Its being reported here this morning that an Australian passenger from an Air NZ SYD-LAX flight was arrested on arrival into LAX for touching female crew members, hurling abuse at crew members and kicking a pilot in the groin(!) He was finally overpowered by the crew and handcuffed until arrival when the FBI placed him under arrest.

Makes you wonder about some people huh?

If he was touching male crew members I might have thought it was Brissie_lions   Was the guy smashed or just drunk? Unfortunatley this kind of thing is becoming more common.

Good to see them coming out ocassionally - No place for violence or abuse on an aircraft. I know that lots of airlines carry restraints - I thought the plastic strip with a hole at the end like you see on diplomatic bags and courier bags. The end never comes out of the hole once you shove the end through it.

You can use it around feet to I think.

This topic came up once before.
I would like to add again, British Airways
always have real handcuffs on board,
and by the way, once used on an unruly
passenger, the only ones who have the
keys to open them is the police who then
give this passenger a very warm welcome
upon arrival.

I heard they had him handcuffed as well. I think most airlines carry them now. It is incredible how the these instances have increased since it was given the trendy "air-rage" name. Or maybe we just hear about it a bit more because of a greater media presence and better communication technologies? Anyways, there is nothing worse than putting up with a moron on a flight.


P.S. Scotty, you are a shocker mate. I will never be able to pass a crew rest area again without blocking my ears and closing my eyes
