JETSTAR: Drunk on a plane

JETSTAR: Drunk on a plane

It turns out that if you are drunk on a plane – so drunk that you have no recollection of even boarding the flight, vape on the plane, tell staff to ‘fuck off’, and grab a passenger around the chest, then expect to pay AU$4,000 for the privilege, but have no conviction recorded against you.

The passenger accused of this on a flight between Coolangatta and Hobart in May, pled guilty to charges of ‘offensive and disorderly conduct’ on a Jetstar flight.

The magistrate commented:

“It was extremely arrogant, outrageous behaviour for anybody to vape on an aircraft.”

The Queensland passenger has apparently sought help for mental health issues, and has sworn off alcohol.

The aviation industry has a difficult road ahead when it comes to sustainability. It’s going to require a relative revolution in technology, with ‘electric planes’ or hydrogen planes, or some form of jet engine that doesn’t require a carbon based fuel. And that is going to require the development of an alternative to jet engines probably.

It’s a big ask. It will take time to develop.

This move to home grown and manufactured SAF is a first step – maybe even a baby step in a very long road of innovation. In the long run, US$200 million won’t even touch the sides.

Given, no conviction was recorded, I have chosen not to name the passenger in question.

I could say, that is the kind of behaviour you would expect on a Jetstar flight, but that would just be vulgar.
