Everyone remember the little mishap between the 2 drunk sisters heading to Shanghai for a modeling contest??? The flight turned around 1000 miles or so to Anchorage causing obvious humiliation to the on-board passengers.

What do you think about the amount of alcohol served on a flight to a noticable drunk passenger? Should the FAs limit the service?

I personally belive that Alcohol is one of the leading causes in air rage. While it may not be the the primary cause, in most air-rage cases, alcohol is apparent. In domestic US flights, alcohol is not free, but on international flights, people can drink their hearts out. When the Flight Attendant trys to cut them off, you can get air-rage. Personally, I feel that liquor products should only be consumed during the meal service, and hard liquor should be banned from all flights.

ILUV767, you're right about that. I cannot forget the numerous air-rage incidents I have seen on international flights. The most interesting one was when a Japanese passenger (after consuming tons of sake) took off his clothes and tried to jump on the service cart...

It is no secret that Alcohol reduces inhibitions. The loss of these inhibitions, in the extreme, will strip a person of the normal ability to stop themselves from doing stupid things.

Take a stressful situation, which flying always becomes. Add some alcohol and more stress, then add some more alcohol and things go all pear shaped.

I have even witnessed some air-rage in a train. Where the passenger had had quite a few beers, and was becoming abnoxious to the dinning car attendant. The problem is not unique to airplanes, except that there are many stations along the way to turn an surly passenger in to the authorities along the train track. On a plane, a diversion is an extreme price to pay.

Oh...and this,

What about serving alcohol to exit row passengers? I tell you, I dont want someone drunk responsible to open that exit in an emergency.

Drinking in an exit row should be all out banned.
