    Airline Industry Targets Unruly Passengers

    By Matt Alderton

    Unruly and irate passengers aren’t just irritating. They’re also dangerous. For that reason, governments must close legal loopholes that allow such passengers to escape prosecution for serious offenses committed on board aircraft, according to the International Air Transport Association (IATA), which last week hosted a diplomatic conference to discuss the issue.

    I say they should just kick these people off the plane - mid-flight. :D

    Unfortunately, the unruliness may be exacerbated by drinks served during flight. Rarely do you see an unruly passenger asked to leave before pushback; most of them are hauled off piss-a$$ drunk after landing. If kicking them off mid-flight were an option, I'd be all for it. I suppose someone would have to ask the Captain to please descend to 10,000ft first. Otherwise those darn O2 masks would deploy and block the IFE screens the rest of the trip!!
    Excellent story. I'm glad someone's attention is focused on this.

    Doesn't matter. Just attach a camera to the guy before you toss him out the door. That'll be all the IFE anyone needs. :D

    Pardon me for the crudeness, but with the comment about piss-a$$ drunk, my mind got to straying and wondering if any of the notorious drunks kicked off the planes, ever lost control of their bladder when they realized they were probably spending at least the night in the hoosegow?
