£600 fine for air rage passenger


Passengers on a flight to Glasgow Airport were shocked and frightened when the calm of the business-class section was shattered by a drunk singing pro-IRA songs. Paisley Sheriff Court heard how the incident caused a drama as the aircraft approached the airport on February 15.

Cabin crew on the KLM flight from Amsterdam told the court that they had already regretted serving a whisky and two beers to tipsy John McFadden when he declined their offer of a meal after take-off. Refused more alcohol, he began to hurl abuse and called a stewardess a ‘f*****g bitch’. When she complained and he said ‘f**k you’. A fellow passenger intervened and Mr McFadden threatening him with ‘a doing’.

The consultant electronic engineer, 41 and of Paisley, pleaded guilty to conducting himself in a disorderly manner, placing cabin crew and passengers in a state of fear and alarm, shouting and swearing, uttering political remarks, and committing a breach of the peace.

Sheriff George Kavanagh said that as the accused had spent three days in custody on arrival, the fine would be limited to £600.
