Never say THESE words on an airplane, you could be fined, jailed, or blacklisted by the airline.
Tens of thousands of people travel by plane to reach their desired destination every day. Traveling by plane not only saves time, but is also a feasible option for many. However, did you know that if you say certain words to a flight attendant or indulge in certain activities, you can be blacklisted by the airline?
According to flight safety rules, certain activities and speeches are considered quite serious during the flight. Even as a joke, if you say a few words to the flight attendants, you can be in trouble.
This can lead to a fine of lakhs of rupees as well as a prison sentence of up to 3 years. You can also be blacklisted by airlines.
Drunk people cannot board a plane
According to a Daily Star report, one can have a drink (alcohol) on the flight after asking the flight attendant and availability, however, one cannot board a flight after drinking before boarding. . Airlines take this rule seriously and if you tell a flight attendant “I’m drunk” even jokingly, you can be in trouble. The reason behind this rule is that drunk passengers can become a threat to the safety of other passengers.
Cabin crew and flight attendants have the right to prevent drunk passengers from boarding the aircraft. If, after taking off from the plane, they learn that a passenger is unconscious, then they can land the passenger at the nearest airport and drop them off the plane.
On top of that, if a drunk passenger tries to argue or cause a ruckus with the flight attendant or cabin crew, they can also file a complaint against them. If found guilty, a fine of 8,000 pounds and a jail term of up to 3 years can be imposed. At the same time, that passenger can be blacklisted by the airline and put on the unruly passenger list.
