    MONTREAL -- Two pilots on an Air Canada Jazz flight were forced to break up a fight between two passengers who were brawling over a pair of headphones, police say.

    One of the men was kicked off the flight at Trudeau Airport and has been arraigned on several charges.

    The altercation delayed the flight to Winnipeg on Tuesday afternoon.

    Montreal police spokesman Dany Richer said officers were called to the plane, which was still at the gate.

    Apparently it's not just dangerous for the flight crew when they're staying in YWG. It's also dangerous getting there.

    let's hope there is no internal bulletin about this! I think AC has learned their lesson! ;)

    As for brawling over headphones -- yeesh!

    Well, getting there is supposed to be half the fun. :D

    Seriously, though, it sounds like a hell of a lousy day for the flight crew and all the other passengers.

    So who was arrested, the person who broke the headphones or the person who owned the headphones. Who got dragged into the police car and tried to wreck it?

    Perhaps if mike_asia was around he could have sold the second person some headphones.;)

    We may never know but maybe the combatants didn't know you could get Aeroplan, I mean Aimia, miles for purchasing new Bose headphones. And I say Bose as that's the only type I'd start throwing overhand lefts if they were broken by some idiot with a fat as* sitting on 'em. :D

    Maybe the fight was staged in the honour of the Jets being back in town. Or they were auditioning?

    Probably better than any of the players the Jets have, since the former owners only cared about bringing the team under budget shipping off any real talent (I may live in ATL, but better for them to leave for owners who actually care)

    My guess would be the guy who owned the headphones, since he would have been angry about it, would be the likely one to start the fight, and would be most likely to resist arrest since he would think he was the victim.

    The guy they arrested was 26. I'm pretty sure they weren't Bose headphones, since I've never seen them on anyone under 30. But those darn kids these days have all kinds of fancy headphones that they get possessive over, so it doesn't surprise me.

    My bet, Monster Beats headphones by Dr. Dre! They are all over the place now. They are not cheap, $350 a pair, but still not worth fighting over, esp on a plane where it will be more than a 2 minute misconduct penalty!
