      Cheers for that reminder! Haven’t watched Holy Grail in donkeys. Gotta top up me Python levels to cope with this recession doom & gloom, all hail the silliness :)

    Disgusting response.
    Airlines seem to have zero customer service these days. But they’d be giving out if we passed the picket no doubt.

    tbh, that guy sounds like a complete bell end – this all kicked off because he didn’t want 8.90 in change? tool

      He said “I don’t want 8.90 in change” and they got the guards to kick him off the plane? Seems a bit far-fetched..

    Very one sided point of view taken on broadsheet. Reading the comments on the guy’s blog, another passenger on the flight said he was acting the boll*ox as well.
    We haven’t heard any other side of this story.

      Assuming that is actually another passenger on the flight, there are also reports that other passengers on the flight also corroborated yer man’s side of the story.

      We won’t hear the other side because Aer Arann have closed off that avenue, and the air hostess has (conveniently) withdrawn her previous complaint to the Gardai.

      It’s a pity really, because as you say we are only getting one side.

        Very true, it could be fabrication on the guy’s blog comments.
        There are bigger problems in the world than one possibly or not possibly true or untrue statement that he was the victim in this situation if that is what it really is, or not.

      The other passenger (by his own admission, sitting in the seat behind the guy) said the guy was staring at the flight attendant. That was the crime that led to him being met on the tarmac by 4-5 police and airport security vehicles. The flight attendant later withdrew her complaint.
