Can’t possibly make this up.

“I took a Xanax, which is a sedative that knocks you out, to put me to sleep on the flight,” Pritchard told Metro UK. “I didn’t realize you’re not supposed to mix them with alcohol. I had a lot of alcohol and blacked out.”

At some point, the FAA will outlaw alcohol on planes. They should. They really should. It is at the core of 99% of such incidents.

  1. Please, Ed, just for once, STFU – it would prevent you from being a moron.

    I specifically referenced outlawing alcohol ON PLANES – just as the outlawed TOBACCO on planes. Which wasn’t followed by wild riots from the half dozen libertarians that care, either.

  2. Stan, Gwyn – the reason I said what I said is because this sort of thing happens far too frequently, and it is invariably people mixing ‘airplane drugs’ (i.e. Xanax or Ambient) with hard liquors, followed by the expected results.

    In nearly all of the in-flight events that required restraining a cray-cray passenger, you have the same variables : long-distance flight, red eye, sleep-aid, liquor. This nearly always ends the same way.

    Sure, you could mandate a cabin announcement telling passengers to not mix drugs and alcohol, and absolutely nothing will change – or, you can simply no longer serve alcohol on flights.

    Passengers survived when smoking was eliminated. They will survive without alcohol for up to 17 hours while flying, if this were to pass.
