In Brief: Six Unruly Flyers Receive Lifetime Bans After Drinking, Smoking & Touching Flight Attendants

Six passengers received lifetime bans from Monarch Airlines following their intoxicated shenanigans on a recent flight to Turkey. Pilots of Flight 908 elected to divert the Boeing 737 to Sofia Airport (SOF) after the rowdy passengers began touching female flight attendants and smoking in the lavatories, all while drinking alcohol they’d brought onboard with them at Birmingham Airport (BHX).

The unruly travelers were apprehended by police upon landing in the Bulgarian capital. The flight resumed its journey to Dalaman Airport (DLM) after a two hour delay.

Updated 06/08/15 — An earlier version of this story erroneously used the airport code BHM instead of BHX.

    Most of these intoxicated obnoxious passengers in European incidents appear to be British. Britain should consider a move similar to what China did, punishing these “ambassadors” of its culture.

    I didn’t know BHM did flights out of America. I think you mean BHX

    A little reciprocity is in order: other airlines should ban these idiots who have been banned by Monarch. If they want to travel somewhere they should walk or row a boat!
