Two removed for WRITING on the aircraft body!

BBC News link here
Basically two women boarded a FlyBe at Southampton and were writing on things with marker pens including the aircraft itself. Captain saw them and removed them from the flight.

Apparently, they were part of a wedding party.

Shame!

Serves them right - things like this can actually be corrosive on aircraft surfaces!

Yes. Cultured people refer to this as vandalism. Show these lowlifes the boundaries and we might progress in society. Good Captain qualities !

Isn't uncommon to see graffiti (mainly stickers) around the door area of aircraft that use steps

I hope they are also presented with a bill for the removal of their graffiti. If normal aviation pricing is used, this will be an eye-wateringly large amount of money. It will also send an even bigger message to other would be miscreants who believe that it is OK to write on other people's property.

Err... they are security seals, to show no one has entered the aircraft when parked up.

Does that include the big round blue one that says "One World"?

Bit of a pity the same treatment isn't handed out to those low-life bus passengers who scratch up windows and scrawl their graffiti all through buses. If it was in my power, they'd be walking everywhere.

It isn't only passengers that commit acts of vandalism. In April this year I travelled from Melbourne to Singapore on Scoot. Arrived for check in a bit early and flight delayed. My bag was in the airlines custody, (or their agents), for about three hours.


When I got to my hotel in Singapore I could not open my bag, a new, lightweight, ultra strong Samsonite with a combination lock that secured two zips. Tried everything, as did the hotel engineer. As luck would have it the Samsonite service office was only about 75 yards from the hotel and I took my case there in the morning, the young lady tried all her tricks, to no avail and said, after examining lock with a flash light, that it looked as though it had been super-glued around the button that should slide sideways and release the zips. The repair facility agreed and changed the lock, FOC. Sure enough, the lock had been deliberately super-glued shut. Reports filed to police at Melbourne and to Scoot, "no further action" I was told by the police! Scoot told me their baggage claim office was in Sydney!


What kind of person is it that goes to work deliberately armed with super-glue so that they can vandalise passengers baggage?

It's a world-wide problem.

Don't even talk to me about London Underground Tubes, mind you Paris out-graffiti's all of them.

Off course we have had our own "intelligent" community of troops who did it to Lightnings on the line.

I don't own this space under my name. I should have leased it while I still could

Try Athens; get shares in spray paint companies.

ImageGear, you are not wrong.

We visited 'The City Of Light' last week, for the first time in 20 years. The amount of 'coloured fat-writing' was astonishing, as were some of the surfaces it appeared on, especially from the accessibility standpoint.

People who graffiti remind me of dogs pissing on power poles, ie I was here!! And I'm not really that advanced.

That or when they started scribbling on the walls at the age of three their chav parents never told them not to.

To be fair, the desire to mark our presence on walls seems to have been around since before we started building walls, never mind flying machines. On the other hand, looking down our noses at others is probably an even older trait...

True that people would mark the walls of cave many many years ago, but as a race we've advanced since that time.

Looking down our nose at people, I would have to yes I do look down my nose at people who get on an aircraft and start to draw or write on it, or any other mode of transport shared by others, if they want to do it on anything they own, good for them

Good on the captain for kicking them off.

Please send them the bill.

According to a reformed graffiti artist who told his story in a local rag the need to deface someone else's property comes out of a need of self expression.

The so called artist went on to say that it is considered bad practice to spray over the top of someone else's "self expression".

So the solution it seems is to just simply write over the top of their "self expression" work the following: "Is a d!ckhead".
