Korean Air admits using electric stun gun on five passengers

Submitted
South Korea's national airline has used electric stun guns on five passengers during flights, the BBC has learned. Korean Air is believed to be the only major carrier to routinely have the weapons on board. The airline is ramping up training for staff using the guns after criticism for the way it handled a recent in-flight disturbance. In that incident, US singer Richard Marx was among passengers who helped restrain an unruly passenger. (www.msn.com) More...

Can't imagine the chaos if that nutbar flight attendant from Jet Blue had gotten his hands on a stun gun. But, then again with some these idiot pax these days it might be worth seeing it.

We could recreate "The long walk" (King/Bachman) - only on a long flight with PITA PAX.....

Great. Just tazer the drunken fools, leave them on the floor, and continue on to destination. Why should the 99.5% of pax who behave have to be severely inconvenienced by drunk idiots?

What other kind of stun guns are there? Ones that fire rubber bullets?

I think there is the kind that pops a clenched fist (maybe gloved) out of the barrel.

If the passengers are acting up why don't they drop them out the door and cone back for them later? I bet it would the attendants feel better.

Admitting that your airline does not have stun guns is like posting a "gun free zone" sign on a restaurant door. Nuts!

Simply great however I think that cardio-vascular doctors should be brought into the discussion to see if tazer applications coould cause irreversible harm to the drunk passenger i.e. fatal stroke.

So...cause and effect. If they create the cause, they can deal with the effect. There, problem solved.
