    I hope they release more data on what actually happened during the air-rage incident.

    209 pax. Three hour delay. I value my time at $250/hour. So they should add $750/pax, payable to the passengers. Nothing else would be fair.

    Can the 208 fellow pax sue her individually in small claims court?

    People like who pull this crap should be thrown off the plane while it's still in the air. Yes, I know it's physically impossible to open the door in the air, but still.

    There seems to be a lot of that going around, and even in the "F-list" circles.

    Unfortunately, most of us get exposed to it too often.

    I've been seeing more of it in G-FC on UA to/from LHR. I always have to ask my wife, "who IS that, who's causing the fuss?" I don't keep up on "personalities," and skied all day with Jill St. John at Aspen, never knowing who she was. My wife does better, than I, but never recognizes any of the miscreants either. I do not think that the FA's do, unless they read the pax manifest, and then confer with others. My feeling is that if they are really A-listers, they would be flying their own 739-ER's, and not commercial with me.

    If what I have read about the incident is true - throw the book at her!

    Hey, that's an idea that I can vote for.

    I used to drive a narrow bridge, 2 small lanes in each direction, and about 4 miles long. There were always a few folk, who caused accidents through their aggressive and poor driving. I always thought that they should add "dump stations," and those people, and their autos, should be dumped, and quickly. Only about 900' to the river.

    If, as she says,the name "Lauren" is an albatross around her neck, perhaps she should have gone back to the family name Lifshitz! Really, she's not even his daughter so someone else in the family must have decided it was not an albatross but rather a trophy. Be careful what you ask for!

    One normal commuter plane had a back ramp that could be opened during flights, maybe a 727?

    When DL first put flatbeds, the one route that got it was JFK/ATL-BOM. I recall an incident, not between a FA & Pax; but two pax. The first heavy set woman calling another similarly mass-distributed woman "Who you calling fat you b***" I presume the context was inability to get up from an awkward 1/2 inclined flatbed.

    The Lauren woman suffered from similar self-delusion !

    Perhaps she was intoxicated when she plead guilty?
