A group of influencers have seen their behaviour branded as “unacceptable” after footage showed them partying and vaping without face masks on a flight.
Reports say the chartered flight got out of hand with passengers seen singing, dancing and drinking their own alcohol on the flight.
The footage showed the influences on a Sunwing aircraft from Montreal in Canada to Cancun in Mexico, organised by a private club on December 30.
In one video from the flight, a large bottle of Grey Goose vodka can bee seen being passed around the plane as others smoke electronic cigarettes.
At one point a man can be seen dangerously crowd surfing in the plane.
According to the Le Journal de Montreal, the passengers even had sex on the flight.
It is believed that several Covid and safety regulations were broken by passengers on the flight and they could face hefty fines in the thousands.
Local reports say passengers included influencers and cast members from Quebec reality TV shows.
Canadian transport minister Omar Alghabra slammed the behaviour onboard the flight as “unacceptable”, directly condoned the behaviour of the passengers and demanded a full investigation.

He tweeted: “I am aware of the reports of unacceptable behaviour on a Sunwing flight. I have asked Transport Canada to investigate the matter. We must take the risks of COVID seriously!”
The incident has also prompted airline Sunwing to cancel the partygoers return flight today after they claimed the passengers “failed to agree to all the conditions” while onboard the aircraft.

Transport Canada have since put out a statement saying they have contacted the airline and that passengers who are found to have violated regulations now face fines of up to around £2,900 per offence.
Speaking to the Toronto Sun, Rena Kisfalvi, president of the Canadian Union of Public Employees local, who represent some Sunwing flight attendants, expressed sympathy for the crew on the flight.
She said: “There’s a point where if you lose the control, you can’t get it back sometimes.”
