Cabin Incident—ANA Flight 6 NRT-LAX

Mon May 01, 2017 6:18 pm

Japanese media is reporting that an intoxicated male passenger disrupted the cabin of ANA Flight 6 prior to takeoff from Narita International May 1. During the incident several passengers as well as a male flight attendant were, apparently, struck or scratched. The offending passenger, who was taken into custody, was described as being in his 40s and of American nationality. At the time of the episode, ANA Flight 6 NRT-LAX was delayed due to thunderstorm activity. It eventually departed one hour and 40 minutes later than scheduled.

Please feel free to keep him as long as you like.

It gets worse. One Japanese news outlet is reporting the offending passenger assaulted the flight attendant by placing both of his hands around the attendant's neck.

http://www.fnn-news.com/news/headlines/ ... 56974.html

Clearly, this individual will be looking at spending some time in prison if what's being reported holds true. The Japanese do not take kindly to this kind of behavior, to say the least. The American Embassy might be able to get him an earlier release, but it will be a stretch. Prison time in Japan can be tough as there is strict regimen and rules. Break the rules and it gets ... much tougher.

Actually no. Several Canadian flights have been diverted because of drunken related violence and Asian passengers have also been involved in violence.

Here's a link to a news report in English with pictures and video of the incident. Looks bad.

The younger guy has much better technique, good balance and great follow through..at least compared to Tommy Bahama. The last right hook in the video looks solid and he gets that shot off from the back foot with excellent weight movement to the front left foot. It's a shame he doesn't leave his row because I think we'd have gotten more out of Round 2 and likely a full count KO. All in all a net neutral showing for the US, one douchebag sullying the colors and the other restoring a measure of glory with a solid display of pugilistic skill.

PS: there is something here for Airbus..possibly "1 inch doesn't seem like much but when it's missing this is what happens."

ANA configure their international 777s with 9 abreast in Y so probably not.

The 77W on flights NH6 / NH5 have a 10 abreast economy cabin.

All the American Embassy will do is to follow the trial to ensure that the Japanese authorities properly follow their own procedures and may connect him with a lawyer. The State Department's website is pretty clear on this:
"We cannot:

Get U.S. citizens out of jail
State to a court that anyone is guilty or innocent
Provide legal advice or represent U.S. citizens in court
Serve as official interpreters or translators
Pay legal, medical, or other fees"

https://travel.state.gov/content/passpo ... rrest.html

Basically, if you're an American citizen and decide to be an idiot and break the law of the foreign country you're in, by, let's say, getting into a drunken brawl on an airplane, you're SOL from the US Embassy's point of view.

Yes, you're absolutely correct. An American citizen who breaks the law in a foreign country will find little to no help if they appeal to the U.S. Embassy for assistance. I was aware of that and should have rephrased my earlier statement before posting. As you noted, the Embassy may suggest the names of lawyers or counselors, but that's about, unless the situation elevates to a certain degree where some sort of diplomacy is called for, which is rare.

The Japanese, like the authorities of most other countries, want to dispose of situations with foreign nationals as quickly as possible. Ideally, the offending individual would simply be deported. Regarding the incident aboard ANA Flight 6, because the accused assaulted a flight attendant, a Japanese citizen on Japan soil, the judicial process likely will move forward. The perpetrator is probably still in a jail at this time and will remain there for the time being. I believe Japanese authorities can hold a person up to 23 days before being officially charged with a crime. If he admits everything and sincerely apologizes, the extent of the punishment—a hefty fine, jail time, or both—may be less severe. As a American foreign national who probably can draw on financial resources to hire legal assistance he just might be able to dodge a prison sentence. As I noted, the Japanese authorities want this situation disposed of. They want this guy gone.
