A Boeing 747-400 en route from Singapore to Frankfurt was forced to make an emergency landing in New Delhi on 25Apr when a 17 year old Australian passenger turned violent after being refused more alcohol.
After landing 7 people required treatment for minor injuries at New Delhi airport.
I just saw the above on the www.
1) Has anyone got more details of this incident
2) What on earth was the airlines doing serving a 17 year old alcohol anyways? It states he got pissy after being refused MORE alcohol!

Serving alcohol to a 17 year old kid onboard an aircraft sounds a bit weird. But I guess it also depends on the rules of the country that the airline is from concerning alcohol. What airline was the kid flying? My guess it was either SIA or Lufthansa.
