A raging, maskless woman reportedly spat on fellow airline passengers while screaming "everybody dies" during a Sunday flight from Ireland to Scotland. Authorities were summoned to intervene on Sunday evening after the EasyJet passenger began screaming and spitting at others after having refused to wear a face mask, the airline confirmed. The woman was filmed on Flight EZY481 between Belfast and Edinburgh pacing up and down the aisle and repeatedly saying, "everybody dies, that's the only thing that's real."

Like nearly all other carriers, EasyJet requires their passengers to wear masks for the duration of flights, Newsweek confirmed, adding that the irate passenger was arrested at Belfast International Airport. The woman is seen on video shouting at passengers as well as cabin crew, "I hope you f***ing die," prior to taking off. She was eventually escorted off the flight for refusing to wear a facial covering on board. "You need to get a life. Everybody dies, you know that? Every f**king body dies," the woman is heard telling other passengers. "If it's corona(virus) or not, everybody dies. Everybody dies that's the only thing that's real."

The airline staff was forced to intervene after the woman, of Scottish origin, was seen storming up and down the aisles spitting and screaming at people. "Off now, get off now," one flight attendant says to the woman, causing her to yell, "f**k off you b*stard, I hope you f**king die."

"EasyJet can confirm that police attended flight EZY481 from Belfast to Edinburgh on 18th October due to a passenger behaving disruptively on board and refusing to wear their face covering," the airline said in a statement Monday morning. "In line with EASA guidelines, all passengers are currently required to bring their own face covering for their flight which must be worn during boarding and onboard, except when eating or drinking."

"Passengers receive clear communications before they travel and via announcements onboard to ensure they are aware of this requirement for the health and safety of everyone on board. We will not tolerate disruptive behavior towards other passengers and crew," it added.

Meanwhile, Belfast International Airport confirmed in a statement that the woman was ejected from the flight for opposing coronavirus pandemic health and safety guidelines. "Airport Police were called by ground staff due to a disruptive passenger within the terminal building at approx 4.35 pm on Sunday, October 18. The passenger was subsequently arrested and is currently under investigation," the statement said.

Earlier this year, we reported how a California woman deliberately coughed on a baby boy twice while standing in line at a store. The woman, who cannot be named for legal reasons, was seen in a video shared by California police removing her mask at a frozen yogurt shop before coughing on a one-year-old baby. His mother is seen in the footage pushing a stroller and waiting in line behind the suspect in the June 12 incident.

Speaking to ABC 7, the baby's mother Mireya Mora said the woman "did it on purpose." "Coughing on someone's face. She did it on purpose it's not like she did it on accident, oh cough, cough — no she purposely coughed on my son's face," she told the outlet.
