British Airways Says No Means No Flying High While Flying High, Drunk Businessman Does UK Time for Drunk and Disorderly

Convicted of being drunk on an aircraft, and sentenced at Isleworth Crown Court in west London on September 23 after getting drunk on beer and bourbon with friends in Phoenix, and drunker aboard a British Airways Phoenix-London Boeing, Mortgage consultant Timothy Bradley propositioned a woman, shouted, verbally threatened the pilot, and brandished glass.

Judge Richard McGregor-Johnson was not amused.

In business class, no less.

He was arrested when flight 288 arrived at Heathrow.

He’s paying for it now, and is one month into his three month sentence.

I only have one thing to say to Timothy Bradley (who may have to look into another line of work when he gets out.)

Better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to speak out and remove all doubt.

Mark Twain
