Now that’s a way to get some attention

50-year-old passenger disrobes mid-flight

Man ignored requests to get dressed, refused to be covered with blanket

(from the Associated Press, July 1 2009)

“ALBUQUERQUE, New Mexico – A cross-country US Airways flight was diverted to Albuquerque after a male passenger removed his clothing mid-flight.

Dan Jiron, a spokesman for the Albuquerque airport, says 50-year-old Keith Wright of New York disrobed Tuesday while sitting in his seat in the back of the aircraft. He says Wright was unresponsive when a flight attendant asked him repeatedly to get dressed and refused to be covered with a blanket.

Jiron says law enforcement employees who were passengers on the plane helped subdue and handcuff Wright before the flight landed. The FBI says Wright is in federal custody on a charge of interfering with flight crew members and attendants.

A US Airways spokeswoman says the plane from North Carolina continued on to Los Angeles after Wright’s arrest.”

Remember friends–they aren’t kidding when they say you have to do what the flight attendants tell you to do.  Although,  it sure is a good story….
