A Ryanair passenger claimed today he was injured by Portuguese police when he was hauled off a flight in Faro after a row with the cabin crew.
Rafik Boutiche said he was accused of punching an air hostess, which he denies, and dragged off the London-bound plane before take-off in front of fellow passengers.
The 20-year-old from London said the flight attendant had refused to let him move to a free seat and claimed he was left with an injured hand, neck and ankle.
His friend Islam Fessih filmed the scene in which Mr Boutiche is heard shouting 'you're hurting me' while other passengers object.
Today Mr Fessih, from London, said he had been banned from flying with Ryanair again over his 'disruptive behaviour' on Wednesday's flight.
