Noo, Gkirk you must be getting confused with this:
A PASSENGER has been arrested after attacking four aircrew on a flight to Manchester from Ibiza, police said.
Police boarded Thompsonfly flight BY4 92B, when it landed in Manchester at around 1.20am and arrested the man.
A 41-year-old man from Bolton was restrained with the help of a number of passengers, including an off duty GMP officer, and was arrested and when the plane landed. He is due to be questioned later today.

Damn, that thing came in before i could get to the avp. Blinking traffic in wilmslow was a nightmare so it took forever to get there! Luckily, it was still parked on a remote stand when i arrived for work at 1730!

This has nothing to do with the topic. I thought it was just funny.

I got the following from dictionary.com:
Usage Note: Irregardless is a word that many mistakenly believe to be correct usage in formal style, when in fact it is used chiefly in nonstandard speech or casual writing. Coined in the United States in the early 20th century, it has met with a blizzard of condemnation for being an improper yoking of irrespective and regardless and for the logical absurdity of combining the negative ir- prefix and -less suffix in a single term. Although one might reasonably argue that it is no different from words with redundant affixes like debone and unravel, it has been considered a blunder for decades and will probably continue to be so.
