A Thai woman was thrown off a Thai Smile plane after cabin crew heard her say the word “bomb”.

 

The flight, number WE137, was moments from taking off at Chiang Rai airport on Friday evening when the woman was overheard saying “bomb” by one of the flight attendants who reported it to the captain who in turn contacted the police.

 

 

 

A video of the incident was shared on the Kapook Facebook page.

 

The incident meant the flight, which was destined for Suvarnabhumi, took off 35 minutes later than scheduled.

 

Kapook reported the woman was travelling with her foreign husband.

 

Kapook also said that the woman and her foreign husband had earlier become annoyed when cabin crew asked to see their boarding passes.

 

There was no information on if the woman was charged over the incident.

Why would anyone get annoyed by that?

So is the word ''foreign'' being used before husband to imply that somehow this foreigner has caused her to act in such a manner. 

 

Pesky foreigners.

No. What it implies is that some country pumpkin snagged a foreigner and then think her social status climbed up quite a few rungs...

What the story doesn't tell us and that the video doesn't show, is the context of how the word was used.

There is a big difference to the word being overheard in conversation, as in "When I fly I am always scared of a bomb.", and jumping to your feet and screaming "BOMB!"

Did you notice they took 4 bags out of overhead.  Gee, aren't you supposed to be limited to only  "one carry on" per passenger?

Or perhaps her husband asked her how the birthday party she attended the previous evening turned out, to which she replied, "Oh, it was the bomb!"

I think it would be pretty naive by now not to realise that at least it's implied that certain words such as this should not be spoken in any context on board an aircraft.

There have been similar incidents in the U.S. in the past.

The most notable one was some years ago during a spate of hijacking of U.S. plane flights to Cuba.

A famous celebrity in U.S. sports, whose name I won't reveal,  asked a flight attendant if she had any good cigars for sale.

Her answer was No.

Then the passenger jokingly said, "Well that's O.K. , maybe I will just pick some good cigars in Havana  while we are there'.

As a plane had been hijacked to Cuba less than a week earlier, the security on the  plane was not amused by hat comment, and the flight was delayed until all the passengers were searched and cleared.

That is a true story.

Easy. When you fly, don't talk about bombs, ISIS and all that shit. Easy as that. And if you have a tourrete syndrome, please get a medical certification and let the cabin crew know it.
