Easyjet flight makes emergency landing after passenger punches stewardess for a sandwich

ITALY: An easyJet flight made an emergency landing in Rome when an angry passenger punched a stewardess because he was ‘waiting too long for a sandwich’. The furious traveller shouted: ‘I’ve been waiting for hours, I’m hungry’, before assaulting the young cabin crew member, eyewitnesses said. The drama erupted aboard the British budget airline’s flight from Geneva to Pristina in Kosovo this morning. A witness who was sitting near the man said: ‘He shouted at the stewardess, then he stood up and punched her, and when she fell to the floor, he carried on hitting her.’

Fellow passengers then stepped in to restrain the man, while the pilot diverted the plane to Fumincino airport in the Italian capital for ‘security reasons’. The stewardess later told Swiss newspaper 20 Minutes: ‘I was totally shocked. I can’t understand how anyone could react so violently over a sandwich.’ Italian police arrested a man while the stewardess received medical attention at the scene, an eyewitness said. EasyJet confirmed the attack and said its cabin crew member had been injured and her glasses had been broken. The 180 passengers were taken on to Pristina on a separate flight later in the afternoon, easyJet said.
