One Asian man found himself in an incredibly awkward situation during a Ryanair flight from Manchester to Ibiza last week when a couple next to him decided to have sex in front of everyone.
The man really had no choice but to react, like most passengers. The indecent scene took place around 8 in the evening and things clearly escalated quickly.
In the act caught on camera, a woman is seen on the lap of a man as they helped themselves, while the Asian guy giggles on the sideline.
He’s smiling, but if anything, it’s clearly helpless amusement from the awkward entertainment.
Phones definitely help in these situations.
Certainly, it’s one of those events you’d least expect in a supposedly civilized setting

“I heard them talking about it but I thought they were joking. The guy was shouting, ‘Anyone got a jelly?’ We all laughed but then ten minutes later they actually did it. They seemed so drunk, they brought a lot of attention to themselves.”
But of course, not everyone is delighted at the lascivious display. The female passenger sitting immediately next to the couple asked to be moved, and about 20 minutes into the act, someone finally complained.
“You could see the girl taking off her pants and he pulled his trousers off. She started riding him. I had to get my phone out. I have never seen anything like that,” Williams said.
However, the crew reportedly did nothing about it, which would be totally alarming. Despite the claim, a Ryanair spokesperson announced later that the airline has been investigating:
“We are looking into this matter. We will not tolerate unruly, disruptive or inappropriate behaviour at any time and any passengers who appear to behave in an unacceptable manner may be liable for further sanctions.”
The couple’s identities have not been identified by the press yet, but we do hope they realize the gravity of their actions once they’re sober.
