A Ryanair stewardess was urged to “get her ass off” on a noisy flight “full of men” ahead of Manchester United’s visit to Barcelona. Chloe Harrison filmed passengers singing lewd songs about her the night before last week’s Europa League match at Camp Nou.
The 25-year-old was warned by her supervisor that there were “some” United fans on the plane. But Chloe, from Audenshaw on Tameside, had to endure lewd screams from those on the flight, with one chant of her even inviting her to go to the bathroom with them.
She said: “I showed up on the flight and was told by my cabin supervisor ‘we’ve got some football fans, it should be fine, they seem fine’. I walked to the back of the plane and looked and it was just full of men.

“There were like three women on the flight. Even when we were doing the safety demo, they started doing little chants about soccer.”
“We got the cart out for service and as soon as the seatbelt signs went off, everyone came to the back to try to go to the bathroom. I was thinking ‘this is going to be a nightmare.'”
Chloe’s fears on the 6:00 pm flight last Wednesday (February 15) soon became a reality. After the cabin crew reportedly used up all their beer and vodka, passengers began using her name in their chants after hearing it during flight announcements.
The baffled staff member claims they chanted “get your t*** out” but also sang “we love you Chloe we do” and even “take off your shoes if you love Chloe” all while brandishing a shoe in the air. However, they mercilessly mocked the poor buddy of hers, chanting ‘she serves left, she serves right, Chloe makes the other flight attendant look like shit’.
Chloe said: “About halfway through the flight, I was walking down the aisles with a garbage bag and I could hear something. I looked up and everyone was looking at me. I was thinking ‘why is everyone looking at me while they’re singing?’
“There was an older lady sitting in the middle of the plane and she was like, ‘Oh, I bet you want to curl up, don’t you?’ I was like ‘what are they saying?’ and she joined them and started singing ‘we love you Chloe’.
“I was thinking ‘how do you know my name?’ They must have heard my name when they made the announcements at the beginning.”
Chloe added: “I just wanted to get inside the garbage bag. They all took off their shoes and I could hear them yelling ‘take off your shoes if you love Chloe’.”
Chloe says she was mostly unfazed by the attention on the two-hour flight, even sharing clips on TikTok, where they racked up more than 2.7 million views. “They were laughing, excited about soccer and going on vacation,” Chloe said.
As the flight progressed and the rowdy fans drank more alcohol, their chants grew louder and louder. Chloe said: “We sold all the beer and all the vodka, everyone was very drunk.
“They kept ordering more drinks and coming to the front. There’s nothing you can do in that situation, if they’re all standing up, just tell them to sit down.”
“We turned off the lights to land and everyone started saying ‘lights out if you love Chloe’. They were just making up random chants.
“As they left, some even joked ‘come in the bathroom with us’. Everyone would try to go out the back and ask for my Instagram, I would tell them I didn’t have it.”
“They were saying ‘I’ll never forget you’. I texted my friends when I got off the plane like ‘you’ll never believe what just happened.'”
With only three months on the job, Chloe says she’s never experienced anything like it before, and other members of the team agree that it rarely happened. Despite comments on social media suggesting the men’s behavior was wrong, she said she didn’t mind it, as it was mostly “harmless” fun.
Chloe said: “It made my day go faster, it was fun. I’ve only worked there (at Ryanair) for three months but when I spoke to everyone they said it’s never been like this before, except maybe in the summer when people he goes to a party place like Ibiza.
“Just before I was telling my friend that I was looking forward to the summer flights and everyone singing and dancing. No one was complaining about it. Everyone found it funny, it was just a laugh.”
“They were all harmless. Some made some comments or tried to grab me while I was walking, but I just said ‘don’t do that’. Other than that, they were all fun.”
“Even when they said ‘get your t*** out’ and ‘Chloe has a good c***’, it really didn’t bother me at all. If there was a problem, we could have called the police on arrival.” but we didn’t need that.”
Chloe posted the video on TikTok with the caption: “RyanAir flight from Manchester to Barcelona full of United fans = fun fun fun x Last chant was my favourite.” One person commented: “This is brilliant.”
Another wrote: “Chloe needs a raise and hazard money.” One added: “I love the fact that you laughed it off and didn’t take anything seriously. The jokes are still around.”
Other TikTok users did not feel the same way. One sarcastically wrote: “Yeah, ‘get your t*** out’ is lovely.”
Another commented: “OMG I can’t stress enough how important it is for us women to unite against this kind of behaviour. It’s not acceptable.” Ryanair has been contacted for comment.
