Time to crack down on badly behaved bogans

It is happening with monotonous regularity, all over the world. 

People decide that the fact they are in an aircraft is no bar to behaving badly - very badly. 

A 25-year-old woman is in police custody in the UK this weekend after becoming disruptive on a Jet2 flight from Stansted to Dalaman in Turkey, which was forced to return to the UK, escorted by two RAF jets.

Travel Mole said the female passenger became abusive 45 minutes into the flight early on Saturday evening, allegedly attacking staff, threatening fellow passengers and attempting to get into the cockpit.

She was eventually restrained and the aircraft returned to Stansted, with backup from fighter jets from RAF Coningsby, Lincolnshire.

Jet2 said: "We are aware of an incident regarding an extremely disruptive passenger on a flight from Stansted to Dalaman earlier this evening.

"The aircraft has returned safely and we are liaising with the relevant authorities to support their investigation. We are working hard to ensure the remaining customers reach their destination as soon as possible."

So hundreds of people were inconvenienced a delayed by one (alleged) imbecile.  

Time for action. Anyone who acts up on a plane should be restrained and banned from flying for life. A global ban that is vigorously enforced. 

The thought of not ever being able to fly again should give pause to even the most idiotic of morons in a hurry. 

Anyone found guilty should also pay the costs involved - and an RAF escort does not come cheap. 

The woman was arrested on suspicion of two assaults and endangering an aircraft. She remains in custody.
