Surprised this hasn't been posted yet ...
Hermes heir Mathias Guerrand-Hermes is facing federal charges for assaulting the captain of a CDG-JFK flight on AF earlier this week. He's charged with grabbing the captain in ... let's just say a senstive part of the captain's body.

Quoting PROSA (Thread starter): [On a serious note: why would the captain leave the cockpit to deal with a disruptive passenger? I thought that was strictly prohibited.]
It happens from time to time. Sometimes the passengers, or a passenger for that matter become much to much for even the cabin crew to handle. However, the Captain, ultimately is the last resource you should use.

Quoting 777jaah (Reply 7): And according to the pic this happened in AFs 380?? Again, journalists.....
It's not even like they grabbed a stock shot...they found a rendering of an AF whalejet and took the time to superimpose the guys face on it.... Maybe they should spend more time fact checking than they do on using Msft. Paint?
When you have to breaststroke to your connecting flight...it's a crash!

It's an unfortunate circumstance but fortunately for the thug-heir, he's on his own turf. My guess is that some phone calls ($$$$$) will be exchanged in Paris, and this matter will disappear. The spoiled party will in turn attend some sobriety program in Martinique and that shall be the end of it.

I got all excited when I saw the word Hermes. Thought you meant the aircraft ( silly me thinking this was an aircraft website!!!) Only joking but it would be amazing as the Hermes operated by BOAC flew to africa etc and , to the best of my knowledge, did not fly transatlantic. I did once go on one but did not fly.

Another drunken fool gets stupid on an airflight. He must have been really stupid to hit on some guys wife. I do hope he gets charged with a crime, he pleads guilty, goes to some real jail then gets rehab. Then I hope he is banned from flying for a few years unless under very strict standards including being totally sober and no drinking before or during the flight.
Perhaps we just get more attention of such problems more often in the post-9/11 world as on a airplane, but still too many disruptions and bad behaviors by drunks or druggies on flights are happening. All airlines need to sue and recover the additional costs from such events especially if they have to divert and make sure such fools pay for their abusive behaviors.
