    In this case, it's a reassuring YES Sir. :)

    I don't understand why they would apologize!

    The question I am interested in is: are the drugs flushed in the toilets legal in the originating country?
    If it was a case of legal here, illegal there, then this is a great service.
    If the drugs flushed had been illegal as well at the originating country (how did it get through customs), then could this be argued as abetting a "crime"?

    Modern day pollination :) Seeds dispersed at high altitude will soon have harvests of ganja :)

    On our honeymoon in 1970 we flew to London on Laker Airways (a charter then but later to become a low-cost airline). Sir Freddy himself was sitting in front of us - though he had not yet been knighted.

    About an hour after take-off (and remember, smoking on airplanes was allowed back then), a fellow across the aisle from us lit up a joint and after taking a few hits, started to pass it around. After about 60 seconds, Sir Freddy called the stewardess over and told her to tell him that if it did not disappear, he would be arrested on landing.

    I'm sitting there with my new wife astounded. I asked her - "what's he going to do if he gets caught? Open a window and throw it out?!" Still laughing about it.

    However, Freddy Laker couldn't allow it- it would cut into the profitable liquor sales.

    I've taken the jumpseat a few times to get one more person on the flight especially if it was actually one person left on the standby list.

    These people need to be more grateful though the pilot erred in this situation.
