Sunwing Airlines plans to sue couple over diverted Caribbean flight

first_img Tweet Share Share LifestyleNewsRegionalTravel Sunwing Airlines plans to sue couple over diverted Caribbean flight by: – February 6, 2013 54 Views   no discussionscenter_img Share Sharing is caring! A Sunwing spokesman told reporters the airline footed the bill for the 170 passengers who were forced to overnight in Bermuda, saying the air-rage incident could cost as much as US$50,000.HAMILTON, Bermuda – A Canadian low-cost airline says it plans to sue a couple after they were fined US$500 each in a court here following an altercation on a Caribbean-bound plane which forced the captain to divert the airline to Bermuda.Bermuda police arrested the Canadian couple and their 22-year-old son after the Sunwing Airlines’ flight, carrying 170 passengers, touched down at Bermuda’s L.F. Wade International Airport last Friday. A younger son with the family was not arrested.The plane continued its journey to its original destination on Saturday.A Sunwing spokesman told reporters the airline footed the bill for the 170 passengers who were forced to overnight in Bermuda, saying the air-rage incident could cost as much as US$50,000.The spokesman said the cost would also include landing fees, flying a mechanic to Bermuda to check the aircraft for stress fractures due to the fact it had to land overweight as well as hotel and meals for passengers stuck in both Bermuda and the Dominican Republic.The spokesman said Sunwing intended to seek recourse and planned to sue the family in civil court.The Magistrate’s Court was told that the pilot decided to divert to Bermuda two hours into the flight, after David McNeil, Sr, 54, who pleaded guilty to behaving in a disorderly manner and using profane language towards a member of the flight crew and his 52-year-old wife, Donna McNeil, admitted disobeying a lawful command.The incidents started after their son, David McNeil, Jr, was refused access to the plane’s toilets as the aircraft took off from Halifax.The son was initially charged with smoking on the aircraft but prosecutors chose to offer no evidence against him after he pleaded not guilty. He was discharged by Senior Magistrate Archibald Warner.The court heard that while passengers had been asked not to move, the son left his seat to go to the bathroom and refused the flight attendant’s orders to return to his seat.After the father swore at the attendant, the mother started cursing at the crew. The three were toldto return to their seats, but did not do so and kept moving about the plane.The magistrate ordered the parents to pay their US$500 fines immediately or face 10 days in jail.

Football: No. 10 Wisconsin rolls to 54-10 win over Akron behind career day from Jazz Peavy

first_imgFor what feels like a long time, the University of Wisconsin football team has sought consistent production from its two top wide receivers.Lately in the program’s history, it hasn’t happened. But that may change in 2016, if Jazz Peavy and Robert Wheelwright’s play during No. 10 Wisconsin’s 54-10 drubbing of Akron Saturday at Camp Randall Stadium was any indication.Peavy, a redshirt junior, had a career day. He hauled in two touchdowns for the first scores of his Badger tenure. The fifth-year senior Wheelwright caught four passes for 99 yards, including a screen play that went for 47 yards down the Badger sideline.“Rob makes me so much better,” Peavy said. “I’m sure I make Rob better. Practice, games, it don’t matter, we’re always pushing each other.”It was arguably the most productive day for Wisconsin receivers in nearly three seasons. The last time two UW (2-0) receivers had more than 100 yards was the 2012 Rose Bowl, when Nick Toon and Jared Abbrederis both eclipsed the century mark.Wheelwright also said the one-two combo at receivers is a product of the starters feeding off each other.“Use each other each week as motivation,” Wheelwright said when asked how they could improve off of Saturday’s performance. “Try to be better than the next guy.”Wisconsin’s first drive demonstrated they would be dominant all day. The offense drove 83 yards on the first drive of the game, which took nearly seven minutes off the clock. Through the first two games of 2016, UW has outgained its opponents 331 to 11 in the first quarter.After the season’s first two games, the UW defense is responsible for allowing just as many touchdowns as the team’s offense and special teams (one). The defense forced two turnovers on the afternoon. Fifth-year senior safety Leo Musso intercepted Woodson in the second quarter, after junior cornerback Derrick Tindal forced a fumble recovered by senior corner Sojourn Shelton.Senior running back Corey Clement pounded the Akron defense early and often. In just two quarters, Clement carried the ball 21 times for 111 yards and two touchdowns. Clement was ruled out for the second half with a left leg injury and was on the bench having his ankles taped late in the second quarter.“Seeing that we were up a lot, why risk it to turn into a bigger injury?” Clement said after the game. “I’ve dealt with injuries in the past, and I know it’s nothing to play with.”Clement added he could have ran the ball 41 times if need be.Bart Houston had another solid day under center, despite a shaky start. The fifth-year senior completed 15 of 22 passes for 231 yards and two touchdowns, both to Peavy in the second quarter.After Clement’s first touchdown, Wisconsin was driving again when it faced a 4th-and-goal late in the first quarter. UW head coach Paul Chryst opted to keep the offense on the field in lieu of kicking a field goal. Clement made a nice cut to open space, and it looked like he’d score, but he slipped.Akron took over at its own three-yard line. After a false start and an offensive pass interference, redshirt junior Alec James sacked quarterback Thomas Woodson in the end zone for a safety to put Wisconsin up 9-0.“The o-line just slanted,” James said. “They slid pretty hard and I just kind of backdoored it. My teammates made him step up and I was just there to make the play.”A one-yard touchdown run from Clement on UW’s next drive, followed by Peavy’s first touchdown, a 13-yard slant reception, put UW up 23-0. Akron wide receiver JoJo Natson put the Zips on the board with 3:12 remaining in the first half on a 55-yard punt return, during which Wisconsin’s coverage unit looked disorganized and got burned.With 2:10 left in the second quarter, Houston dropped a dime into Peavy’s hands from 34 yards out for the pairs second touchdown connection of the game to increase the Badgers’ lead to 30-7. An Akron field goal as time expired to close the first half made it 30-10.The Badgers went up 33-10 when Rafael Gaglianone’s lone field goal attempt was good from 33 yards out.Redshirt freshman Alex Hornibrook replaced Houston at quarterback in the third quarter with efficiency. He completed all five of his passes for 61 yards, including a six-yard touchdown to sophomore fullback Alec Ingold in the flat to up the UW lead to 40-10 and a beautiful ball to freshman receiver A.J. Taylor on a corner route for 35 yards.“It was fun to be out there,” Hornibrook said. “I was excited I got to go in and for the first one it felt pretty good.”In the fourth quarter, redshirt freshman Bradrick Shaw saw his first game action as a Badger. He ran for 74 yards on nine carries, and somersaulted into the end zone to cap a 35-yard touchdown run with 7:54 left in the game to make it 54-10, which held as the final score.Redshirt junior fullback Austin Ramesh had scored his second career touchdown earlier in the fourth and upped Wisconsin’s lead to 47-10.last_img read more

