Stunned passengers were left open-mouthed as they watched Madonna get off an economy flight – loaded with her Louis Vuitton luggage – after their plane was diverted on its way to Lisbon.
An onlooker said: ‘We’d been on the ground for about 20 minutes when I saw her assistant speaking with crew members at the front of the plane.
‘Then I noticed all this Louis Vuitton luggage being carried past me down the aisle too. And Madonna literally walked by me. I couldn’t believe it.
‘She had no make-up on but I Googled her and I discovered that she’s recently bought a place in Lisbon, so her being on the flight suddenly made sense.
‘I thought to myself ‘Madonna is on my flight!’
‘She looked tired as she sat and waited at the front of the plane for about half an hour. I could barely see her face, she was constantly turning away or hiding her face in her scarf.
‘She didn’t say or do anything while her agent was on her phone. Madonna was just sitting and waiting.
‘Then she got off the plane and I saw her get on to an airport bus. I’d heard her agent saying that her car was waiting out front – they must have meant outside the airport.’
The assistant appeared to have told the crew she was Madonna but they remained professional and didn’t react. No one else appeared to recognise the Holiday superstar in their midst.
The lunchtime flight sat on the Porto runway for about an hour before flying on to Lisbon.
