the plane.
“If you don’t carry my children out, force them out, we won’t go,” he says.
The man then continues to argue with the flight attendant, who says he swore and was rude to staff.
“I told you, sir, you were insulting my crew. You can’t piss off my crew.”
This seems to enrage the passenger even more, who says, “You’re getting mad at my wife because they (their children) are both double teething.”
“You can’t upset my family and my kids. What are you talking about: ‘You can’t piss off my crew,’ my wife is crying.”
Then he says defiantly, “Tell security to come and take me by the balls.”
Finally, he tells the flight attendant to “get out of my face” before the staff walk away.
A Qantas spokesman said the family were removed from the plane after they “abused our crew on a number of occasions before the flight left Bali”.
The airline will now decide whether the man’s behavior justifies a travel ban.
“The safety of our customers and crew is our top priority and we do not tolerate abusive behavior of any kind,” the spokesman said.
“We ask customers to follow the crew’s instructions to ensure the safety and comfort of everyone on board.”
The passenger who knocked out a flight attendant’s teeth during an argument over wearing a face mask faces a 20-year prison sentence.
Vyvianna Quinonez, 28, of Sacramento, got angry and slapped the stewardess in the face and pulled her hair as the Southwest Airlines plane was about to land in San Diego, California.
In 2018, a “hyperaggressive” passenger was flown off a Qantas flight from Australia to London after locking himself in a toilet and acting “like a cornered animal”.
The 32-year-old man was removed from the plane as the plane was returning to Perth.
