I’m having one of those there oughta be a law moments after reading about this idiot.
Seriously, everyone involved in this trip, from passengers to flight crew to ground workers all the way down to the people who laid the foundation for the factory where the plane was built should get to punch him. He should then have to pay the cost of rebooking everyone’s flights and make them whole for their screwed up plans. Charging him with mischief feels like we’re letting him off easy. I like making a funny as much as anybody, but sometimes it’s good to remember that there’s a time and a place for it. Don’t be a fucking imbecile, ya fucking imbecile.
Just two hours into a WestJet flight from Toronto to Montego Bay, Jamaica, passengers had their trips unexpectedly cut short on Monday after a passenger claimed he had the coronavirus.
At some point during Flight WS 2702 the man stood up, announced that he was recently in China and had contracted the disease, according to Peel Regional Police.
“That announcement was shared by the flight crew to the captain and a decision was made for the plane to return back to Pearson [International Airport],” said Const. Bancroft Wright.
Passenger Julie-Anne Broderick says she and her family were concerned.
“We were just over Florida and all of a sudden we felt the plane do a pretty dramatic turn,” Broderick told CBC News.
“We were flying in the opposite direction all of a sudden and it said our final destination was back in Toronto. So we were very confused and worried.”
She says she saw the man taking a selfie and telling passengers around him that he had the coronavirus.
“The flight attendants came, gave him a mask and gloves and just told him that he had to move to the back of the plane” she said.
Perhaps part of the reason I’m losing my mind so much right now is the phrase “just two hours into a WestJet flight.” I don’t travel well. For me, two hours is a freaking eternity. Ask Carin. If somebody did this during a trip I was on, chances are solid that it would be the easiest day a homicide detective ever had.
