Drunken Duo Causes XL Airways Flight to Make Emergency Landing
There have been so many stories of people going berserk on airplanes lately that it's starting to sound like a Mad Lib. Just fill in the blanks for the name of the airline, holiday destination, and brand of booze, and you've got the latest episode of Insanity in the Skies.
This weekend's tale will sound familiar: Two twenty-something British lasses took a few too many nips off their duty-free vodka bottle on an XL Airways flight home from the Greek island of Kos. The belligerent duo smoked cigarettes in the lavatory, attempted to open an emergency exit, and attacked flight crew members with the bottle before being subdued by passengers and crew. The flight made an unscheduled landing in Frankfurt, where the women were arrested.
The scene is as scary and sad as it is predictable. Couldn't high-flying drunkards at least find a new way to cause chaos in the sky? Because the smoking-in-the-lavatory and trying-to-open-the-emergency-exit theme is getting awfully tired. How about it, knuckleheads? If we've got to read stories about your shenanigans every week, at least try to make them interesting.
