Ryder Cup Star Arrested

Yet another unsavoury incident in BA's First Class cabin - this time a 'top' sportsman. Danish golfer Thorbjorn Olesen assaults female passenger, then urinates in the aisle on flight from Nashville- https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/art...l-assault.html

Sat in front of Thorbjorn in CE last fall and he was extremely mild mannered. Definitely seems like a situation where he consumed too much of something.

I love the quote in the Sun from a "witness" to this incident:
It was shocking behaviour. You would expect it maybe on a budget airline but not in the first-class cabin on BA.

That was the quote that got me too. Frankly, I wouldn't think taking a leak in the aisle would be acceptable even on Ryanair, but what do I know?

Well if they'd carried out their threat to either remove all toilets to fit in more seats, or charge a £1 for their use, it might have been a common occurrence

Honestly I still remember O'Leary's press conference in Germany a few years back about offering flights to the US, and that those would have full service including a BJ. The poor translator was livid, she completely froze and he carried on making fun of her and Germans in general. So you're right, I wouldn't in the aisle, just because the poor staff would have to clean it up. But if he were there... Anyways.

Itís high time BA stopped transporting golfers on their flights.

If people end up like this after "consuming too much" then they should know their limits and not drink (as much). Being drunk isn't an excuse to sexually assault someone.

On Ryanair, it may be because someone read that article some years back about O'Leary wanting to charge to use the on-board loos...."

According to quotes from BA in the DM article, they seem to be taking the incident with the golfer much more seriously than the incident with the rapper: "appropriate action will always be taken" and "our customers and crews deserve to enjoy their flights and not to suffer any form of abuse" sound almost like a joke given what happened on the flight that's the subject of this thread and how it was handled.

Sat next to him in CE recently - other than the fact he spilled his champagne over me he was a super nice chap and we had a great chat. I would never have expected that!
