Drunk, Verbally Abusive Pax Banned for Life from Jet2

Drunk, Verbally Abusive Pax Banned for Life from Jet2
Ryan Boyd

A Jet2 passenger who was part of a bachelor party flying from Belfast to Ibiza has been permanently banned from flying with the carrier after his alleged in-flight antics forced the flight to divert to Toulouse.

The man allegedly became verbally abusive and belligerent after the pilot warned the bachelor party to calm down.

“It’s very clear that consuming alcohol illicitly contributed to this behavior,” said an airline spokesperson. “In consultation with the captain we had to take the unusual decision to divert the aircraft as the situation on board escalated and he was taken off the aircraft with the assistance of the police in Toulouse.”

    Never head of Jet2. I suppose it is too much to hope for that this drunk also gets banned from Ryan Air, BA, and every other English and Irish airline flying to sunny party resort destinations.

    I’ve always thought an appropriate response would be a 1-, 3- or 5-year ban from all airlines worldwide (depending upon severity)
