Passenger Fined For 'Losing It' During Russian Flight

Arrest: Heathrow Airport
A plane passenger, who was disorderly on a flight from Russia to Heathrow, has been fined £1,000.

Liubov Mead, 55, of Gardiner Avenue, Fernwood, Newark, Nottinghamshire boarded a BA flight from St. Petersburg.

He made the cabin crews life a misery during the flight and was arrested when the plane landed.

Mead pleaded guilty at Uxbridge Magistrates Court to behaving in a threatening, abusive, insulting or disorderly manner towards the aircraft crew during the February 25 flight, contrary to the Air Navigation Order.

A second charge of refusing the commands of the flight crew to return to his seat was dropped.

Mead was also ordered to pay £300 costs and a £100 victim surcharge.
