AND FINALLY: Dodgy flight in America

An American Airlines' pilot was assaulted last week as a flight from Miami to Los Angeles was about to take off.

It seems that when asked to fix his safety belt a passenger was asleep and inebriated.  A pilot and crew member attempted to de–plane him as he was clearly a danger.  At this point the pilot was attacked by the passenger's brother and suffered a black eye.

The moral of the story. 

The new security doors to the cockpit work both ways.  If you are a pilot and have an unruly traveller stay up front.  Let the cabin staff and helpful passengers sort it out!
