According to AFP, cited by Mexican newspaper El Economista, an inebriated Mexican citizen threatened to blow IC854, apparently flown with a A320, with 88 people on board. The flight was diverted in emergency to Calcutta. Nothing has been found so far in the airplane. Sorry, the note is only in spanish.

Considering India has suffered terrorist attacks in the recent months, this buster may find himself miserably behind bars -and very far away from any bar- for a long time... Geez, it's amazing what booze can make some people do some times!!

Mexicano amenaza con estallar avión hindú
La policía india detuvo a un pasajero mexicano, que se encontraba en estado de ebriedad, de un vuelo entre Bangkok y Nueva Delhi después de que éste amenazara con hacer estallar el avión con 88 personas a bordo.

Nueva Delhi.- La policía india detuvo a un pasajero mexicano de un vuelo entre Bangkok y Nueva Delhi después de que éste amenazara con hacer estallar el avión con 88 personas a bordo, declaró el miércoles a la AFP un portavoz de la compañía estatal Indian.

El aparato tuvo que efectuar un aterrizaje de emergencia en el aeropuerto de Calcutta, precisó el portavoz, Ashok Sharma.

“El vuelo 854 está siendo registrado para ver si hay explosivos”, agregó.

El pasajero fue identificado únicamente como un ciudadano mexicano que se encontraba en estado de ebriedad, según la misma fuente.

“El avión, que transportaba 82 pasajeros y seis tripulantes, aterrizó de emergencia a las 09H45 GMT en Calcutta, donde el hombre fue detenido”, declaró Ashok Sharma.

“No se le encontró ningún explosivo encima pero el hombre decía que tenía explosivos a bordo del avión por lo que evidentemente, los pasajeros fueron desembarcados y el aparato está siendo inspeccionado”, explicó.

El aeropuerto internacional de Calcutta fue puesto en alerta máxima antiterrorista, precisaron responsables de la oficina de seguridad de la Aviación civil india.

Las alertas antiterroristas son frecuentes en India, país que fue golpeado por al menos tres atentados graves en los últimos 18 meses.

Anyone using the threat of bombing or violence of any sort on board a plane, sober or otherwise, needs to be thrown in jail....it does amount to terrorism (maybe not in the sense that the word is used these days) because the person is using the threat of terror against others.....

Dont think so. If he had the dough to travel that far away, he´d surely have it to pay for the mexican jails privileges well known by all who live in this beautifiul country.
I doubt his money´s worth where he´s being held now.

That is correct, but in Mexico and other parts of Spanish speaking America, Hindu is used to described Indian nationals in general to differentiate from Native Americans because as you may know, the native people of the Americas were termed to be "Indians" by all the European colonizers and so in Spanish, and English refering to an Indian most likely refers to a Native American.

And That explanation is just about right. We don't have that differentiation in Spanish as the English language an many others have.


Anyway, what an A$$. But as someone said earlier maybe he just got to money to do whatever he wants. In my own case, I could be drinking my face off but I would never say something as stupid, not even to scare someone.

What an idiot... He must have scared the sh#t off on everyone on board. He deserves a sobering jail time just out of that alone...

But my question is... Are idiots like this held responsible to pay the costs of diverting the airplane in emergency, and the costs incurred by the receiving airport and police forces to handle this potentially threatening situation?

Question - I know that airlines often seek damages (financial) from people that create the need for a diversion. I'm wondering, beyond the joys (well deserved) of an Indian jail...if this guy can be squeezed for the cost of the incident.

thoughts?

I hope he was released! In America, it is Federal policy to allow our Mexicans 6 felonies before we consider deportation. (New York Times, today, should you wish to verify).

Idiot.

Christian population is around 30 million, and Muslim population is around 150 million.

And it is absolutely wrong to refer to all Indians as 'Hindu'.....a Hindu is one who follows the religion of Hinduism..... smile

IMHO, anyone suffering a loss or damage can fill a lawsuit against against any damage-causing person (whether legal or individual). In this case, it would seem likely the suitors would file against an Indian court, considering the airplane flew under an indian flag, it was diverted to Calcutta, and the prisoner is being held in an Indian jail...

Boy, is this guy screwed up or what?
