The Royal Newfoundland Constabulary says officers were called to St. John’s International Airport today because of an alleged unruly passenger.

Const. Talia Murphy says Air Canada Flight 698 from Toronto landed at the airport around 3:30 a.m.

Murphy says a 33-year-old man from Newfoundland was allegedly intoxicated and police assistance was requested.

She says Air Canada is also investigating whether the man was smoking on board the plane.

The man was detained by police and denied boarding to a connecting flight to Deer Lake, N.L., but no charges have been laid.

    I witness this every year I go on vacation isn't it time for the Air lines to take responsibily for their actions,last year while returning from Florida an intoxicated man had to be escorted to his seat he was so drunk only 5 minutes later taken back of the plane because he was getting so unruly it held us up for 35 minutes because then he had to be removed from the plane then they had to remove his baggage.Where was security when they let this jerk on the connecting flight from Toronto,my opinion the airlines should b held responsible not the ass who's drunk,in saying that it's all the other passagers that have to pay the price.
