From Jetwire, AA's employee newsletter:

On April 22, two Canadian citizens caused a disruption on AA's Flight 122 JFK-LHR. The passengers were charged by an Irish Court with various counts of assault and criminal damage for roaming the premium cabin aisles, assaulting the purser and for pulling down the oxygen masks in one row of seats. The men were banned from flying on any airline for two years except to return to the United States; however, American, Aer Lingus, Continental and BA have refused to fly the two back to the United States. The two men have been ordered to pay full restitution to American in the amount of nearly 20,000 euros.

Serves them right. I wonder if AC will take 'em home? They better restrain them if so.

I don't see why an airline would refuse to fly them back home, apart from one another of course. After that huge fine I suspect they'll be on their very best behavoir!



"Let me think about it" = the coward's way of saying "no"

Oh god! That's the worst punishment of them all.... having to fly UNITED*.








*I know, I know, Air Canada, Virgin, and a few others could also get them home.

As far as getting back home, I heard the QE2 was going to be making trips back and forth across the pond this year, maybe they can get a birth on that boat, that way when and if they "act up" the crew can toss 'em overboard!  Innocent



Flying is the second greatest thrill known to mankind, landing is the first!

Make them walk via Russia, Asia, Alaska and Canada! Then they might not think about behaving like that again...


Come fly with me, let's fly, let's fly away...
