The sentence was more of a "you naughty boy" than a penalty and 500 compensation is an insult. Flybe's reaction is reasonable but far better would have a lifetime ban from every UK airport. Then the punishment would fit the crime. This scumbag will just fly with someone else.

Look at it this way. He's technically classed as a criminal. He'll probably never get another job. Insurances companies etc will give him a hard time and so on. He'll certainly pay for the rest of his miserable life.

Agreed he should be barred from every UK carrier.

Why was the custodial sentence suspended? The Judge must have announced reasons.

Is unrestricted airline travel now a "human right"?

Where does this come from for Heaven's sake?

Equally, what have insurance companies to do with this? How could they have any input?

People with criminal records get jobs too - it may be harder (until the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act kicks in and you no longer need to divulge it) but it isn't a bar to employment. Far from paying for the rest of his miserable life (such fanciful invention) it'll all be behind him in not many years - see R of A Act, above.

Dear me! Some over fanciful angst going on here I fear.

I do agree that the compensation is an insult. What on earth are people being compensated for? Has anyone lost money over this? So what are they being paid for? Being called a fat ****? How does that merit such an enormous payoff? Hurt feelings? Oh dear me! How awful!
Pathetic how our society seems to think that showering money makes unpleasant no-cost no-damage experiences go away.
Shoulda banged the creep up of course. Lifetime ban? Shame more airlines don't do this, and if they collaborated like pubs do on a "Banned from one, Banned from all" basis we'd soon see a reduction in this kind of behaviour. As long as the bleeding hearts from the "human rights" camp don't all start squalling it isn't fair on the poor dear...

For whatever insurance you choose premiums will be sky high if you have a criminal conviction.
