The move by Jet2 to limit the sale of alcohol on their flights is certainly a step in the right direction and I would urge other carriers to follow their lead. For too long now passengers have had their flight to the island spoilt by a small group of people who insist on drinking excessively before and during the flight. The problem has become so serious that I know some people who refuse to travel during the summer months because they do not want their flight back to Britain ruined by bad behaviour from a small group of passengers.

I know that it is holiday time but there is no excuse for bad behaviour. I am always amazed when I go to a British airport that the bars are packed even in the early hours of the morning. Tough action needs to be taken to curb the antics of a few who ruin the holiday flight experience for many. I also believe that the sale of duty-free alcohol should be tackled. Passengers on flights should not be allowed to open their duty-free purchases whilst they are still on the aircraft. I know airlines operate a zero-tolerance policy with badly behaved passengers, but the time has come for even more action to ensure that everyone can enjoy their flight without having to worry. A clear message is needed telling everyone that bad behaviour will no longer be tolerated. Holiday time doesn't mean that you should ruin the fun for others. Enjoy your holiday but respect others.
