Ahmad-Fadhli-masPETALING JAYA: PAS wants the government to remove alcohol from the menu on board Malaysia Airlines flights after a disruptive drunk passenger caused a MAS plane to turn back to Melbourne last night.

“The government should emulate Middle East countries such as Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Egypt, Bahrain and a few other countries that are more stringent on the issue.

“Even a tiny country like Brunei is more daring in banning the serving of alcoholic drinks on board Royal Brunei Airlines flights,” said PAS Youth deputy chief Ahmad Fadhli Shaari.

Deputy transport minister Abdul Aziz Kaprawi said yesterday the disruptive passenger, identified as a 25-year-old Sri Lankan man, was believed to have been drunk.
