Drunk pax vomits on woman's head on NK flight

Fri Oct 11, 2019 3:32 pm

Wonder why he was not arrested...that's assault, isn't it?
:vomit:

Spirit Airlines flight was reportedly delayed yesterday morning after an allegedly drunk passenger threw up in a woman's hair and had to be escorted off the plane.

I am assuming she was not traveling with a male, because surely that male would have gotten up and beaten the snot out of him :mad:

Lol... It happens. Was on a 4hr Christmas Eve WN flight several years back. Obviously drunk when he came aboard, guy in the row on front of me stands up, says “ I think I’m gonna be sick!”, and proceeds to projectile vomit across the four rows in front of him. There is a reason I try to get the back row, when riding in coach.

You choose the back row on every flight to avoid being thrown up on?

Yeah, I mean, NO, hell no, people even remotely intoxicated should never NEVER be allowed to board. What's wrong with the crew who lets this happen?! Wasn'it already obvious that he was intoxicated??? I once had a very loooooong miserable night transatlantic crossing because of this single drunk dick who kept everyone awake. That time too the F/As 'kindly' closed a blind eye upon boarding to let this 'funny' gentleman board his flight. And they even kept serving him alcohol.

Whoa easy there. They are already prohibited from boarding by the FAA. There is a reason that a flight attendant stands at the boarding door, as they are looking for these and other security- and safety-related issues. When I was a flight attendant, I caught multiple people this way, and followed the FAR by having them removed from the aircraft. But not everyone visibly displays intoxication the same way. Furthermore, vomiting does not happen at a pre-determined level of intoxication. I pulled a blind-drunk passenger off a flight who did not vomit during the process, but conversely I heard stories from other flight attendants of passengers vomiting (not in someone's hair) that otherwise did not appear notably intoxicated. Bottom line is the crew is already doing the best it can - per government order - to shut this down.

Many, many moons ago, I denied a guy who was obviously drunk, couldn’t even stand without holding on to the podium.
It turned in to a months-long HR nightmare, turned out the guy was an exec of some company, and friends with the son of an Exec VP.

It’s much easier to let someone else make that call, and just pass them on. Is it right? Probably not, but that is what the culture creates.

Of course, if you are able to use a bag, just be careful where it comes from...

Assault would mean that the offender had mens rea (evil intent). That doesn't appear to be the case here. I think perhaps the worst you could get him with would be something along the lines of "Intoxicated and disruptive". It's really disappointing when people do stuff like this and have zero consequences. The other pax should sue him for emotional distress.

I thought so, too. I just assumed that there was always someone throwing-up on any NK flight.

That's what I was waiting four....the NK jokes.

Apparently, barfing on an airplane is not aviation-related :roll:

Spirit means spirits right ?

Unfortunate and disgusting to happen, but if I was the FA, I would have to look at who allowed such a drunk on board. Maybe they escaped notice, maybe not. On the other hand vomit can happen due to illness as well. Maybe the stomach was already upset due to a nasty virus.

Maybe there was some binge drinking happening, with the PAX not that intoxicated, but his stomach definitely upset by its content ?

Flying from Austin to Dallas on an early morning flight for Texas-OU weekend, back when I was in college, I went to sleep once we took off. The college age female that was sitting beside me, had been up late partying I assume, anyway, as we began descending, she confessed to me that she had gotten sick during the flight and had used the barf bag, which was no longer there. I wondered why she had told me this before she got up to exit the plane. Then, as I was getting my things together, I noticed a small barf chunk on my tennis shoe. I used a napkin and wiped it off. I'm actually glad I slept through it.

Back in 1984 I was thrown up on by a drunken passenger on a Republic DC-9 LAS-DEN. I was given a Republic t-shirt and a Republic "Frisbee" (I still have it). My dad received some sort of financial compensation on my ticket. Our next door neighbor was the captain and he was rather embarrassed by the incident, since we had gone out of our way to fly on his flight. A DC-9 is 2-3 seating; my parents were on the 2 side and I was sitting on the isle of the 3 side. The guy next to me puked all over himself and some got on my shirt. Looking back in it; it was hilarious.
