It isn't funny.

All of us here use aircraft, so I don't suppose any one of us will see the joke when a fellow passenger tells us he has a bomb which he's about to detonate and holds a mobile phone in each hand.

Brit MW is in court accused of doing just that on an Emirates flight into Dubai and he's admitted saying it and admitted being intoxicated.

A drunken passenger saying he's about to detonate a bomb. Great, that makes flying so much more fun.

You know what he told the court?

He told Presiding Judge Fahmi Mounir that he develops anxiety and when he consumes liquor he suffers from constant worry.

I hardly know where to begin.

If that's the effect alcohol has on him why does he drink? And why does he think it's a funny to to impose anxiety and worry on others?

I hope the court throws the book at him.

Gulf News has the report here.

I just don't understand what it is about people that makes them think they can do this sort of thing. "Normal" people wouldn't even think of doing something like this - are the number of weirdo's on the increase or am I getting less tolerant as I get older?

Billy I'm certain it's a combination of the two. The number of prats out there is increasing alarmingly, and the number we've come across rises with each passing year, making us more frustrated with their crass stupidity.

Why the hell is an intoxicated passenger allowed on a plane?

Seabee said...

LDU, he probably got drunk on the plane, which is even worse.

If this moron gets a bad reaction to alcohol why can't he just avoid it? Or at least avoid it on a flight when his anxiety levels are going to be high anyway? Its not compulsory to get legless on a flight, just because its "free" does not mean you have to drink all of it. Its NOT the alcohol's fault, it's his!

He's an utter prat and if he'd been on my flight he'd be talking with a squeaky voice by now!! Hope they throw away the key.
