WestJet bans man for life after disturbing Penticton flight

WestJet has banned a 38-year-old Calgary man for life after causing a disturbance on a flight to Penticton.

RCMP Corporal Don Wrigglesworth says it happened last Thursday night.

“RCMP responded to a report of a disturbance at the Penticton Airport,” he said “A WestJet flight had arrived and one of the passengers had been unruly and severely intoxicated on the flight”

The man was arrested and spent the night in jail.

Wrigglesworth says no criminal charges were laid against the man, but he received a ban from WestJet for future flights.
