Open Post: Hosted By Icelandair’s Restraint Technique

January 4, 2013 / Posted by:

Icelandair knows how to do it. When one of their passengers drank up all of his duty free booze, tried to choke out a woman and screamed that the plane was going to crash, his fellow passengers and the flight attendants did what the LAPD should do to Lindsay Lohan every time she acts the fool: they tied and taped him to his seat. If this isn’t the ultimate “have a fucking seat,” I don’t know what is.

Andy Ellwood was on the flight from Iceland to JFK and posted this picture on his Tumblr of the dude after the passengers shut him up. CBS News says that the crazy drunk also spit at people and threatened the crew. The passengers and crew had enough of his foolery, so tied him up two hours before the plane landed at JFK. A flight attendant stayed with him to make sure he didn’t choke on his own drunk barfs. After they landed, the police shuffled him away.

Now this is how you do a citizen’s arrest. The drunk ass deserves this, because everybody knows that you’re supposed to get seriously boozed up at the airport bar, so you can pass out on the plane until the flight is over. And this is how all messy passengers should be dealt with and I hope it becomes an airline-wide policy. Can’t they do this to brats who incessantly kick the back of seats and to the parents who let them?
