TOURISTS on a crowded holiday jet tackled and hogtied a drunk and abusive passenger to neutralise him on a Bangkok flight.

 

They acted after the crew were unable too subdue the man - and the pilot made clear he was ready to make an emergency landing to hand the “hooligan” over to police in China or Mongolia.

 

Passengers managed to neutralise the 'hooligan' by tackling and hogtying him. 

 

The violent air rage passenger “swore and attacked” fellow tourists seated near him on the A320 flight from Bangkok.

 

The man is aged 26 and reportedly was recently released from prison in Thailand.

The full article says it was a dry flight to Russia. No wonder the guy went mental. Few Russians could stand being away from a fresh bottle for that long, even if he did bring his own with him as reported.

All Aeroflot flights from Thailand are dry.

The report said he took a bottle of whiskey with him on board and was drinking from that

Most western airlines require Police escorts for people who are being deported straight after being released from prison. Surprising they didn't have an escort for the guy.

And seemingly all "S7" flights to Novosibirsk too :biggrin:

The shocking air rage incident was on a packed alcohol-free flight from Bangkok to Russia’s third largest city Novosibirsk, operated by S7, part of the same One World alliance as British Airways and American Airlines.

And now you have an idea what made him angry.

They'd better feed him with a bottle of Wodka.

And being forced(?) from Thailand to Novosibirsk in January in shorts, T-shirt and no socks is also no fun event :cheesy:

Let's hope prisons in Novosibirsk are well heated.

Now you tell me. Didn't know that. Just booked an Aeroflot flight from BKK to Moscow in March. I think I'll be all right.

You will be if you can stand not drinking alcohol for some hours.
