The glorious picture below is of a chap gagged and taped to his aircraft seat. He is in this predicament because he got very drunk on a flight, ‘kicked off’ and irritated his fellow passengers so much that that’s what they did to him. A genuinely heart-warming story. Joy to behold my brothers and sisters.
A pity that this was on an American aircraft. Had it been Blighty registered, no doubt, the situation would have been different. The passengers would have whinged (and rightly so), the crew would have made wussy half hearted attempts to placate the arsehole which would have failed and the aircraft would have diverted to somewhere severely off track and had him arrested. Net result, huge cost, delay and no sense of justice.
If someone acts like an arsehole, treat them like an arsehole. Job done!! Sorted.
