Fly to Exotic Beach Destinations & Get $30 Off.

Mother Janay Flowers says she is indebted to a “rock star” nurse for saving her baby’s life on an airplane.

On Thursday, Flowers, a model from Tampa, Fla., was flying with her infant Nevaeh on American Airlines to San Antonio, Tex., where her husband, a member of the U.S. Air Force, will be stationed, reported The Dallas Morning News. Nevaeh, who had a slight fever, mostly slept on the three-hour flight. But 15 minutes before landing, the 11-month-old woke up crying.

Newlywed downed 4 beers before flight, went on homophobic rant and attacked flight attendants on way to his honeymoon

A man on an easyJet flight was supposed to be on his way to Egypt, where he was set to celebrate his honeymoon with his bride. Instead, he has been handed seven months in jail after he drunkenly assaulted two flight attendants and went on a homophobic rant.

The court heard that he was escorted off the plane by police officers who he abused, calling one of them a ‘baldy c***’. His wife was heard shouting: ‘Look at what you’ve done. You have f****** off our honeymoon!’

Judge David Rennie said: ‘It was like a child having a tantrum. You chose to drink four pints and to behave in a foul-mouthed, highly abusive manner. Something of your true character did reveal itself.

‘We do have to ask why airports are selling that amount of alcohol outside of usual licensing hours.

‘An attack on the perceived sexuality of these men was utterly shameful. People like you find yourself on the edge of society.

‘Only an immediate custodial sentence can be justified.’ 

 
Michael Cunnett, 38, was jailed for seven months today for punching two easyJet crew members after downing four pints of Stella ahead of the 9am flight in February

A friend has left a touching tribute for a “beautiful” woman who died unexpectedly onboard a Qantas flight.

Ms Tracy, an NBN employee from the Melbourne suburb of Sunshine West, died despite the best efforts of two medics on board the flight who tried in vain to save her life.

“Our cabin crew were assisted by two doctors onboard. We are very grateful for their assistance,” a Qantas spokesperson said.
