Wild passenger: A woman from Victoria is relieved to be home after a nightmare flight on Air Canada
On Monday, Air Canada Flight 851 en route to Calgary from London, England, was diverted to Edmonton after a drunk passenger allegedly assaulted a passenger and a female crew member and did some minor damage to the Boeing 777, the Canadian Press reports.
The passenger's obnoxious, drunken behaviour began about three hours into the flight. After repeated refusals to calm down or return to his seat, crew members had to team up to restrain the man.
The pilot placed the plane in lockdown and diverted the flight to Edmonton where RCMP boarded the plane and escorted the passenger away with his arms strapped behind him.
