"I can't get in while she's sat there".

The flight attendant then asks the woman whether she would like to sit elsewhere.

There's no shortage of stories of passengers behaving badly but this latest incident has probably got to be one of the worst we've heard about in a long time.

The incident happened in Barcelona on Friday afternoon, before the video was posted on Saturday.

Speaking further, Gayle said: "I don't eat, I can't sleep". I just want to go home.

"I'll tell you this, if you don't go to another seat, I'll push you to another seat". He also calls the woman an "ugly black [expletive]".

Gayle adds that the airline has not contacted her.

'I haven't done anything for you to attack me. He paid a fare to go on holiday, I've paid mine, so why does he abuse me for that due to the colour of my skin?'

Sonya Onwu tweeted: "Ryanair staff moving the victim not only panders to the demands of (a) racist, but lends legitimacy to those demands".

Ryanair has been criticised for how it dealt with an alleged racist incident on one of its flights. "He may now get away with it". "Police may now not be able to prosecute".

And Nicole Le Bold said: 'More people should have intervened.

He said that he believed the reaction would have been different if a black man had been abusing an elderly disabled white lady. The standards and expectations seem to be evolving at a time when social media can be used to hold airlines accountable for bad judgment one way or the other, Winters said.

A spokesperson today told HuffPost UK: "As this is now a police matter, we can not comment further". But no they took off with an aggressive violent passenger, putting the flight at risk. Enough evidence for conviction.

"Don't tell me what to do", he answered.

"For many years, a lot of the West Indian community has gone through a lot of these types of incidents in Britain, but have never been able to share it, with the public or with the world and so I decided that I had the opportunity to film this, as hard as it was". Another man called for the Mrs Gayle's agitated seatmate to be taken off the plane.

He responded to the pleas of the daughter: "I don't care whether she's f******g disabled or not - if I tell her to get out she gets out".

Passengers attempted to help the woman and her daughter, with many calling for him to be taken off the flight. "You have to calm down", while the individual filming calls for the passenger in question to be thrown off the flight. By then, the woman's daughter had come up and confronted the man.

'My parents were married over 50 years.

"I feel really depressed about it".

Former cabin crew supervisor Ally Murphy, who appeared on the show, added: "It is great that David did film that".

The woman's daughter told the man not to shout at her mother.

Gayle's daughter said the encounter left her outraged and her mother "upset and very stressed, on top of the grief that she's already experiencing".
