Ibiza is a beautiful island and I have been in the fortunate position of being able to visit it almost once a year for the last few years.
However, there is a problem with regard to the appalling behaviour I have experienced on flights I have taken with different carriers to get to my destination.
There are some passengers, not just young people, who behave in the most appalling manner through over-indulgence in alcohol to the point of severely, in my view, compromising the safety of other passengers and the crew.
If there was ever to be an emergency many of the passengers would have drunk so much that they would not be able to cope with a crisis.
Something needs to be done and something can be done. I, for one, would be willing to forgo my civil rights in being able to indulge in alcohol and to make travelling alcohol-free as it is now smoke-free.
I appreciate airlines supplement their flight income by the sale of alcohol, something which I think is reprehensible considering the amount of alcohol these people have already consumed before they take the flight and during it through their own purchases at duty free.
As much as Ibiza is a wonderful destination to go to, it is seriously compromised by the behaviour of people who have no respect for themselves, never mind others.
As the railways are seeking to address and change our society's attitude to excessive alcohol consumption, is it not about time that airlines did the same?
