Some of the theatrics performed by people who have missed their flights can be quite impressive indeed. I've seen threats, violence, complete emotional breakdowns....this one though, a whole new level.

Most importantly, the flight departed 21 minutes late and arrived ontime in Amsterdam!

Their block time 'creativity', as you call it, is an industry standard in this case. Dublin - Amsterdam:

Aer Lingus: 1h 45m
Ryanair: 1h 40m
KLM: 1h 40m

Great, what do you propose? Maybe lock him up for good? Add some caning? Whipping? Hand him over to ISIS? Perhaps chop his head off?

Seriously, he broke a lock and ran out on the tarmac, obviously has some mental issues, and who knows what issues. Big deal. Not the end of the world. That's why there is security at the airport to control stuff when something spills over.

Aviation people just seem to consider everything relating to aviation as "holy", humane human behavior is just plain bad and evil.

Has there ever been any real threat to anyone in aviation history, just because some individual spontaneously lost his/her nerves? I could see that happening to any one of us, in the right (or actually wrong) circumstances.

It's easy to be the one casting stones.

He followed it up with some particularly charming behaviour in court. Probably not all that SFW by the way.

I don't know that his actions mean he "obviously has some mental issues." He may feel entitled --> I bought my ticket; I'm getting on that plane.

It’s a “big deal” as you note, because it impacts thousands of travelers, costs tens of thousands of dollars, and scrambles busy operations impacting exponentially more people.

An idiot like this should be dealt with harshly. A precedent-setting consequence fit for such an act is a key consideration for all interested parties looking to head off more of the same.

From the article:
Patrick Kehoe (23), from Raheenaskeagh, Oulart, Co Wexford, ran past news photographers and then dropped his trousers and mooned at them after he was released on bail by Dublin District Court.

What would you have us do instead? Write poetry of the valiant ramp runner galloping towards his mighty metal steed? Or perhaps we should all just guzzle the haterade (to borrow from another reply) and be blindingly angry to no end? Tell us exactly what we should be doing instead of joking about an incident that caused no harm to anyone and didn’t ding Ryanair’s precious on-time arrival?

Jeez, get off your high horses people...

Most important I don't know about, but it certainly shows that FR's block times are no more creative than those of its two competitors on the route.

I would think the fine for an airport security breach would be substantial. There is a reason why doors to restricted areas such as the ramp are controlled with locks and alarms.

Incidents like this have happened in the past with FR. Why is it that we don't hear of such incidents with other airlines?

When I worked at OSL 15 years ago, I saw a guy showing up too late at the gate. He then jumped over the counter, grabbed a radio and started yelling at the aircraft to stop so he could board. The plane was already pushing back.
