A plague of airline passengers keen to make an in-flight exit

Anyone who travels regularly has come across a nightmare fellow airline passenger.

There is the fellow flyer who farts; the passenger in front who reclines their seat fully immediately the seat belt sign goes off, the fatty who intrudes on your seat space and the chatty chappy next door who simply won't shut up.

None of these merit physical aggression, but what if the passenger seated next to you is a behaving like a certified lunatic?

A 26-year-old woman appeared in court last month accused of trying to open the door on a Jet2 flight from Stansted to Dalaman in Turkey.

A cabin crew member was allegedly scratched as she tried to stop the incident, Travel Mole reported. .
The plane had to be escorted back to Stansted by two RAF fighter jets.

And just this week another nutter suffering from a “panic attack” tried to make an in-air exit from a British Airways flight between Heathrow and Riyadh.

He was eventually subdued by fellow passengers. Not the air crew. He may face charges.

British Airways said it was impossible for an aircraft door to open in flight but ignored how it was passengers, not crew, who restrained the deranged fool.

A BA spokesperson said: “Our cabin crew cared for a customer who suffered from a panic attack during the flight. We are sorry for any concern this caused our customers.”

In the earlier case, Chloe Haines, of High Wycombe, appeared before Chelmsford magistrates charged with assault and acting in a manner likely to endanger an aircraft.

She was released on bail on the condition she does not travel from any UK airport.

If I had been sitting anywhere near this person, and she behaved in the manner alleged, then I would feel entitled to try to restrain her - and possibly hurt her. Your thoughts?
