I didn't mention "intent".

 

Just stating fact re aircraft cabin doors.

All I was getting at; was the passenger had the Intent...

and that if he wouldn't be able to open them, isn't a mitigating factor

 

 

(sort of like: someone pointing a gun, but it misfires...

   - he still intended for the gun to fire)

Flights in planes dehydrate the body very much,
combining it with dehydrating alcohol is a very bad idea,
even caffeine is not recommended for long flights.

I always have a few drinks on the plane,(Florida to BKK 24 hours) Would not even dream about making the trip without it, (sleeping medicine in a tasty liquid form:smile:

I am not a big, hard liquor drinker and it knocks me out,  . after a while I fall asleep, when I wake up we are more than halfway there,  Eat something, watch a couple of bad movies and  ready for our connecting flight in Japan , Korea, or Hong Kong,  (4-5 hrs flight and layover) to get back in shape and get ready for Thailand . :smile:

Ah, for the days of the Cold War, when ordinary Ruskies couldn't travel outside the USSR.

Obviously well known problem with the flight designated alcohol free yet the drunks still access their drug. I guess the next step is drug test for alcohol every passenger prior to boarding and thoroughly search belongings and people. Nothing worse than a drunk on a plane except an airline that doesn't do it's job and endangers other passengers because of it.

Ah, I was waiting for some binary ill-informed opinion and you didn’t disappoint.

 

According to best estimates, there were just over 100,000 flights on planet Earth yesterday.

 

Obviously, as a result of a couple of drunk Russians, we really should clamp down on all this drinking nonsense.

 

Please clarify how, whilst undeniably aggravating, a drunk genuinely “endangers other passengers”. If it is a major & recurring issue that requires new legislations, there must be a multitude of specific examples....

Some time ago I was on a flight with 3 Russians in the next row. They bought a big bottle of whisky just for the flight. And they finished it within an hour...

I think maybe that the passengers should receive world wide airline bans and stamps put in passports to state this too. That way you'd maybe cause trouble going home, but flying to a country and knowing you could possibly not fly home and have to travel 6000 miles on the road , you may think twice

Trying to open the door- don't panic, air pressure holds the door closed, and can't be opened while the plane is at high altitude.

These people need their passports cancelled..forever. 

They should pay all passengers damages of at least equivalent of their fares plus fines the total cost of flight.

No ifs buts or maybes.

People seem willing to pardon such people because they are or were drunk. Would they be excused 9f they were high on ice or cocaine?
