Airline Staff To Blame Of Air Rage This Time?

Fri May 11, 2001 10:37 am

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.

A 17 year old kid who probably looked older than his age. What is the drinking age in Singapore?

I saw something in the paper about that incident as well but have heard nothing since. Perhaps SIA are trying to keep it low key.

SQ 326 bound for Frankfurt from Singapore diverted to New Delhi where the passenger was offloaded and sent back to Singapore to stand trial. He was given 2 months jail.
