A BOOZED-UP DAD who refused to wear his facemask on a Ryanair flight before telling crew to "f*** off" is facing up to two years in jail.
Adrian Front, 30, was held by police at Manchester Airport after knocking back whiskey and vodka on his flight home from Krakow.
He had been asked repeatedly by Ryanair staff to stop removing his mask – before telling a cabin crew member to “f*ck off”.
When police boarded the plane to escort him off, Polish-born Front refused to leave.
He had been returning home to Hull at around 10pm on January 29 following a visit to see his baby daughter.
Prosecutor Katherine Allen said: “Police had been given information that there was a disruptive passenger on an inbound flight.
“They spoke to cabin crew who informed the officers a man on the back row had been drinking his own bottles of alcohol, despite being told by cabin crew staff not to drink.
''He was also refusing to wear his facemask.
“He was also rude to the cabin crew and told one of them to ‘fuck off’, all the while being conscious that there were around 100 passengers on board including children.
“He was found with whiskey and vodka and there were a number of children near where he was and he refused to get off the plane.
“The officers said they could smell alcohol coming from his breath and his eyes were bloodshot. He would not leave the aircraft.
“He was then arrested for being drunk and he was later shouting in Polish when in the police van.”
At Manchester Magistrates’ Court he admitted being drunk on aircraft.
Sending the case to crown court for sentence, JPs told him: “This was completely unacceptable behaviour, there were children present and had emergency circumstances arisen, 100 people’s lives could have been put at risk.”
