I receive and enjoy David Rowell's - the Travel Insider - newsletters. In discussing a recent situation in which a Jet Blue captain allegedly removed a passenger for less than compelling reasons (and of course this is only one side of the story), Rowell goes on to write, in part: This regrettable incident is merely the tip of the iceberg. How many times have we read about passengers being taken off planes for 'being unruly'. When making such accusations, and taking such actions, airlines should be compelled to involve every passenger from several seats all around the allegedly unruly passenger, with all those passengers not just giving statements but being required to sign complaints about the alleged unruliness. Furthermore, every such allegation must be followed up either with the arrest and trial of the passenger so complained about, or, alternatively, with the arrest and trial of the captain and crew for lodging false complaints and for wasting police time. The current situation, where a captain in the cockpit can say 'I am god, and she is unruly' and have the police obediently do whatever he says, with no supportive testimony from unbiased other passengers, is being roundly and regularly abused and must stop. http://blog.thetravelinsider.info/2...ad/thetravelinsider+(The+Travel+Insider+Blog) While I think he's carrying it beyond the reasonable - demanding that charges be laid against, somebody, anybody - I can't help but feel there's possibly a germ of truth in there. What do others think?
