    Default Unruly passenger ordered to repay Jet2.com thousands

    Today from Travel Mole. It's good to see the travel industry continuing to strike back at people who spoil the holidays of others.

    A passenger whose disruptive behaviour forced a Jet2 flight to divert has been ordered to pay the airline more than 3,000.

    The pilot of the flight from Stansted to Gran Canaria decided to land the plane in Faro after a row between Pauline Gordon and her partner Roland St Ville almost came to blows.

    Jet2 banned the couple for life following the incident in July 2017 but also took steps to recover losses incurred as a result of the diversion.

    The airline announced today that Clerkenwell and Shoreditch County Court has ordered Gordon to repay the airline more than 3,000.

    Jet2.com MD Phil Ward said:"This is the latest of many successful court rulings against disruptive passenger behaviour, showing once again that there are serious consequences if you act in a disruptive fashion onboard an aircraft.

    "As well as being banned from flying with us for life, Miss Gordon must now repay us for losses incurred, which came about as a direct result of her actions. As a family friendly airline carrying millions of holidaymakers, many of whom are families, we want our customers to have an enjoyable flight experience without the actions of a disruptive few spoiling it."

    Sooooo....the airline gets compensated for its trouble? What about all the people on the flight who were equally affected? Do they get a piece of that pie?

    3,000 will nowhere near cover Jet2's costs for this, 30,000 maybe. I do agree though that each of the other passengers on the flight should get something from the idiot as well.

    It's a good thing, one way or another. I just think the passengers should share in the compensation. Jack that fine up to ten grand and the world would take notice.

    Let me ask this, though. Why is the woman the only one being fined? Doesn't it take two to"almost come to blows"? He's banned, but doesn't get fined? Interesting.
