easyjetFOLLOWING an incident last Thursday April 28 when two Brits were booted off a flight to Spain for drunken behaviour, British holidaymakers have make their thoughts public.

A total of 79% surveyed revealed they would support new measures to limit drinking on planes.

More than one in ten wanted a ‘total ban on booze’ on aeroplanes to prevent disruption for holidaymakers and travellers.

escortAnd 26% of men versus just 16% of women called for a total ban.

The survey, by Opodo travel agent, revealed that 40% of the 1,375 Brits questioned would like to see a two-drink limit for airborne travellers.

Just last week there were several incidents involving intoxicated passengers after two ‘abusive and disruptive’ women were escorted off a Belfast-Barcelona fight and a man allegedly locked himself in an EasyJet toilet causing the Bristol–Malaga flight to return home.

Interestingly, a far higher proportion of Spaniards and Italians favour a total ban on alcohol in the air, standing at 31% and 35% respectively.

While Germans sided with the UK at just 11% and 35% there should be no restrictions.

  1. The airlines don’t say anything when they sell you the booze, they just want to make money from you, most of them are drunk when they get on the plane anyway so banning it would be the best way to go.
