Low-cost airline Ryanair has asked the UK government to take action to help prevent drunkenness onboard its flights. Europe’s biggest airline, as of 2016 when it carried 7.3 million passengers more than Lufthansa figure of 109.7 million, said that alcohol abuse aboard its aircraft increased by 50 percent in one year, almost always involving British passengers.

Cabin crew have said they are “overwhelmed” by the situation.

The Irish airline has asked the British authorities to prohibit the sale of alcohol at airports before 10 am, to limit consumption to two glasses before a flight and to prohibit onboard drinking of alcohol purchased at duty free.

According to the UK’s Civil Aviation Authority, incivility on aircraft has increased by 600 percent in the space of five years. While easyJet dominates at Nice Airport, Ryanair has several flights every day to Marseille-Provence.

July 2017 was Ryanair’s busiest month with airline carrying 12.7 million customers.
