I have it on good authority from cabin crew on a major Gulf carrier that by far the worst flights for drunkenness are those originating or terminating in Manchester and Glasgow.

Make of that what you will.

And another example of a disruptive behaviour (FR 2906, BRU to MLA, 4th November): Shocking moment huge fight erupts between travellers on Ryanair plane after elderly woman hit on the head

What I struggle to understand is that there are now two return flights a day with that sandpit carrier to GOW. They appear pretty full. The load quality appears equivalent to the LoCo. Where is all the money coming from to facilitate all of this?

A note from the country where the word "vodka" comes from.

Obviously, the issue with alcohol-induced behavior onboard the aircraft was well-known here (note the past tense). Nowadays, most, if not all, local airlines impose a blanket ban on consuming any alcohol on board, including those Duty Free items. The only exemption is the alcohol offered and purchased in flight; however, none is offered in Economy class. Then, a few high-profile cases ending with a lengthy jail terms helped to soothe the things down a bit, too.

Did the air travel grind to a halt? No, not at all. Was the problem solved? Not entirely, but it has become manageable.

No compassion to those who can't survive a hour-long flight without a shot, really.
