The Ryanair flight from Perpignan to Marrakech was held up for hours on Saturday, due to a passenger who insisted on smoking on the plane as it was getting ready for take-off.
The individual refused to put out his cigarette, so the police were called to remove him from the plane.
The plane was held on the runway for several hours during the incident. “There wasn’t enough air-conditioning” complained one passenger via Twitter, while another said “The selfish behaviour of the smoker meant that we were all held up on a hot plane with no refreshments offered”.
