    That's actually a lot less than I have seen. But then he has to stay in YYR until he pays. Funny how the judge left it up to CO to sue for the landing. Quite often airlines get reimbursed because the judge orders it. $13,000 for a diversion.... kind of cheap.

    hah, teaches him a good lesson... I doubt CO will sue to cover their losses though

    Well deserved at that. I hope CO sues him for their losses.

    I dont understand why it is so hard for people to behave during a flight. No one likes being stuck in a plane for that long (except maybe the Pilots). Just calm down. They were almost there, too. Good job by CO and the RCMP in handling the situation. Hope this guy learns a lesson.

    If a flight diverts to a Canadian airport the person(s) will be removed by the police and the flight continues after a statement has been made by flt ops or inflight. It may be a quick stop or could last a few hours depending on how long the statements take. I've yet to see a diversion for airage or assholeitis where the person(s) have not been prosecuted.

    After charges are laid the person may be released with a court date to appear, however usually they get them done in a day or two. Generally, not always, if no one has been injured there will be a stiff fine levied plus reimburse the airline for the diversion. If someone has been injured expect some jail time.

    If I have to divert a flight for a non-weather or non-medical reason you can expect to see the police when they open the door.

    Two questions: Why is it that drinking always seems to be a factor in these matters? How long before the authorities or the airlines no longer serve alchololic beverages on flights? Why land and remove the passanger? Throw a couple of these losers out the door while in flight and the problem would be solved

    YYR and YQX Diversions

    I was in Goose Bay in May 2006 when a Swedish model appeared in Court after causing a British Airways Flight to land there after she refused to follow crew directions....

    The Flight landed, the Mounties boarded and removed the passenger in question. The plane stayed around long enough for the Mounties to get statements from the passengers and crew then it left again. The TV footage for this weeks YYR incident seemed to indicate the same pattern.

    I saw a number of incidents, while I was in Gander, of people being removed from flight for either air rage or narcotics issues. Again the planes stuck around only long enough for the police to get the passenger and the required statements ( and topping off the tanks if need be, unexpected stops may require fuel dumping).

    I believe the swedish model found a way out of YYR by (very long drive otherwise...) air.

    cheers

    VERY COOL SINGATURE!!!


    Back on topic - in a case like that what is the Canadian policy? I mean, do they take him off of the flight there and then continue flying? Or will they investigate further, and halt the flight? For the very least, he will not be flying again anytime soon.

    "A 47 year old American man is being held in custody in Happy Valley-Goose Bay after he allegedly became irate on board an international flight.
