February hasn’t been the happiest of months. However, the “Crazy Travel” bin is stocked full.
Passenger restrained with duct tape and zip ties after storming cockpit, FBI says – My family coined the phrase “Crazy Eyes”…. note the picture above.
It seems Charlene Sarieann Harriott, attacked three crew members aboard an American Airlines flight as it approached Charlotte’s airport. The attendants first ordered her to stop, then gave chase – just as the flight was touching down.
They eventually restrained her with duct tape and zip ties in the first-class section as the plane landed, it says, but Harriott “became more aggressive and physically violent toward the flight crew.”
She bit one attendant on the right forearm, puncturing the skin and causing bleeding. LINK
Anytime duct tape and zip ties are involved, and everyone is clothed, I’m listening.
Shameless woman filmed drying knickers using aeroplane’s air vents for 20 minutes – They use the word “aeroplane”, that’s an indicator that it didn’t happen here.This one made the rounds earlier in the month. Now I’ve done my fair share of laundry on the road, but this takes the cake. Besides, I want to know what the hell happened on that flight that required her to dry her knickers. LINK
Demonic child screams and runs through an 8-hour flight from Germany to Newark – Most of my flights are under 3 hours, even to Newark. However, a screaming child during the entire flight might require evasive action. Just watch the first 60 seconds, you’ll get the idea. LINK

The Dubai to Amsterdam flight made an unscheduled stop in Vienna as the elderly overweight man reportedly refused to contain himself in the packed out cabin.
Chaos erupted on the flight when two Dutchman who were sitting next to the flatulent man told him to stop and complained to Transavia Airlines crew.
Yet despite repeated requests and even a direct order from the pilot the man carried on and a fight broke out.
The pilot of the Dutch low-cost airline then decided to make an emergency landing at Vienna International Airport in Austria.
Officers boarded the plane with police dogs and four suspects were escorted off the plane. LINK

“There was a subject on the aircraft that had barricaded or locked himself in the bathroom, the lavatory,” Perry said. “Flight attendants did find that the subject was naked.” LINK
Woman Crawled Into X-Ray Machine Because She Didn’t Want Her Bag Stolen – You can’t make this stuff up, and to be honest I’ve seen folks nervous when their bags are out of sight…. but seriously.
Imagine being the officer in charge of monitoring the X-ray machine.
“Yep, there’s a bag, a mobile phone, a purse, a briefcase, another mobile phone…a…a human?” I can see them thinking. LINK
Passengers describe mid-air scare when engine cover rips off plane – As much as I fly you would think that I’d have a desire to do it myself…….not no but “Hell No”. My Uncle, Brother-In-Law and Father-In-Law have all flown planes, that’s enough for me.

Father Put Sex Toys in His Son’s Bag and Sent Him Through Airport Security – You just know this made for a fun morning.
