A Manhattan woman who threw a drunken tantrum on a plane from Brazil to New York has been arrested for biting at least three flight attendants during the airborne brawl.
Ires Alves Pereira punched her seat-mate in the face during the international flight on Nov. 27 before turning on the attendants who converged to calm her, according to court documents.
The 40-year-old proceeded to hit, kick, and bite airline employees as they tried to restrain the flailing drunkard, who still managed to break yet another passenger’s glasses, prosecutors said.
Pereira, who has both American and Brazilian citizenship, was eventually subdued with the help of fellow passengers and strapped to a seat for the rest of the flight.
The raging traveler – who appeared in court Wednesday in a skin-tight T-shirt and jeans– was hit with assault and other charges, and released on $100,000 bond.
As she left court toting Louis Vuitton luggage and a Chanel purse, Pereira thanked the federal agents for sandwiches she’d eaten while in custody.
“Thank you for the sandwiches, I love bacon,” she said flirtily. “You picked the right one.”
“You look very fashionable with your luggage,” the agent bizarrely responded.
Pereria ignored questions as she left court.
