Always pack duct tape in hand luggage! You may need to tie down your seat neighbour...

A girl needs two things in tool box. Duct Tape & WD-40.

If it moves, and it shouldn't, use the Duct Tape.

If it doesn't move and it should, use the WD-40.


...someone was crafty with the toolbox!

Yes, it is real. Icelandair flight KEF-JFK. Lots of eyewitness accounts on Reddit and the Icelandic media.

"The man was "hitting, screaming and spitting at other passengers, while yelling profanities," according to airline spokesman Michael Raucheisen, who said the passenger's "behavior was considered to be unruly and threatening." ........ "Raucheisen said duct tape and plastic zip ties are considered standard protocol when restraining a passenger."

Were the "profanities" in Icelandic or English--I wouldn't recognize Icelandic profanities, since I speak Eng.?

And yet "The Port Authority said the man was not charged and was taken to a local hospital."

He was juiced and maybe he has juice.

Isn't that the stock photo or E- on UA service?

Who gets first choice of colour of duct tape, paid E- or GS?
