A PASSENGER who drunkenly cried out ‘We’re all going to die’ as her flight from Tenerife to East Midlands Airport landed appeared in court last month ahead of a possible jail sentence.
Kiran Jagdev, 41, horrified passengers on a Jet2 flight after she had ‘fallen off the wagon’ while in Spain according to the British press.
While on board the flight, which had been delayed by three hours, Jagdev allegedly kicked the seat of the young girl sitting in front of her.
It is claimed that the 41-year-old caused one passenger to have a panic attack after she yelled ‘we’re all going to die’ as the aircraft came in to land.
Five days before the incident, Ms. Jagdev was arrested for assault and causing actual bodily harm in Tenerife during her short holiday on the island, appearing in court and receiving a four-month custodial sentence suspended for two years.
Jagdev has a history of convictions for drink-related offences dating back to 2010 according to the prosecutor, Leanne Summers.
The former personal assistant from Leicester pleaded guilty to entering the Jet2 aircraft when drunk and has confessed she was in “party mode” at the time of the incident.
Reports suggest Jagdev consumed six-to-eight beers before boarding the plane and it is alleged that although the cabin crew refused to serve alcohol, she managed to continue drinking alcohol she had brought on board the flight from duty-free.
Upon Jagdev’s appearance in court in Leicester, Recorder Timothy Walker stated: “My initial view is that immediate custody is appropriate.”
However, Recorder Walker decided to adjourn the hearing for pre-sentence and psychological reports, granting Jagdev bail.
Jagdev is due to return to court in November.
