Incident on BEG-LHR Flight

Mon Mar 20, 2017 6:22 pm

News hitting the airwaves of yet another passenger disturbance - this time on an Air Serbia service between Belgrade and London this morning.

Four passengers bearing British passports of Pakistani decent refused to obey orders not to smoke, harassed passengers and crew, and shouted obscenities onboard, making threats when warned about their behaviour.

The four we're arrested upon landing at Heathrow. There's a public outcry in Serbia as to why the flight was not diverted considering that the 4 thugs endangered flight safety.

I'm surprised myself as to why there wasn't a diversion, unless it would have meant an overweight landing.

The "pearl" from the incident was that the offending passengers accused the crew and other passengers of blatant racism following a lady crew issuing them with a written warning of their behaviour and confiscating their cigarettes and lighter.

Some people are just not meant to be out in public unsupervised...
