A man on an easyJet flight was supposed to be on his way to Egypt, where he was set to celebrate his honeymoon with his bride. Instead, he has been handed seven months in jail after he drunkenly assaulted two flight attendants and went on a homophobic rant.

The court heard that he was escorted off the plane by police officers who he abused, calling one of them a ‘baldy c***’. His wife was heard shouting: ‘Look at what you’ve done. You have f****** off our honeymoon!’
