Passenger Throws $6,000 On The Tarmac After Refusing To Pay For Upgrade

Saturday night’s EVA Air flight BR68 from London Heathrow to Bangkok diverted to Vienna after a woman self-upgraded from economy to premium economy and ‘refused to pay for the upgrade’ while her booze-influenced partner wouldn’t stop smoking and became abusive to crew. He was tackled and taped to his seat.

The flight diverted, and they were taken off. The woman threw £5,000 (US$6,000) at the man. It blew off in the wind.
