"The flight attendant told the woman that wasn't part of the service and she bought a gin and tonic in the end. She began to get aggressive so the flight attendant removed her drink.
"She started swearing and having violent outbursts. At one point she got up and tried to open the cabin door mid flight.
"At this point she was sat back down with two male passengers trying to hold her down as she was punching people.
"She urinated over three seats and repeatedly had bursts of violent episodes until we had to make an emergency landing in Munich.
"Upon arrival at Munich she was escorted off the plane by around nine police officers along with an ambulance and fire services.
"We were in Germany for over two hours.
"Jet2 handled this situation really well and the captain of the plane gave everyone complimentary drinks."
A video was posted on TikTok by the passenger, scooping up a whopping 25,000 comments and views in no time.
People were quick to convey their shock.
One user said: "Well that's a blacklist right there. Good luck with them getting on another flight."
Another quipped: "Too much wine. Lol"
A third added: "Nah as if it was an OAP haha."
A fourth replied: "Welcome to the no fly list."
A fifth commented: "Disgusting and unacceptable behaviour anywhere especially in a flight, what the hell is wrong with people?"
