In summer last year on a SAS flight from Seattle to Copenhagen there was a middle aged Danish passenger who acted violently and provoking against his wife and the cabin crew, and he threatened one F/A.
When he refused to obey to orders from the captain to stay quiet, the captain demanded him watched by a crew member until landing in Copenhagen.
SAS reported the violent passenger to the police for having endangered flight safety, and now the Copenhagen city court has sentenced him to jail for two weeks.
The passenger appealed to the district (intermediate) court and pleaded not guilty.

Source: FLYV, the monthly journal of Kongelig Dansk Aeroklub (Royal Danish Aeroclub).

If the appeal court doesn't discover new aspects for the defence of the accused (which is hard to imagine) then it will normally add 50 or 100% to his sentence.
So at least with destination CPH, future passengers either behave, or they look forward to a few weeks in the shadow. That trial and its outcome was indeed very good for air traffic!!!

You guys double the sentence if the court rejects the appeal? And this is the usuall practice?

Well, technically it hardly works that way. I think that it works the other way around.
If you are a first timer, and you tell the judge that you are sorry and you will never do it again, then you probably get some "rebate".
When you don't do that, then you get "list price".
I think that's normal in all developed countries, isn't it?
(And I consider my country a developed country).

It is a sad fact, but some people feel that their plane ticket entitles them to abuse airline employees. IMHO, they are entitled to a seat, reasonable service, and a safe flight. I`d like to see more airlines ban abusive passengers,and share their information with other carriers.

Tonight on my local news FOX 5 will air an air rage special. It will include an FA who was thrown 5 rows of seats from an unruly passenger!!!. There is a guy serving 6 years in jail for assaulting 2 FAs because he didn't get a 1st class upgrade. I say we take these people out to the tarmac tie them to the runway and watch the next 737 flight run them down!!! I have 0 tolerance for people assaulting FAs trying to be a bigshot. My dad and I had to help the flight crew break up 3 air rage fights because of the guy getting no more beer becuase the FA refused, the other was that the woman in first class slapped the pilot because she didn't get a second meal. the third was a man trying to break down the flightdeck door beacuse he was caught smoking in the bathroom. Stricter laws must be made to combat airrage even if it means giving FAs and pilots law enforcement training. I hate to turn on the TV one day and learn that a 747 went down over a major city because of a passenger breaking into the flightdeck and crashed the plane after killing both pilots because the FA refused to serve him another drink.

It seems to happen in 1st class a lot. People seem to have the attitude that first class entitles them to behave like elitist jerks. It's funny to walk past first class and see some of the snobby looks you get.

In United States many convicts seem to enjoy their
jail sentences a lot. They even regard it as being
on vacation. So they pretty much know what they're up to!
My sister works for a major European carrier. There
the flight attendants are well trained to restrain unruly passengers and handcuff them until the plane lands and the cops then get inside the plane and collect their catch of the day. Interesting??
Kindest regards,
Advancedkid
