BRITISH travellers have topped Spain’s list of shame for the most unruly airline passengers.
Figures released by the Spanish Aviation Safety and Security Agency show there are more incidents involving Brits hit with fines for bad behaviour on board planes than any other nationality.
The Madrid-based agency, responsible for fining problem passengers who have been identified by police at Spanish airports, was notified last year of incidents involving 862 passengers.
British travellers led the list of bad behaviour, followed by Spaniards on 203 and Germans in third place with 61.
The agency also revealed it has fined 729 people just over 580 thousand euros between 2017 and the end of March this year.
Britain also came top of the list for 2017.
Recent incidents on Ryanair flights to Alicante-Elche airport saw a drunken hen party on a service from Birmingham “taking over the plane”, and a bunch of inebriated Benidorm-bound men misbehaving on a Stansted-originated flight.
