A Sunwing Airlines aircraft was forced to make an unscheduled landing in Bermuda, after a family was allegedly caught smoking aboard.
This piece of news reminded me of the days when at the check-in they would ask you ‘smoking’ or ‘non-smoking’. The smokers were banished to the back of the plane and to get to the bathroom you would go through a cloud of smoke. I presume being seated in the rows closest to the smoking section, didn’t make too much of a difference to your ‘non-smoking’ choice.
“A Cape Breton family that made headlines after they were allegedly caught smoking aboard a Sunwing Airlines jet from Halifax to the Dominican Republic last Friday are on their way home.
The aircraft was forced to make an unscheduled landing in Bermuda, which cost the airline an estimated $50,000.
In a phone interview Tuesday afternoon, Darlene MacNeil told CBC News she was at an airport in Bermuda with her husband and two sons waiting for a flight home.
MacNeil said when the family returns safely to Canadian soil, they’ll tell their side of the story.”
