A RYANAIR pilot has revealed the clever trick they will sometimes use to deal with difficult or wild passengers on planes.
While it is rare that trouble breaks out among travellers on board, there are still instances when cabin crew need to intervene to calm people down.
In order to keep themselves out of harm's way when dealing with such passengers, the flight attendants have a neat trick that they can rely on.
By asking the pilot to turn the seatbelt signs on, suggesting there could be turbulence, all passengers are then required to return to their seats.
This forces any rowdy individuals to return to their seats and belt up until it is considered safe enough for the lights to be turned off again.
The trick was revealed by a Ryanair pilot, who told the Mirror that it can help stop the attendants from worrying while carrying out their jobs.

The pilot said: "Sometimes if the passengers are being annoying then the cabin crew ask us to turn the seatbelt signs on as if there's turbulence, just so everyone sits down and the cabin crew can relax."
The tactic was backed up by a flight attendant, who labelled it "artificial turbulence".
