Passenger With Bottle of Whiskey Threatens to Stab Women Onboard

In just the past couple of weeks a man stripped naked to watch porn prior to departure of a flight from Kuala Lumpur to Dhaka, and another man on an American Airlines flight took off his shirt, made it onto the tarmac, and fought the ground crew.

And a half naked passenger threatened Ryanair crew before being taken off the aircraft.

Now comes word that a drunk Ryanair passenger was yanked off a flight after threatening to stab women onboard.

Ryanair flight FR4332 from Manchester to Tenerife had to return to its departure point to deal with the man. Passengers reported that he “had a bottle of whisky on the plane” and shouted at women near his seat.

The airline put passengers up for the night in Manchester and rescheduled the flight for the next morning.

Strangely Aeroflot thinks that it’s elite frequent flyers causing all the problems and not, as I’ve suggested, infrequent holidaymakers on low cost carriers drinking too much.

  1. Maybe Archie Bunker had it right when he editorialized that airlines should pass out pistols to everyone at the beginning of a flight, and then collect them at the end of the fight. He claimed that if everyone is armed, it would stop all the bad stuff that happens on the planes. 🙂 🙂 🙂
