A married couple’s blazing row on board a British Airways flight to Heathrow forced cabin crew to call police for help.

Passengers were reportedly left “terrified” after the couple, believed to be British and in their 30s, both flew into a rage on board the flight from Los Angeles on Tuesday.

They were drunk and shouting at each other, as well as cabin crew and other passengers, the Sun reported.

Police said they were called to meet the plane upon its arrival at Terminal Five just after 10am.

A source from the airline reportedly told The Sun: “The couple were returning from holiday and were tanked up. They began screaming at each other and things very quickly got out of hand. It was a blazing row.

“It was terrifying for all other passengers and crew to endure this obscene behaviour. They were very sheepish on arrival in the UK.”

A British Airways spokesperson told the Standard: “The welfare of our customers and crew is always our priority.

“Police were called to meet the aircraft following a dispute between two customers.”

A Met Police spokesperson confirmed that officers spoke to the couple following a report of a “disturbance during a flight”.

They added that no arrests were made.
