A Flight, A Bachelor Party & A Blow-Up Doll: What Could Go Wrong?
Bruce Parkinson, Open Jaw
Seriously, are airline pax trying to outdo each other? Is there a contest going on with the most boorish behaviour taking home the prize?
Why do we ask this, you ask? Because, this: Jet2 has banned a passenger because of bizarre antics with an inflatable companion on a flight with families aboard.
In the recent incident, a Jet2 plane flying to Ibiza from Belfast was forced to divert and land in France over a passenger’s “disruptive” and “aggressive” drunken behaviour with a blow-up sex doll he brought aboard with him. Not surprisingly, this charming man was part of a bachelor party on its way to the international party destination.
French police met him at Toulouse airport, The Sun reported. Jet2 described the man’s behaviour as “disgraceful and deplorable.” He had apparently been drinking his duty-free alcohol or had smuggled some aboard.
A passenger aboard the plane tweeted that the man had an inflatable companion with him.
“Nice one guys! Together with a blow-up doll at 7 am in front of my kids & long queues. Way to go!”
