In Brief: Malaysia Airlines Passenger to Serve Jail Time After Causing Disturbance

A German man who caused a disturbance on a Malaysia Airlines flight last Saturday has been sentenced to one month in jail after pleading guilty to endangering a crew member and failing to follow standard flight rules. Dietmar Ross, 54, allegedly stood up shortly after the flight took off from Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KUL) while the seatbelt sign was still on, demanded alcohol and harassed a flight attendant when she refused to serve him.

Ross reportedly became belligerent toward the flight attendant and ultimately had to be restrained by both passengers and crew. The pilot turned back to KUL, where police met and escorted Ross off the aircraft.
