(Newser) – Two drunk British women attacked the flight crew on their charter jet en route from Greece to England, causing the pilot to make an emergency landing in Germany, AP reports. After being denied alcohol, one of the women swung a vodka bottle and tried to open the cabin door. The women may be charged with attempted assault and interfering with air traffic.
