London: A British Airways flight on way to Tunisia had to make an emergency landing in France after two drunken middle-aged women on board tried to force their way into the cockpit.
The women -- aged 50 and 43 -- swore in front of children and refused to return to their seats after drinking a flavoured rum straight from the bottle, the Daily Mail reported.

One passenger said the women even threatened to track down and kill the family of a stewardess on the flight from Gatwick airport to Tunisia.

It was later claimed the women hid in the Boeing 737-400`s toilet for a smoke.

The pilot diverted to Lyon, where French police boarded and held the women in custody for a night. They were then put on a return flight.

"They decided they were going to meet the captain and marched towards the cockpit. It was very frightening," a passenger was quoted as saying.
