Man filmed hurling racist abuse at woman sat near him on plane

Ryanair issue statement on video of racial abuse incident on one of their planes

Budget airline Ryanair faces calls for a boycott after failing to remove racially abusive passenger from a flight.

The shocking footage, which was filmed on a flight from Barcelona to London on Friday, shows the man calling the woman an "ugly black bastard". "And then a man came on board and arrived at his seat, then spoke very harshly to a woman sitting in the aisle seat".

When another passenger asks the man to stop, he replies: "I will carry on for as long as I can with this ugly black b******".

"I tell you what, I hope someone sits there because I don't want to sit next to your ugly face, your ugly f****** face", the man can be heard shouting at the stunned passenger.

The airline has faced criticism for not removing the passenger from the flight.

Commenting on Facebook, one woman said: 'Glad to see the man behind them intervened.

In an interview with the Huffington Post, the daughter of the 77-year-old woman - identified as Mrs. Gayle - said her mother was returning from a trip honoring her husband who died one year ago.

She said that when she had complained to cabin crew they denied hearing any racial slurs and they told her to ring customer services on Monday.

Mrs. Gayle moved to the United Kingdom from Jamaica in the 1960s and was on vacation with her daughter to mark the first anniversary of her husband's death.

A number of politicians voiced their concern at Ryanair's apparent lack of action.

I am so depressed. As for me, I'm upset about the whole thing too - the fact that the passenger wasn't taken off the plane and how the situation was dealt with, ' she said.

The shadow transport minister for aviation, Karl Turner, responded by saying he will raise the issue.

"Clearly committed criminal offences".

MSP for Greenock and Inverclyde Stuart McMillan also wrote: "This is really appalling Ryanair".

Ryanair said the matter was now in the hands of police. Racist male passenger should have been put off flight before it departed. "However well done to passenger with black t-shirt that intervened #hero".

A spokesperson for Ryanair said: 'We have reported this to the police in Essex and as this is now a police matter, we can not comment further'.

Essex Police told i in a statement: "This incident, which we were made aware of this morning, is believed to have taken place on a plane at Barcelona Airport. We will never fly with Ryanair again".
