18 OCTOBER 2018: CANADA

An investigation into a December 2017 incident on board a Canadian military flight operating between Greece and Latvia found that the crew had allegedly been told not to confront drunk, abusive VIP guests on board. The flight crew felt they had no choice but to endure the unruly behaviour as the individuals were guests of Canada’s Chief of Defence Staff, General Jonathan Vance. VIP civilian passengers, including former NHL player Dave ‘Tiger’ Williams and former NHL general manager Brian Burke, had been exempted from security screening before the flight, and other intoxicated passengers boarded the Canadian Forces aircraft with alcoholic drinks in their hands.
