Seems like they are a little overboard with the arrests. But on the bright side, everybody got a free night in Bermuda.
 
2013-02-03 05:47:38 PM
Oh no, they have to stay in Bermuda while this is investigated.  Those poor, poor miscreants.  They should have put them on a plane to Detroit.
 
2013-02-03 05:48:34 PM
Charge them for all the delay costs to the airline and passengers.

not in Bermuda.  according to the article:  "The report says the family has been ordered to stay Bermuda and their passports and travel documents have been seized by local police."

proof-reading is overrated.

Before this turns into the inevitable anti-smoking vs. anti-anti-smoking flame war, I'll just say this:  I don't give a rat's ass if you want to smoke or not.  It's your body, it's your business.  However, if you're contained in a goddamn airtight sardine tin with a crapload of other people for several hours, PUT IT OUT!  Bars, restaurants, street corners, whatever.  There's actual air circulation in those cases, so they're debates for another time.  These guys were just being assholes.

And in typical awkward style, SunNews segues from "listen to the flight attendants" to "unions bad".

"On March 2, sixty days after the start of the conciliation period, the flight attendants' union will have the right to strike," CUPE says on its site.

And on March 3rd, Harper will declare them to be an essential service and order them back to work.

A Sunwing flight is bad enough without smokers.
They must put 7 extra rows of seats in their planes so your legs barely fit in the space in front of you.

I wonder what will be the total cost of that smoke break for these nicotine addicts

D) Canadians.
 
2013-02-03 06:02:40 PM
Makes you kind of wonder if it was worth it when you picture the smoking the plane did to exact retribution on this family.

I remember picking the smoking section on a flight because that was where the fun was. They'd be drinking and laughing. I'm not sure if I really fit in but I hoped maybe some of it would rub off.

But what ever...

on with your rage.

Bad idea.  The Detroit airport is actually super nice.  Send 'em to Phoenix, THAT is one shiatty airport right there.

seriously, this, you are not the center of the universe, have some respect for others, if you're stressed by flying, don't fly, or have your doc write a prescription for a mild sedative(what I do).

It could be fun if all other airlines put them on a no-fly list for misbehaving on their last flight. That happens fairly regularly to Britons who get drunk and rowdy on holiday flights to Spain. The journey home by land and/or ferry is long and very expensive.

At least this is good news if it was a Boeing jet.  The smoke didn't come from batteries.

Passengers do not get compensated for delays.

The airline, on the other hand, will bill these fools 5 figures.

Oh, I know.  Been there a few times.  Don't let them stay in the air point, obviously.
 
2013-02-03 06:19:34 PM
OK someone in the know explain something to me in regards to all of these diverted airline stories...

Smoker lights up? Divert and land!
Kid throws a tantrum? Divert!
Woman locks herself in the potty? Divert!
Man argues with flight attendant? you better believe that is a divert!
Man gets drunk? Divert!

You get it.

I mean, come on! The idiocy level is approaching the No Tolerance in Schools policy where little Jenny gets expelled for a Tylenol or little Johnny gets suspended for drawing a picture of a gun.

Are they that terrified that a "scene" is some prelude to a terrorist hijacking or what?

Shoulda just thrown the smokers off the plane instead of messing up everyone else's flight.

This is like an episode of the Ottawa-based cartoon, Kevin Spencer. Kevin Spencer is a loveable "chain-smoking, alcoholic, teenage sociopath" according to his theme song and he, his family and friends, make the guys from the Nova Scotia trailer park which is the setting for the popular comedy Trailer Park Boys look like Baptist Sunday School teachers (the non-pedophile kind) at prayer.

I can just imagine the scene as it went down.

Although Canada has followed the path of political correctness and health mania laid down by the US, there are yahoos in the hills of the Maritimes, ,and elsewhere, who won't surrender their cancer sticks until the head nurse tricks them into letting her reach into their oxygen tent to pull their last ciggie out of the device installed in their neck like Whozit from South Park.

Yup, that's a classic. They'll be retelling the story of that flight at Canadian Legion Halls from Cape Breton, NS, to Tatamagouche, QC.

If you want to check out Keven Spencer online, you may need to know Russian or Portuguese. It's a CBC production and I haven't found it on DVD yet, while the online episodes tend to be non-English because somewhere in the world, Canadian white trash have found soul-mates or at least an audience who knows the type well enough to laugh at them as well as with them.

Beavis & Butthead combined and raised to a power scarcely scratches the surface of Kevin Spencer. You'll be sad and laughing hysterically at the same time if you've got first-hand experience of these people. They are tragic-comedy at its lowest common denominator.

Um... I'm no geogramatician but how much longer would it have taken them to just keep flying to to the Dominican? 45 minutes? An hour? If they weren't being violent just keep going and arrest them there.

Oh common sense... how I miss thee.

That was my point, above. The slightest uproar or incident these days and they flip the plane around and fly home dramatically as if a nuclear bomb was on board. WTF? What happened to logic, reason, and common sense?

Tell you what, you load up one planeload of only smokers and smoke all you farking want. Otherwise no one is smoking on a plane that I'm on.

One of the few benefits of the post 9/11 paranoia is that you could savagely beat these clowns and probably get away with it.

Not because smoking is that obnoxious, but because they just lost me a day of vacation.

liam76: Not because smoking is that obnoxious, but because they just lost me a day of vacation.


This is why every person  filing out of the plane should be able to kick the perpetrators squarely in the squishy bits.

You could smoke on airplanes in 1982.  I don't remember the exact year, but it was a number of years AFTER 1982 when they decided you couldn't smoke on flights that were 2 hours or less.   Then a few years after that they just said no smoking ever.

CSB

I boarded a flight once and we got delayed.  It wasn't officially announced, but rumor spread throughout the plane that the reason we couldn't leave was because there was a missing ashtray.  Even though smoking is not allowed, planes still have ashtrays.  The explanation was that just in case someone lights up there needs to be a place for them to put it out.

Yeah, sounds like BS to me too.

Are you happy aunties?

They don't let Newfies into Nova Scotia? Probably a good policy to keep them bottled up like we do with Jersey scum and trash from Bama. But they can't survive without oil refinery fumes and white lightning so it's for their own good really.

2013-02-03 07:46:50 PM
Reminds me of the trans-pacific flight we had when I was younger.  We were sitting in the end of the non-smoking section.  The magical barrier of the galley separated us from the smoking section.  The people just stood and smoked by the open space by the cabin doors.  It didn't seem to bother me at the beginning but it got unbearable a few hours later.
