Tinkerbell Banned from Flying

https://www.thetimes.co.uk/article/f...ight-m7dfnlhm8

Fancy-dress fairy banned from Ryanair flight

Airline bosses have renewed calls for a two-drink limit at airports after drunken passengers in fancy dress had to be removed from a flight by armed police. The men, dressed as Tinkerbell and Bob the Builder, were due to fly from Stansted airport to Krakow in Poland yesterday.

Ryanair confirmed that an “unruly Tinkerbell” had been removed from the aircraft by police and repeated its calls for limits on drinking at airports, adding that it would not tolerate unruly or disruptive behaviour.

Dan May, another passenger on the flight, tweeted: “Our flight to Krakow hasn’t taken off yet because a man dressed as Tinkerbell has threatened to cut everyone up. This is why you don’t fly Ryanair from Stansted. Armed police have shown up.”

A Ryanair spokesman said: “We will not tolerate unruly or disruptive behaviour at any time and the safety and comfort of our customers, crew and aircraft is our number one priority. This is now a matter for local police”..........

Essex police said: “Two men had become disruptive on a plane. They were co-operative on being asked to leave the aircraft. They scheduled a later flight to their destination.”.......

My first flight was out of Manchester in a Stratocruiser.
I wore a shirt and tie.
I was six.

He was banned from flying on the flight in question, but allowed to fly once he'd sobered up, presumably.

Couldn't Tinkerbell fly to Krakow by him/her/itself? Or had it run out of pixie dust?

Bob the Builder would have been handy if the plane needed fixing.

P&O banned fancy dress, novelty clothing and personalised slogans from last February.

Could add a whole new meaning to thrown off.

Does this mean no more ball gowns and formal penguin bow tie dinner suits ( cummerbunds optional ) and Panama hats for those strolls on the upper lounge sun deck..... for those not traveling steerage that is ?

Thankfully, ones last cruise...... from Pierhead to Pierhead ..lasts about 50mins..had no such dress code restrictions and neither did the 1 hr jaunt up the Exe ...

How come we managed nearly 24 hours (including stops) from Lyneham to Changi on a Transport Command Brittania with nothing but NAAFI coffee or watery orange squash to quench our thirst? Personally I'd ban all on-board alcohol and close all the bars in departure lounges, but no doubt the fares would rise by 50% to make up for the lack of profits. Still, as I've given up flying since it ceased to be fun and became a chore, why would I care?

Isn't it a shame that low cost air travel has allowed all sorts of British scum to be delivered to various slices of paradise around the world. Despite needing my job to keep the cash coming in, I regularly feel guilty for depositing a fresh load of pished-up peasants at whichever destination I've turned up at that day.

Ban drinking at airports and on flights. It's time to make a change.

“..how come we managed 24hrs..”? Because it’s nothing to do with the endurance of the passengers, rather the airport’s desperation to screw every last penny out of them. Having raped them for parking, drop-off, duty-“free” amounting probably to more than the air fare, the airport bar represents their final chance to extract their ££’s

It's time that all airlines agreed, cause trouble on or before a flight, your name is circulated and no carrier will accept you for a trip.
Maybe initially for a fixed time, say one year, then any further incidents, it's a lifetime ban.
I refuse to travel on Ryanair or Easyjet, but I don't think that pi**heads/ troublemakers are exclusive to those two.

Out of Larnaca we had two dope heads. The gate staff kept them in the counter area as they were causing trouble but they were cleared to board. One the other passengers ran to the aircraft and alerted the FA. She denied them boarding. Then the Captain appeared and confirmed it. The police came and tried to get them on board as they didn't want the responsibility. The captain won. We were an hour or more late as of course they had to offload the baggage too.

Full marks as it was not long to find the baggage.

I am sure there are some stats on the actual number of these incidents compared to how many people fly without any trouble.
When I fly I don't drink before or during my flight. For no other reason in that I drive both ends of my journey. But I do understand that some people like a drink. It is part of their holiday which, generally, they have worked hard for.
Instead of penalizing all those who are no bother to anyone, just ban the trouble makers. Not just from your flight, but from all airlines for a period. I don't enjoy flying anymore due to these people. Gate staff and cabin crew should, IMHO, stop any unsociable behaviour on board. Once passengers can see that bans will put a stop to their holidays, I am sure things will improve.

What, no trousers?

If I can't drive there I do not bother, I gave up other means of transport after being surrounded by childish morons intent on having a "good time" to the detriment of others and parents that cannot carry out the basics of parenthood and control their children.
