“The flight was diverted to Bermuda due to an alleged unruly male passenger, who was escorted off the plane without incident. Apparently a female passenger, believed to be a traveling companion, also exited the plane.

      Why do people make stupid comments like this?

    • TimBuc says:

      You are crazy mate. Germany’s money is long. They fly past us heading south. Maybe BTA needs to get hip.
      With the rest of the world. Hint Hint.

        • Terry says:

          Plus it’s cheap as hell down there if you like being fenced in and plenty cheap rum and ganja.

            That’s one thing we have over them. you don’t need to fence-in anything in Bermuda free as a bird here even your kids can just hang out by themselves with no worries.

            i don’t know if it bothers the other tourist but to me fence and high security/wristband made me feel boxed in. like it was limiting my experience. i probably feel this way because coming from Bermuda where you don’t have to worry about anything

      Assuming neither were arrested, they would technically count as visitors. Doubt the airline would be paying for their stay on the island.

      • Triangle Drifter says:

        Why would the airline be responsible for any of their expenses once booted off the plane?

  3. mmm says:

    For the safety of all other persons on the plane, it was given permission to land, and the authorities ensured that the person(s) involved was escorted off. I don,t know the cost of such a stop, hopefully after viewing the circumstances, the airline will be compensated. There is no suggestion in this report that the person will be appearing in Court, maybe they will …

    • Triangle Drifter says:

      Ha! That stop cost the airline thousands, which the idiot should pay, never mind inconvenience to other passengers for the delay.

      In addition to extra fuel burned making the diversion, there are landing fees, ground services fees etc. which add up to big bucks real quick.

  4. Nigel Spider says:

    Why wasn’t this guy arrested and put in jail. We going to just let him go and make alternate arrangements? Anyone thats messes around and causes a flight to divert because of their bad behaviour should be fined and thrown in jail.

  5. Enigma says:

    The airline would be the one to press charges.

  6. Terry says:

    Just another drunk.

    why do the seagulls fly over Bermuda answer nothing worth crapping on
