London - A drunken holiday passenger who threatened to stab a pilot and kill everyone on board has been jailed for eight months. Martin Johnson, 56, who had been drinking wine before boarding, was also seen swigging from a bottle while in his seat on board.
Prosecutor Janine Wood said cabin crew found an empty bottle of wine in the toilet and also discovered that someone had urinated all over the cubicle.
They alerted the pilot and when they announced over a tannoy that the flight was returning to Bristol, Johnson became abusive. He told cabin crew: “If the pilot turns us around I am going to stab him and I am going to hit him. I'm going to stab an air hostess and kill everybody on the plane.”
Johnson was arrested when the flight landed back at Bristol on the evening of 27 April.
