Haha, I havent seen Keeping up Apperances in years (the Daisy and Onslow reference)!!!

I would say anything involving LAS. Also MSY during Martigras.

In my experience, Friday afternoon and evening flights are the best for drinkers (or worst, depending on your perspective). And in my experience, Southwest seems to have a higher proportion of drinkers than other airlines in the US. I think it is probably because they send out drink coupon books to their frequent fliers with each free RT ticket earned.

I once was on a Friday evening flight from OAK to PDX on which a jovial frequent flier held up a fist full of drink coupons, declared it was his birthday and announced that the drinks on the 90 minute flight were, "On him". It was crazy. I had two cocktails, and most people I could see from my seat did too. On landing the entire cabin was singing, "...for he's a jolly good fellow..." at the tops of their lungs. Someone even produced a bottle of champagne from somewhere and gave it to him after the landing.

Did you ever watch "Airline" on A & E

There would usually be 3 story lines and 99% of the time, 1 of them would involve someone being drunk.

Without, hopefully, offending anyone, one outfit I once worked for would dread what were "affectionately" known as Houston Hickeys and Crazy Cannucks going back stateside after time in the oil regions of the former USSR.

Boy could they drink, and they were always in J !

No way, the charter crowd are quite sedate comapred to the average U2 or FR flight to a stag and hen destination.

Unless you want to have your pockets filled with vomit by a creature wearing a set of comedy breasts, don't fly from LTN or STN to Prague or Dublin on a Friday

CPH to BKK on TG in holiday season. A lot of in particular Norwegians and Swedes have now left the dark shadow of their state monopolies (that make sure a most ordinary pub will charge you US$ 10+ for less than a proper pint)....

You'll have to be on the flight in order to believe it as many of the poor lads are not used to the booze..

HA flights from ANC to HNL in the dead of winter. The Alaskans clean us out of booze on every flight!

Our old MAC flights from Norfolk, VA to Diego Garcia in the Indian Ocean would take the top prize for most alcohol consumption, and most cigarettes smoked on a flight, and boy am I glad those days are over!!

I would second MUC's statement:

Quoting MUCflieger (Reply 9):

well, probably all flights from Tallin to Helsinki - so those flights could really become a trip to Hell (HEL)...

I once took the ferry from the Estonian capital over the Finnish Bay to Finnland's metropolis - and I was astonished to see myself surrounded by more than tipsy Finns that carried as much alcohol as they could somehow put onto them or into their bags (well, carrying devices rather).


Other than that I'd guess that quite a few flights to and from PMI are filled with heavy boozers - especially from Germany and Switzerland...(the image of the Ballermann still exists)...


Another, well funny, if somehow bizzarely unexptected, experience was on a Friday flight from PHL into LAS - I happened to sit next to two ladies who were about to party hard and spent several dozens of bucks on red whie bottles (I was flying on to LA) . They tried to persuade me in the end to go with them...


anyway: cheers



Our battered suitcases were piled on the sidewalk again; we had longer ways to go. But no matter, the road is life.

Thanks so far...

Stockholm-Bangkok with TG have had some problems with
not only drunk passengers but also on drugs and the combo
could be very bad as they go agressive and want to jump out!  Smile
I have been on flights when a man tried to open the dooor and
another tried to kick out a window. Amazing to do that in Y class
with the seat pitch they have... Big grin
