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.

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).

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.

Satanic_Hamster: 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.


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.

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

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.
