A viral video shows passengers on a Jet2 airplane cheering as an elderly woman is removed by German authorities for allegedly becoming violent with an airplane steward.

According to a report from the Daily Mail, the woman, who is in her 70's, slapped the Jet2 steward after he took away her gin and tonic. This was after she apparently became angry when her request for free champagne was denied.

One video of the encounter, obtained byDeadlineTV, shows the woman repeatedly trying to hit the steward as he tries to speak to her.

At first the woman flails her arms in the direction of the steward, then she stands up and begins directly hitting him before falling back into her seat.

Passengers watched in disbelief.
