    Stupid, just plain stupid. Everyone knows, except this individual, that of all places where you need to behave an aluminium tube hurtling through the sky at 500MPH is the most important place.

    • sage says:

      Why do they serve passengers liquor then?

      • Common Sense says:

        1) Where does it say the man was intoxicated?
        2) Liquor is served, not forced down peoples throats. Having a drink or 2 is one thing, but if you are old enough to consume alcohol, you are old enough to take responsibility for your own actions.

      • Triangle Drifter says:

        Because most people can drink a little & not become obnoxious.

      • Joan Henehan says:

        Most people aren’t rendered stupid by a cocktail or two, assuming that their other senses are intact. Or, they may have been drinking prior to boarding the flight. There are any number of reason, including mental health issues, for behavior that could lead to being zip-tied. Passenger safety comes first.

        • sage says:

          Well alcohol apologists, he was drunk, and since ‘most people’ don’t get belligerent, some do and this represents a real danger to everyone ‘hurtling through the sky at 500mph’ doesn’t it? But no, your ‘right’ to drink a dangerous drug that is known to be closely associated with bad behavior, bad decision making and violence, (I didn’t name it liquid courage) is more important than safety. Stupid, stupid, stupid. PS. Pilots can fly after drinking 8 hours before takeoff and are sometimes hungover, some try flying drunk too. Carry on.

    Common sense ain’t so common! Now they should charge tis passenger for disrupting the other passengers peace.

    Happy Westgate to him!


    • David Tatem says:

      Ah yes and more money out of our pockets! Fine him and return him on his own ticket!

  4. Unknown says:

    Was on this flight and this is not what happened. He was drunk but was not distributive..

    • Booly says:

      I was on the flight too. Didn’t notice any disruption either. Looked like a student returning home for the holidays who drank too much. Not sure they really needed three cops escorting him off in cuffs.

      • Steve says:

        I was also on the flight, three rows from the guy. He was definitely not a student and wasn’t disruptive unless you count hitting people, spitting in people’s faces and hurling racist taunts at the cabin crew every five minutes.

        You guys must come from a hard neighbourhood.

    That’s what happens when born with the golden spoon.

  6. To Triangle Drifter:
    What was MORE stupid than oba attempting what they did. That was FAR worse!!They lost the 2017 election because of stupidity and insensitivity to ALL potential voters.
    Nevertheless, looks like there is enough stupidity to encompass them too!!They lost the election because of stupidity!!
    HHmmm.. I wonder if the passenger was provoked by a stewardess. They are not perfect either!!
    What was the antecedent to his behaviour of aggressiveness?? That information was not released. HHhhmmm…..

    Isn’t the first time on a BA flight!!!
