Jet2 hits brothers with £50k fine and bans them for life after they forced plane to divert

Jet2 has hit a pair of brothers who forced one of its flights to divert with a £50,000 bill and banned them from flying with the airline for life.Alfie and Kenneth Springthorpe, from Sidcup, southeast London, “displayed a catalogue of appalling behaviour” during the flight from Stansted to Crete last week, the carrier said in a statement.The plane was forced to divert to Corfu after the brothers became aggressive, violent and caused damage to the aircraft, a Jet2 spokesperson added.The delay also meant the cabin crew ran out of operating hours and had to stay overnight on Crete so could not work on the return flight.
