On June 7, 2016, a drunk passenger guzzled down an entire bottle of vodka on a flight bound to Corfu, Greece, according to “Manchester Evening News.” The passenger was arrested on arrival for abusing the crew and passengers. Additionally, the passenger even threatened the lives of his own family. One witness stated that the drunk passenger consumed a large bottle of vodka, which he carried on the plane. He was not drinking the small bottles typically provided on an aircraft. Other passengers claimed the inebriated passenger arrived to the airport smashed and was a problem from the very beginning.
The pilot reported that the flight was a nightmare, and he felt bad for the passengers that were forced to wait to get on that plane on their return to Manchester after vacationing. They must have been so frustrated because their flight was delayed an additional two hours, said the pilot.
The flight crew gave their reports to the local law enforcement in Greece. There was no explanation as to why the man decided to ruin his vacation before arriving to his destination.
