Drunk passenger taped to seat during JFK-bound flight after ranting plane was 'going to crash'
NY Post ^ | 1/4/13 | PEDRO OLIVEIRA JR.

Posted on 01/04/2013 11:29:41 AM PST by jimbo123

An unruly passenger who got drunk and belligerent on a Kennedy Airport-bound intercontinental flight yesterday was subdued by passengers and taped to his seat the rest of the way, according to witness reports.

The passenger, who was on an Icelandair flight, “drank all of his duty-free liquor on the flight,” tried to “choke the woman next to him” and was “screaming the plane was going to crash,” according to passenger Andy Ellwood, who snapped the man’s photo and posted it to his blog.

Then when the plane crashed he was the only survivor because he was safely secured to his seat.

I ALWAYS have roll of duct tape in my carry on when I fly. For THIS reason, and because few things are more useful on a trip then duct tape.
Suitcase breaks, handle breaks, curtain in room lets in light, forgot mount for GPS, duct tape is the answer....

Bizarrely, federal prosecutors declined to prosecute the menace because passengers wouldn’t come forward to detail the man’s threatening behavior to authorities, a source told The Post.

None of the crew would either?

Isn’t it about time they stopped serving alcohol in airports and on planes?

Duct tape is like the Force. It has a light side, a dark side, and it holds the Universe together.

While I agree with what happened to this drunk SOB was justified, I can’t help but wondering what would have happened if he got sick and threw up.

Oh well. He himself was to blame.

You ask the right question. Airlines are hypersensitive to unruly passengers -- to the point of going overboard at times-- but their concern is understandable given the security risks. One would think that cutting off alcohol would be a way to avoid these situations. However, that would reduce one huge profit center on flights and we know airlines aren't going to do that without a fight (no pun intended).

I've been doing that for a while now, but I have a reason (that I send a box ahead with my clothes and stuff and need to repack it for the trip home - saves on bag fees and messing with luggage at the airport). But you're right, it would be very helpful to the flight crew in the event of an incident such as this.

The picture of the passenger simply tied up, after spitting on other passengers, reminds me of a line in an old movie starring Clint Eastwood-

Harry Callahan: And anybody can tell I didn't do that to him.

Chief: How?

Harry Callahan: Cause he looks too damn good, that's how!

Ban that too. No booze on the plane, no booze in the airport. If somebody shows up already drunk at the airport, he or she doesn’t get on the plane.

“While I agree with what happened to this drunk SOB was justified, I can’t help but wondering what would have happened if he got sick and threw up.”

According to the first CSI I watched, all the passengers would have stomped and beaten him to death.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 

Think about it. The drunkien idiot will probably get a lawyer and sue. He might even collect damages from the airliner. If I was a passenger, I would NOT want to get further involved and inconvienenced. If I were a crew member, I'd deny everything so as to keep my job and avoid personal trouble.

All in all, I'd say justice was done. The drunk idiot got what he deserved. Hopefully he quits drinking.

You know what happens to all the seats when a plane crashes?

They all get smashed together when the plane hits - all the inertia/momentum of the inside stuff is still travelling at 500+ mph. They get ripped out of the tracks and people are crushed between the seats.

The one thing I took away from the article is they let him on with his own liquor. I could have saved myself some cash by getting loaded at the airport prior to the flight had I known I could have brought on a stashed flask instead of paying $12 for a well scotch on the plane.

Pelosi will have to purchase her own jet - She had a bar on the government’s plane wherever she flew with her boozing friends. Bet 95% of Washington Politicians have a boozing problem and probably follows them when they fly.
