Another idiot causes another inflight fight, ends up duct-taped to seat as passengers laugh

https://heavy.com/news/maxwell-berry-frontier/

Berry, 22, is facing multiple misdemeanor charges, the Miami-Dade Police Department said. According to police, Berry was accused of groping two female flight attendants and punching a male flight attendant in the face, according to police. He was seen on the now-viral video screaming during the incident that his parents are worth “two million goddamn dollars.”



Moron. ...Oh, wait, it gets better/worse:

Berry was also involved in Greek life at the college and was given an award for being a “perfect role model,” and for leading the “fight to dismantle fraternity stereotypes,” a Zoom video posted by Ohio Wesleyan shows.

Ohio Wesleyan told The New York Times in a statement, “Ohio Wesleyan is saddened to learn of this situation with one of our graduates. The case does not involve the university, and the incidents depicted do not reflect Ohio Wesleyan’s values.”


There was some uproar over Frontier's response, but as many have pointed out this is just procedure, not punishment (so far). The attendants are still being paid, they're just "off duty" to be available for the investigation into the incident. The attendants' union is of course watching closely.

Frontier Airlines received backlash after saying in its initial statement that the crew members who restrained Berry had been suspended pending an investigation. The statement said, “The flight attendants will be, as required in such circumstances, relieved of flying pending completion of an investigation.” The airline also initially said “proper policies for restraining a passenger were not followed.”


And it didn't take long for Brent Terhune to jump on it!



Welcome to your future, Daddy's little frat boy.

2. Did I miss a post? I did a site search both for "flight" and for "Maxwell."

Came up with nothing.

EDIT: Ah, here it is: https://upload.democraticunderground.com/100215697079

Well, until DU fixes the search function, that's gonna happen. It's not like I copypasted the whole thing.

3. Two million nowadays in not that much. Hell, Bezos just gave...

100M, chump change to him, to Van Jones.

And the young hooligan should probably realize that his parents have the 2M, not him.

6. I'd be terrified if that happened during a flight.

The last thing I would do is laugh.

7. It sounds like flight staff needs to add a new skill to their repertoire

Administration of duct tape to nut case passengers.

I fear the next step is to add half an hour to the boarding process to give an alcohol breath test to each passenger so they can deny boarding to potential disruptors.

9. TSA currently offers self-defense classes to flight crews and gate agents!

https://iam141.org/passenger-rage-is-so-bad-the-tsa-is-offering-free-self-defense-classes/

“Through this training program, TSA’s Federal Air Marshals are able to impart their specialized expertise in defending against and de-escalating an attack while in an aircraft environment,” said Darby LaJoye, Senior Official Performing the Duties of the TSA Administrator. “While it is our hope that flight crew members never have need for these tactics, it is critical to everyone’s safety that they be well-prepared to handle situations as they arise.”

The classes are led by certified instructors who train flight crews to deal with violent encounters in an aircraft setting.

In addition to simple martial arts maneuvers, flight crew members also learn to identify and deter potential threats before they happen. The four-hour classes are available at 24 locations around the country and are free of charge. Active airline workers are eligible for the training, including gate, ramp, ticket counter agents, flight attendants, and pilots.

11. Actually, though, they used packing tape, not duct tape.
