    Air Rage Is All The Rage These Days

    Is it just the Brits setting an embarrassingly, stupid, reckless example with these drunken air rage incidents that appear to becoming a monthly event.

    You donít seem to hear of this sort of thing happening in other countries around the EU on the scale of the UK. The culprits always bear the hallmarks of a Jeremy Kyle guest on his show.

    A few lowlife passengers, usually on a cheap EasyJet or RyanAir flights to Spain, blind drunk on cheap vodka bought by the bottle at the airport, and itís either fully consumed pre-flight or probably concealed in an Evian bottle for more consumption on the plane.

    In the news today a drunken woman on a Jet2 flight tried to open the plane door in mid-air, then lashed out at the stewards until she was subdued and restrained, resulting in two RAF typhoons being scrambled and the plane returning to its origin.

    Are these people completely void of any intellect?

    1. Well, I have not heard about uncouth British plane passengers. So thanks for educating me.

    2. I have, however, heard a lot of AMERICAN uncouth plane passengers, especially those who have the temerity to bring their animals into the passenger cabin.

    a. I believe that one passenger got 15 minutes of fame recently by having a miniature horse stand beside her.

    3. It is outrageous that our society has become so permissive that people can claim that almost any animal is a "service" animal.

    4. No wonder so many children are out of control, given the behavior of so many "adults."

    More seats, less space, more travelers, less freedom and comfort, plus an ever-increasing population with greater access to travel, pretty much guarantees an annual increase in these types of scenarios. That, and the prevalence of amusing ourselves to death by way of subjecting ourselves to 24/7 information has collectively increased our propensity for agitation. In other words it's a phenomenon which makes perfect sense.

    No idea but I recall reading an article that said sometimes it is cheaper to fly from one spot in the UK to another with an international stopover than it is to take a train the fares on some routes have gotten so bad.

    Well if you ever read about an incident in Europe, chances are it involves drunk Brits. It is actually far too common for my liking.

    Google drunk brits airplane and you get a list of incidents for the last few months, not years but months. 70 Brits barfing and being rude and loud on a plane from Croatia. 7 Brits takwn off from a flight to Vegas and so on and so on.

    I usually fly business class so never had a problem aside from screaming kids (and you can drown them out by putting on your headset), but one time it was an idiot Eastern European who somehow managed to rip the top off his soda bottle and fling its contents onto my lap even though I was sitting in my own pod with a very high divider.

    Whether you fly business or first class, if the plane gets diverted or returns to its origin, everyone is affected.

    If an inebriated passenger becomes violent and starts trying to smash a window or open the door at 30.000 ft - if they're successful - believe me, you'll also be seriously affected.

    Subsequently the Jet2 passenger has been hit with a £85.000 bill by the airline, and her case hasn't even reached court yet, so that's a good deterrent to others.
