Teacher groped airline steward after drinking a pint of whisky

Katherine Goldberg, 25, from Ealing Common, has appeared in court for groping a air steward 33,000ft in the air and for being drunk aboard an aircraft.

The teacher demanded sex and grabbed the steward’s groin after drinking a very large amount of whisky.

It is thought she drank 500ml, which is the equivalent of ten double shots in a pub or bar.

Goldberg, who is originally from South Africa, was believed to be returning from Johannesburg after visiting relatives when the incident took place on the Airbus A340-600 at 5.30am British time.

A spokesman for the airline said: ‘Virgin Atlantic can confirm that the VS602 from Johannesburg was met by police on arrival at Heathrow and a passenger was arrested.’

She was granted unconditional bail yesterday at Uxbridge Crown court and is due to appear back in the same court next week.
