Truly amazing! Today might have been another sad day if it was not for intervention of this sack of sh*t in Miami!  Wow!

Well, with cutbacks on service, perhaps he wanted to cook his own meal.

LOL, yeah- it reminds me of that incident on a middle-eastern flight where someone supposedly tried to cook an animal in the aisle.

As for being stopped in Jamaica- I think I have a scenario:

"Jamaican security screener: "Hey mon, is that a c-note in your pocket?"

Grill idiot: "Why yes it is, would you like it?"

Jamaican security screener: "Sure, mon- go on through""

 Big grin

Hey fresh cooked food whole onboard sounds better than a crushed Subway sandwich stuffed in your bag!  Laugh out loud

If memory serves me right there was also an incident years ago when a pilgrim on a Saudi Airlines flight taking part in Mecca flights caused fire and ultimate destruction of aircraft due to cooking with gas stove inflight. I believe the aircraft involved was an L1011.

Packing canisters of any gas to take aboard an aircraft is generally a poor idea.

Lots of contraband comes up on flights operating from MBJ and KIN (and I mean lots). Most prohibited items, however, are of the Green and/or White variety.

From Serge: Jamaican security screener: "Sure, mon- go on through"

Actually the security in MBJ was the toughest I have even seen in this hemisphere PRE 9/11. They had us taking off our shoes (odd, for back then), checking luggage thoroughly. This was prior to boarding a Chartered ATA 727 back to the States in June 2001. The security at MBJ struck me as the LEAST corrupt of all the people the entire vacation.

I think a third party shipper was partly or wholly responsible for ValuJet 592.

From American757Im gonna try bringin my lawn mower through next time i fly.

FUNNY YOU MENTION THAT. When I was working MBJ flights, there were some Jamaican citizens who bought lawn movers and weed whackers a K-Mart and brought them back to MBJ.

On the L-1011 fire, legend has it that the fire was caused by a passenger cooking in the cabin. The actual cause was a fire in the mid hydraulic service center behind the forward galley and below the cabin. The fire gained entry to the cabin by burning through the floor.

Haha, FlyingTexan, reminds me of watching flights board to from DFW to Mexico. Often you'll see people carrying on boxes with microwaves, toasters, blenders, and other household items, not to mention stuffed Walmart bags.
