If they haven't already tagged him as a risk possibly. Vaping or smoking are fire ignition risks plus alleged drinking, if proven, shows a lack of common sense and responsibility. This guy is 30 and he doesn't know about these restrictions? Doubtful!

Seriously, not only with posting placards everywhere, flight attendants reminding you no smoking is allowed. No excuse at all.

This law really has no teeth for Mr. Puffaroo. Banned for life on SPIRIT Jokelines. If you want to put an end to it tell him to take the train because he has been banned on all domestic carriers here and in Europe. Oh, try to explain to your clients why a nice fellow like you has a global ban on all flights. Don't be an imbecile on flights just be quiet and pretend to enjoy the movie.
