After a woman was this week jailed for trying to force open the emergency exit onboard a Jet2.com flight, the issue of pre-flight airport drinking has once again been called into question.
Chelmsford Crown Court heard on Wednesday (12 February) that Chloe Haines, 26, of Loudwater, Bucks, had been drinking before she became verbally abusive towards passengers and crew and tried to open the door.
Haines denied a charge of being drunk on an aircraft, but was jailed for two years for assaulting a member of Jet2.com cabin crew and recklessly or negligently acting in a manner likely to endanger an aircraft.
She has also been banned from flying with Jet2.com for life.
But what do you think? Is it time to curb pre-flight airport drinking? Let us know your thoughts in the poll below.
