Shortly before departure from Frankfurt Airport to Las Vegas, the plane returns.
Two troublemakers have to leave the plane.
Frankfurt – Two passengers were taken out of a plane by the federal police at Frankfurt Airport on Thursday morning (June 23).
The reason was that the two men were drunk and forced the flight attendants.
An investigation has been launched, police said.
The plane was already on its way to the runway when the plane's captain decided to head back to the gate.
The reason was that the 39- and 40-year-old threatened the flight attendants with the words "You will have big problems with the flight".
Previously, they had denied the two men the serving of further alcoholic beverages, as reported by fnp.de.

The two adults then conducted an unauthorized video call and filmed the crew members without permission.
The behavior of these men also worried other passengers, which is why the captain had the men picked up from the aircraft by the federal police at Frankfurt Airport around 10:30 a.m.
The plane took off for Las Vegas with a delay of about two and a half hours.
The police initiated an investigation on suspicion of coercion and violation of the Aviation Security Act, according to a statement from the Federal Police at Frankfurt Airport.
After a security deposit of almost 530 euros per person had to be deposited in consultation with the public prosecutor's office, the men were able to leave for the time being.
In addition to individual cases like this, there is currently further chaos at Frankfurt Airport because there is a shortage of staff.
This should be considered before leaving for the summer vacation.
