and flight attendants don't mix. (Thanks to Igor for this story)
According to the Aviation Herald, a drunken Ukrainian seaman, aged 27, recently disrupted a transatlantic Lufthansa flight from Sao Paulo to Frankfurt. Since the flight attendants couldn't calm him down, they asked passengers to help out. The unnamed Ukrainian was then "helped to calm down" by some fellow Ukrainian seamen.
Upon his arrival in Germany, the Ukrainian was taken to a hospital by police because it seemed to German police that the "help" the drunkard received was indeed a fractured skull.
It turns out, the Ukrainian's skull was not fractured, and he was promptly put on a flight back to Ukraine...Classic.
