In-flight bacon roll row passenger fined

From the BBC - at least it's different from the usual drunken louts but he should be ashamed of himself.

He certainly should be ashamed of himself.

And his daughter and grand-daughter should be ashamed of him too.

If my Dad had behaved like that (he wouldn't have, he was too nice and polite a chap), I'd have put him in his place way before he got to this stage:

<<At one point, his face was just 5cm (2in) from the face of a female crew member, which left her in tears, the court heard.>>

Appalling behaviour.

I read the report too.

Whinging old fool complained about not having breakfast.

Damn, some people need to grow up; eventually.

What a charming man.

At least he has been named and shamed.

He should know better and fancy playing up like that in front of his daughter and grand daughter. Bet the little girl is proud of grandad!

I hope TUI have blacklisted him from future flights and holidays.

Great example of how not to behave for the grand daughter. The fine seems pretty light to me. I dare say TUI won’t be welcoming him back onboard!

Perhaps he should be tested for Alzheimer's or similar.

I don't think it is unnecessary at all. There have been well documented cases of frequent flyers starting to act strangely on flights and causing all kinds of commotions. In the end, sadly, it was due to early stages of Alzheimer's and degenerative brain issues.

Acting out of character can be one of the warning signs..

Dang, I could have helped him out, had I only known.

Last year, we got “Sausage Rolls” in Qantas between MEL and ADL. I could have saved mine, for his grand daughter. My guess is that the half-life of those things is at least a year.

Ah, “but for a Bacon Roll, all was lost.”

Stay hungry my friends... “

MapleG,

Good point.

A fairly common symptom of several neurological issues is acting “completely out of character.”

Ronald James, 68, shouted at staff and "poked them with his finger".

"An assault is the act of inflicting physical harm or unwanted physical contact upon a person or, in some specific legal definitions, a threat or attempt to commit such an action. It is both a crime and a tort and, therefore, may result in either criminal and/or civil liability"

Seems to me the fine was very lenient
