Over the weekend, Kate Moss was reportedly escorted off her flight back from a vacation in Turkey after causing a ruckus on the plane, according to the Daily Mail. She had been refused alcohol by the flight attendants and proceeded to grab her own drink from her luggage. The pilot called ahead for police to arrive at the scene when the plane touched down in London, although Moss wasn't arrested and no formal complaints were made against her. Other passengers on the plane claimed that the altercation was blown out of proportion, although Moss did allegedly manage to call the pilot a "basic bitch" as she deboarded in London.
Weirdly, a similar situation happened last summer as well. Moss was trying to board an EasyJet coming back from a vacation in Turkey, reportedly drunk and without a ticket, causing customers to complain. Later, an EasyJet representative told the Daily Mail, "The behaviour of the passenger didn’t disrupt anyone on board and there was no cause for concern in relation to any of the passengers in terms of safety and wellbeing."
