A judge didn’t mince words when sentencing an airline passenger who allegedly caused a massive disturbance while purportedly drunk.

And there’s some (more) bad news for some of us business travelers.

Those are some of the travel headlines I thought you, too, may find interesting today.

Judge Sentences “Nightmare” Passenger

An English judge sentenced a woman who reportedly grew irate after she was refused alcohol during a flight. The passenger apparently scratched another woman, scared the heck out of a child, and caused a general ruckus. According to Fox News, the woman and her friends downed a bottle of duty-free vodka. But were still thirsty after that.

Before being sentenced to community service, the judge admonished, “‘You were every passenger’s worst nightmare on that day … [and] you should be ashamed.”

The Death of the Single Meeting Business Trip?

One of my clients scaled back travel for single-day events — and that was pre-COVID-19. I guess I shouldn’t plan on those quick trips returning.

Speaking of things that are dead (at least for now) —

Dark Harbor Haunt Canceled

The iconic (and haunted) Queen Mary ship in Long Beach, California, scratched its annual “Dark Harbor Haunt” event scheduled for this Halloween season.

hate “house of horrors” attractions (and Halloween in general, actually). But a genuinely haunted ship (I’ve experienced it!) combined with people jumping out and intentionally scaring others especially doesn’t sound like a good time. (I’m sure my daughter will drag me to it in a few years.)

Remember that the idea was originally floated (heh heh) for the Queen May to become a hospital ship.

Senator Wants to Outlaw Middle Seats

A US Senator from Oregon wants to outlaw middle seats on airlines during pandemics. (You know American and United are going to pitch a fit over this one.)

Want to Visit the Beach? Wait in Line. Literally.

A beach in Spain is using a traffic light system to regulate beach attendance.
