BERLIN Two drunken British women went on a rampage on a charter plane, hitting one flight attendant with a bottle of vodka and trying to open a cabin door as the aircraft was cruising over Austria at 10,000 meters, police said Saturday.

The staff on the flight from Greece to England eventually forced the women back to their seats and the pilot made an emergency landing in Frankfurt on Thursday, police told The Associated Press, confirming a statement they had issued on Friday.

As much as I hate to say this as I like my drink every now and then, they need to quit serving alcohol on flights. I know this would cut down on profits though.

Maybe they could at least use softer bottles...

I've wondered for some time, why do they contnue to serve booze when it causes so many problems? I've seen it so many times. People get a wee bit tipsy and turn nasty when they can't have what they want. Air travel is difficult to say the least, why do the airlines make it worse, for themselves and the passengers?
