If Pigs Can Fly, Could they Please Fly Somewhere Else?

Australian Tourist Arrested, Blacklisted and Deported for Acting Up on Melbourne to Bali Flight.


Bali News: If Pigs Can Fly, Could they Please Fly Somewhere Else?

(4/11/2009)

Garuda 719 flying from Melbourne to Denpasar on Friday, April 3, 2009, had an unwanted episode of in-flight entertainment when 38-year-old Australian, Robert John Grant, became disorderly at 30,000 feet.

15 minutes before its scheduled landing in Bali, the Australian man angrily refused to return to chair and buckle his seat belt to prepare for landing. When the flight's purser repeated the request, Grant reportedly struck the cabin crew member.

Both crew and fellow passengers saw the man as a threat to safety, causing them to physically restrain Grant until the plane landed in Bali where security forces were on stand-by.

Earlier in the flight, the man had pinched the cheek of a 20-year-old stewardess after being refused an order of whiskey and serving himself from a service trolley.

In Bali, when a hand-cuffed Grant was removed from the aircraft and placed in an immigration office at Bali's airport, he continued his charm offensive by breaking a glass window and striking a security officer.

Must Have Been Something He Drank?

Grant's plea of diminished responsibility due to intoxication gained little sympathy from Bali authorities who immediately deported that man and placed him on a aviation and immigration blacklist making a future visit to Bali problematic.

Through his immediate deportation, Grant, however, did manage side-step a legal process that could have ended in a prison sentence for his loutish behavior.
