How about a pre-flight stiffened of a pint and whiskey chaser? This at 7am. Granted body clocks may be in a different time zone but really!

Did 50 plus flights last year and came across little of this....................... came across some children crying but more to do with the air pressure affecting ears.

Last year Ryanair and Easyjet carried 200 Million people...................... in reality likely less than 50 people were offloaded.

Some 20 odd years ago on a Monarch Man-AGP flight on a friday nite where a 20 lads stag party on board.
They "forced" a young lady to move seats...................... asking politely and telling her their behaviour may be boorish and not wanting to destroy her flight.
She was as it turns out a BA trainer..................... ended up sitting next to me for flight but never got her number
They clearly had lots of drink taken but 1-2 were in control looking after the rest and ensuring rest of pax were not too badly harassed.
Thanked the guy clearly in charge when picking up bags.............. he appreciated that and just said he seen both sides of it, didn't bother the lads
as they will drink enough when there but did make the flight tolerable for everybody.

As for flying him when sober, why ruin his holiday but he knows the penalty next time.

Now is someone attacks a member of CC then a ban but mere drunkeness then a cooling off and a warning may be just as effective.

Closing the bars at the airports will not stop those who think 'having a few drinks' before the flight is a must so they can 'have a larf'. All that will happen is that they will buy duty free alcohol and open it either prior to boarding or on the aeroplane.

I started life out as a passenger services agent many moons ago. In our training we were told that we should not allow any passenger who was likely to cause a disturbance to board the aeroplane, referring to a senior staff member if we thought it was likely to escalate, or if 3rd party handling, the station staff of the airline concerned. It was understood that they would deal with the matter by off loading the passenger themselves or calling the Police to the gate if required.

It is far better to deny boarding from the gate than to pass the problem on to the cabin crew and Captain.

I don't see why the millions of passengers who fly and drink without causing any problems should be punished for the actions of a few.

Did anyone get the names of the flight crew? Was it Captain Hook in the LH seat? And was he wearing Crocs?

On BA flight few months back from my other neck of the woods , SZB to LGW...late at night, think it was 2200 hours.

Tall young blonde German lad with snake hips is late and last pax to come on board. He's forever apologising profusely with a hint of a slur, drops his coat and bag, his razor drops out etc etc. BA stewradess calmly helps to pick his stuff up as as hecontinues to drop stuff making his way down to cattle class. I see worried looks on the crew face and discussions with captain as well as the Swissport agent. Girl calmly walks to said gent and asks politely if he's fit and feels ready to fly, he assures her by apologising profusely. She gives benefit of the doubt, doors close then wheels up.....thankfully said pax dozes off for the duration of the flight.

cheers

Using airport IATA/ICAO codes saves so much time.
