That's where they should be held accountable for any and all associated costs, including costs incurred due to missed flights for other travelers, etc.

Will they quit smoking or run outside and light up before sentencing? Yes they should
be held accountable for all costs incurred and for the inconvenience of others.

Life is about choices. Not smoking on flights is common knowledge. They chose to do so.

On long flights, I used to chew or just knock myself out with two vodka and a zopiclone.

There is sprays, patches, gums, etc. Plenty of choices to satisfy the adiction.

You can even book a series of connecting flights where possible so no real long flight.

Cessation methods are a no brainer but apparently this family has no brains. How does that work?

Not on a charter like Sunwing. NS to Mexico would be at least 5hrs.

That's about the worst kind of stupid I've seen today. They should be made to walk home!-

Maybe if 2/3 of the passengers wanted to smoke, they could just smoke out the non smokers.

If they're going to go that route (which they won't, trust me) they could just have smoking and non-smoking flights. Problem solved.

I smoke and I'll be on the non-smoking flight, thank you. Being stuck in a confined space with that many smokers would drive me nuts. I'll just chew gum!

But about the people in the OP, I sincerely don't understand people like that. What the hell did they think was going to happen, that they'd just let them smoke? There's a time to take a stand and then there's a time to not inconvenience an entire plane load of people. Freaking morons.

Pipe N2O into the cabin and wake everyone up with an airhorn when they get there. No more sh*tty passenger problems.

I'm still just shaking my head at the idiots in the OP, lol. I'm picturing the remaining passengers ganging up on them and inundating them with nicotine patches, like that scene from "Thank You For Smoking". Couldn't find the actual scene, unfortunate because it's hilarious. But this is the movie.

Ron and I have that covered, we devised, last year sometime, an intravenous alcohol drip package that can be purchased for long journey's, lol. I'm awaiting word from Seagrams for some prototype seed money, then I'm hitting the Dragons' Den.

Even the regular priced airfare back from Bermuda is going to be expensive X 4.

I am not sure of this but as a business the Airline has the right to refuse their business. Try getting a flight after that one. Try getting put of Cape Breton after this one. May have to drive to the US. I hear the causeway to Europe is out so that is their only choice.

Cuba isn't that far away. They can smoke cigars or build a raft out of them to sail home.

And far too often, that's what happened when WestJet started, (It was co-founded by the same guy who started SouthWest), then of course Greyhound. We now have bus people travelling by air, because they can afford it. I don't want to sound snobbish, but air travel is in a race to the bottom; wages and working conditions are in a steep decline in order to woo the WalMart passenger who wants that $49 YUL-EWR ticket, before taxes of course. It cost me $450 in airfare to travel from YYZ to LHR return, in 1974, $h!t, you can get there and back for less now, and everything else costs 10X now what it did then, WTF? Oh, and trust me, morons also sit in J class, so you can't excape them there either, but they are a better class of moron .

BTW, an ashtray is required in each lav believe it or not, It is an MEL (Minimum Equipment List) item. If it is missing the lav is no longer serviceable. So don't remove them, expecially on long flights, eveyone else's bladder will thank you.

Oh well that changes it a bit.

Diverting the flight because you think a passenger smells of cigarette smoke... that's a bit ridiculous.

I was under the impression that the passengers had set off an alarm or caused smoke in the cabin.

I think we're going to hit the point where grumpy passengers get tossed in plane jail at the back of the cabin.

Last I heard was that their fine was now over $15,000.00. It is now Sunwing's turn to grab their pound of flesh.
I have no problem with this. It was Sunwing's passegers who got the bloody run around because of a family of
nicotine addicts. Their biggest mistake was verbally abusing the crew. If they had just quietly obeyed the crew
there would have been no problems.
I'm a former three pac a day man, I can understand a bit of where they were coming from but they were comepletely
beyond reason.

I think perhaps the reason had more to do with them being obnoxious!
