    Ah come on now. Plane landed safely. Title makes it sound like it was shot out of the sky.


    Edit: Fair play OP, New title is much more reasonable.

    Seriously bad form. Get rowdy on a night out fair enough but on a plane?

    Can we have a thread on how many planes in the US are diverted due drunk passengers from 'X' location. it imagine hundreds a year.

    There are dickheads and crazys from everywhere.

    Is this a serious post or is it supposed to be ironic or something?

    Why is it ok to get rowdy on a night out ?

    People who pull that **** on planes should be seriously sanctioned.

    Everything I don't like is either woke or fascist - possibly both - pick one.



  • Closed Accounts Posts: 199 ✭✭megabantz


    A lot of people dismissing this as a non story but in reality 2 drunk irish (I would bet my house they are tracksuit wearing kind drinking dutch in a field) start slapping the head off each other mid flight! It's disgraceful way to act.

    I think it's punishment enough that he's blown a lot of money on flights, accommodation and probably a fight ticket :pac:

    People sometimes let off steam on a night out... Speaking loudly, pushing etc. I don't agree its nice behaviour but the impact is less and you can generally avoid idiots like this. On a plane this isn't possible. Screwing around on a plane in the US is just stupid.

    And what about the other people on the flight? Talk about stress/inconvenience etc etc.

    Nothing compared to the number of flights diverted to Shannon every year thanks to drunk loud mouth obnoxious Americans who keep shouting at the crew "Do you know who I am?"


  • Registered Users Posts: 4,359 ✭✭✭whomitconcerns


    If you want to act the Arse on a night out, do it at home with your own friends. No excuse ever to do it in an evironment affecting other people...especially not in a confined space

    Acting the moron on a plane anywhere is just stupid. Okay, there's the mild added risk of being shot, but honestly, could they not control themselves for the length of the flight and smack each other around when they weren't screwing the day of 274 other people?

    I would put them on the smelliest and slowest cargo ship back to Ireland.

    Being responsible for causing a plane to land for any reason other than emergency is probably criminal, could even lead to the persons involved being put on a "F*ck off out of our country and never come back" lists. I suspect the people involved live in the moment though and go through life without any consideration for consequences.

    Do we need mandatory breathalying before being allowed on board a plane?

    Going by the thread title I assumed that some drunken Irish had overran the cockpit and flown the plane into the ground.

    I hope all concerned get a hiding this weekend inside and outside the ring

    If you do it at home then it isn't a night out though is it.

    In fairness who hasn't got a plane diverted at least once? Everyone makes mistakes.

    I don't. What about all the people who missed flights or events owing to their behaviour?

    The people who caused the trouble suffered due to their own actions, whereas the remaining pax and crew suffered because of the actions of others. Huge difference, and I would like to see huge sanctions applied as a result.

    We need stronger, world-wide, multi-airline bans for people who act the maggot on an aircraft. This needs to be universally understood as unacceptable, and seemingly the only way to get that message across is with bans. Ideally it would prevent new people from behaving this way, but at a bare minimum, it would prevent repeat offenders.

    The first rule of Plane Fight Club is you're a d*ck, off to jail with you.

    Hopefully they go prison. As in proper prison, American Prison.

    Actually this is quite a serious incident in the states, could easily be landed in jail and then the airline could sue for various costs, which could well run into 20k + easy. Madness!
