he is a cabin attendant. & note how he tries his best to keep his hands in plain sight & as far away from her as possible. The commander if the article is read in full states advised crew not to touch her (I am assuming over the internal PA as he did not step out). This instruction of his repeated by another crew is overheard in the video.

(Unusually for the DM can’t see the value of her house mentioned anywhere in the report)

The video is only 4 minutes long. For how long did the crew and passengers actually have to endure that behaviour? If she spat on someone that is assault. It could be argued she compromised the safety of the flight. She ruined the experience of the fellow passengers who presumably paid a lot of money - class action? She is in some trouble I suspect...
Imagine being married to it...

With the recent news coming out of Air India, I'm almost surprised they didn't offer her a job as a pilot.

Having viewed this disgusting episode on youtube, I hope she is jailed and struck off over this, as well as being banned from AI and other airlines.

Had I been on the receiving end of her vile racist tirade, she would have very likely have been punched into next week.

The crew showed remarkable restraint in dealing with her.

I'm inclined to agree. Airlines should share their list of undesirables - nobody has the right to travel on a commercial aircraft. No company is obliged to sell you a ticket.

From the DM link above and other sources it appears that Ms. O'Broin actually is an attorney from Belfast and anti-Israel activist who was returning from holiday in Goa.

If that's true, I would recommend taking a few more days off next time. Holiday didn't work

It is not "banned" at the front, it is limited.

It's also limited at the back, albeit at cabin crew discretion.

I don't ever recall a "whole cabin being sozzled silly". Do you? Or are you just making it up for dramatic effect?

In 30+ years of frequent flying, I can only remember a handful of drink-related "air rage" incidents, almost always from people who probably - on even a cursory inspection - should have been deemed too drunk to have been let on the flight in the first place.

To be honest, they could cut a lot of this stuff out by nipping it in the bud at the gate.

’International criminal lawyer’? Yeah. Right. Because that’s how they behave isn’t it?
I'm always a tad suspicious of those that prefix "International" to their so called titles...

That being the case, I will rephrase it. Limited at the front, unlimited at the back.
Cheap booze means more will be drunk by half wits, free booze means a lot more will be drunk by more who wish to join the half wits.
With all those air miles under your belt, as you cannot ever recal a whole cabin being sozzled, I`d say you have led a sheltered life and missed the privilge of carting hen and stag parties, football fans and connaiseurs of fine lagers.

I passed my Air Law exam in 2009, so things may have changed, but doesn't the law of the country of registration apply over international waters?

Possibly not terribly relevant in this instance.

DRUK's map got me thinking they should have simply made a quick stop and offloaded her in Tehran...

It's legally fuzzy.

An airline is a common carrier. That gives them a large number of immunities and privileges. For example, If I give you a ride to NYC to go rob a bank, I'm potentially a co-conspirator. if United Airlines gives you a ride to NYC to go rob a bank, they aren't. If I give you a ride across the border and you're carrying illegal drugs, the authorities can seize my car. If British Airways gives you a ride across the border and your'e carrying drugs, their aircraft is safe.

The flip side to those immunities and privileges is that, being a common carrier, an airline is fact pretty much obliged to sell a ticket to anyone who wants to buy one, with certain well defined exceptions.(Obviously, having a history of assaulting flight crew or endangering aircraft is one of them)

A little basic numeracy is in order

The industry carries millions of passengers per day, and incidents such as this seem to be in the small single digits. Statistically speaking, it doesn't seem to be a problem worth very much hand-wringing.
