Two BC pax get down to business on AA and put on quite a show prior to arrest

AA, Dallas to Manchester is one "hot" route apparently. Two executive types, loaded to the gills I'd imagine, proceeded to strip and get down to business right in the BC cabin. They were charged with outraging public decency. I like theater as much as anybody, but in this case I might have opted just for the movie!!!

From the BBC News:

Monday, October 4, 1999 Published at 08:43 GMT 09:43 UK


UK

'Mile high' couple charged

The pair were held by police at Manchester Airport

A man and a woman have been charged by police after
allegedly carrying out a sex act in the business class
section of a transatlantic jet.

Under new laws originally brought in to tackle "air rage",
the pair are accused of conduct causing harassment,
alarm or distress.

David Machin, 40, and Amanda Holt, 37, are also
charged with outraging public decency and being drunk
on board an aircraft.

The incident is alleged to have taken place on an
American Airlines flight from Dallas to Manchester.

The pair were arrested at Manchester Airport after the
pilot of the Boeing 757 radioed ahead with complaints of
"lewd and drunken behaviour".

If Commander Catcop was on that flight he would have made a citizens arrest.

I don't want a cable t-v show when I'm flying.

Now this will NEVER happen on any flights I'm on. So I'm wearing the badge.

Shame on these people!! SHAME SHAME!!! They'll probably lose their B-A miles!

If they had done this in coach they would also have been awarded a 9.5 for degree of difficulty.

RRRRRAAAAAOOOOOOWWWWWWLLLLLL!!!!

If this couple sat next to me... I would cough up a big hairball on them.

Then again, I only sit in First or Business so the chances of this are very nil.

Premex: That must be a typo on the BBC's part. According to the AA web site, the flight uses a 767-300.

leroy - The Guardian also reported a 757 yesterday, although I am surprised a 757 has the range (DFW-MAN 4633 miles).

Catman - these happy campers were at the front of the plane, (for your viewing pleasure, as it were).

I witnessed a similar incident on a train from Barcelona to Nice in August of 1982.

Would it be safe to say the couple was in the "Smoking" Section. . . ?
