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.
I 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.
