JetBlue flight B6 1926 from London Gatwick Airport (LGW) to New York John F Kennedy International Airport (JFK) was quite lively on January 30th when a seemingly intoxicated passenger needed to be restrained by four off-duty prison guards and two flight attendants. Surprisingly, the man was not arrested even though police met the aircraft on arrival in New York.

The Daily Mail reports that a passenger started acting aggressively toward his girlfriend and his erratic behavior became a full-blown scene when fellow passengers had to step in to restrain him. The group can be seen in the video above trying to restrain the man as he struggles and they spill all over the aisle of the Airbus A321neo. The man’s girlfriend can be heard shouting and seen trying to separate one of the men’s hands from his face.

Even with the scene that the man caused, the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey made no arrests upon arrival at New York John F Kennedy International Airport (JFK). Hopefully, JetBlue at least bans him from future travel.

Anthony’s Take: Another day, another passenger that appears to drink too much and then get rowdy onboard. People really need to work on their behavior in public as these antics should result in being added to no-fly lists.
