    The airlines that usually have these problem people, are not airlines that have business class... especially on the routes to sunny countries.

    So knowing you'll be faced with a massive debt for the better part of your life isn't going to do anything?

    They may not be wealthy, but I'm sure some of these would-be air ragers will have assets, so a hefty fine is certainly the way to go - along with a harsh sentence.

    Is this recent? I remember seeing a very similar story a few months ago.

    Not sure you understand how cheap it is to fly in Europe.. I can get from Denmark to Spain for 20 euros... On Ryan Air from Manchester to Malaga on the 30th of November.. 18.99 UK pounds. That opens up for doing bachelor parties in the med for 20 people.. a LOT of Brits do that. Basically, you do not have to be floating in cash to jump on a plane in Europe.

    It's that same story from months ago.

    All the budget airlines...depends on which routes of course.

    But Ryan Air, Norwegian, EasyJet, Vueling, and tons more that I dont know the names of. The airline industry in Europe is fully competitive and it has pressed prices down massively. Hell it is cheaper for a Dane to fly to the Costa Del Sol, than to take the train from Copenhagen and 70 km north.

    Thanks. I guess I just never realized. In 50-plus years of flying, I'm still walking past those first/business class seats every time I board.

    Correct, this case is from a months ago, although it's back in the news due to the culprit being in court to hear that the case is being transferred to crown court.

    I fully understand how cheap flights can be around Europe (if you book at the right time).

    Your response doesn't really address my point, of which you're missing.

    So cheap flights around Europe will detract would-be air ragers from knowing they'll be faced with a massive debt for the better part of their life if their actions divert a planes route?

    Cheap flights, wealth, or lack of it, has nothing to to with that.
