British tourist tried to bite girlfriend’s cheek on easyJet flight from Greece

A British father-of-four faces jail after he tried to bite his girlfriend on the face in a drunken row on a flight home from Greece,

David Briggs, 35, from Pontypridd, threatened to attack his partner after she slapped him during the mid-air bust-up as they travelled back to the UK from Zante.

He repeatedly told an easyJet stewardesses to ‘f*** off’ and told a distressed woman sat next to them: ‘Shut up you f***ing bitch’. His girlfriend Samantha Davies and the other woman were so frightened they asked to be moved away from the labourer, who was downing his duty free alcohol. The pilot of the easyJet flight from Zante radioed ahead for police who met it when it landed at Bristol Airport and arrested Briggs.

The offence was in breach of a two-year suspended jail sentence imposed at Cardiff Crown Court which also gave him an alcohol treatment order. Magistrates yesterday heard how Briggs and his girlfriend started rowing shortly after the afternoon flight took off from Zante on July 13. Cabin crew asked what was wrong and Briggs, of Pontypridd, Wales, replied: ‘Leave me alone, f*** off.’

Prosecuting, Lucy Coleman said they continued rowing and added: ‘The defendant’s partner had slapped him around the face and the defendant was being abusive back.

‘The defendant was leaning over and trying to bite the cheek of his girlfriend.

When told to stop, he said “whatever, f*** off“.

One woman became increasingly distressed and asked to move seats and Briggs told her: ‘Shut up, you f****** bitch.’
