Hooligans Prompt TK Diversion

Mon Nov 02, 2015 12:28 pm

As above, flight TK1450, reg TC-JVG, operating from OPO to IST diverted to Rome yesterday (01/NOV) due to Unruly Passengers.

A bunch of hooligans (FC Porto fans) became unruly and abusive towards the flight crew and other passengers, and a fistfight between pax ensued. Captain declared an emergency and landed at Rome Fiumicino, where the police boarded the plane and made four arrests.

Flight continued later to IST (minus 4 pax) where it landed with a delay of aprox 2 hours.

I say they're lucky the plane diverted to Rome.

It is amazing this doesn't happen more after a few drinks and a snide remark...

How are these things handled, does the luggage of the unruly passengers get unloaded?

Frst you get warned by the FA's.If not comply with it,Purser informs the Captain.Captain signs a warning sheet,stating that if you don't stop behaving like that you will face some consequences of legal issues,and you will be charged for all expenses caused by airplane diversion,missing of connections of other passengers,landing fees,fuel fees etc.I have issed this warning couple of times and all of them stopped their behaviour.If the passenger is a single person,there is a "restraint kit" on board and with the order of the Captain,the unruly passenger may be handcuffed by the flight crew.In this case they were a group and Captain selected to divert and let the police handle the problem.And yes everything belongs to unruly passengers are offloaded and the aircraft goes through another security check before all doors closed.

Celtic fans had a Vigo-Glasgow fight diverted to Cardiff. They were fighting amongst themselves, as is the norm.
