Trash. Ban them from flying any airline ever again.

I think no fly lists as a result of misbehavior should be highly publicized in the media. Zero tolerance should be trumpeted by media and airlines after publicly detailing the offense and offender.

If I were the Captain I would have told this guy that if he didn't sit down and shut up we were going to have to make an emergency landing to have him arrested... and that the closest place to land would be Cuba. How would he like to spend some time in a Cuban prison? :D


Maybe that would have done the trick? :cool:

Having dealt with more than my share of drunks, my experience is that irrational arguments work equally well (or poorly) as rational ones.

Lol! I'm surprised he didn't divert, not to armchair quarterback, but looked like a full blown fight happened in cruise, yikes! Maybe better to just land for liability purposes. Feel bad for the flight attendants, they have a tough job.

I once had a pax misbehave on flight to SA show up to return to the US 2 days later with same pilot/FA crew. Total A-hole. In gate area I was talking to Dispatch about whether or not I was gonna carry this person. Loud enough so the guy could hear that if there was an issue inflight I was going to divert into Columbia. I'd heard they had nice jails I wouldn't want to be in. OFG

CIA should have taken care of that one long ago.

He is still alive.
