I know you’re not supposed to joke about aviation security, but seriously was this really a threat?
A former Prime Minister of the Cook Islands, Sir Geoffrey Henry, has been removed from an Air New Zealand flight for remarking that he was a terrorist when boarding the plane.
According to Air New Zealand,
Safety of our passengers and crew is of paramount importance so the passenger was escorted off the aircraft.
Bet the flight became that much safer!
Sure, the former Prime Minister is an idiot. You didn’t joke about bombs in an airport long before 9-11. Hard to imagine what was going through the guy’s head, this wasn’t funny. But hard to imagine as well that anyone believed he was a threat to have on board the aircraft.