Jamaica to benefit from IDB funding

first_imgThe Inter-American Development Bank (IDB) is providing US$248 million in additional loan support for three government initiatives in Jamaica.Jamaican authorities said the Washington-based financial institution is providing US$160 million for the Public Sector Transformation Project; US$68 million for the National Identification System (NIDS); and US$20 million to further boost national security technology inputs.Agreement signed Finance and the Public Service Minister, Audley Shaw, and IDB President, Luis Alberto Moreno, signed the agreements at a ceremony that coincided with the seventh annual IDB Caribbean Governors’ Conference, which ended in Kingston on Tuesday.Shaw, who emphasized the importance of the public-sector transformation program, reiterated that 84 State entities are being targeted for closure, divestment, merging or subsuming back into Central Government over the next three years.Shaw, noting that the NIDS implementation is “absolutely important” for Jamaica, said the concept is similar to what obtains in the United States where “everybody born gets a social security card… and that is (the) main instrument that identifies you from birth.I would like to suggest that the backing of the IDB for the promulgation of the NIDS is, I think, ultimate proof of the efficacy of this program,” he added.Regarding the provision for national security, Shaw said “we simply need to bring more technology into the business of crime-fighting”, in order to strengthen public safety and citizen security.Moreno said the IDB’s latest support forms part of the financial institution’s commitment to assist Jamaica to embark on the engagements that will yield higher levels of growth and development.The seventh annual Caribbean Governors’ Meeting was hosted by the Bank of Jamaica (BOJ) under the theme “Jump Caribbean” and focused on helping the region to embrace the digital revolution as a developmental tool.last_img read more

Wakaso: off the pitch conduct key to Afcon success

first_imgGhana and Deportivo Alaves midfielder Mubarak Wakaso believes how his fellow team mates in the national team conduct themselves off the pitch will be key to ending Ghana’s Afcon drought.In the past, players have been reported to indulge in actions that have derailed the focus of the team.These activities vary from confrontations with management of the team over bonuses as well as disagreements over personnel selections.The Black Stars have managed an appearance in the finals and semifinals in the last two editions of the competition.According to Wakaso the team must exhibit a different level of maturity in the upcoming tournament in Egypt to accomplish what they haven’t in the past.“Automatically we have to be under pressure because for the past three Afcons we always make it to the semi-final but yet we don’t win it.“We always have it mind to come back with the trophy but it hasn’t happened.“I think as a player we need to sit down and put things in order before we move to this particular tournament.“The problem remains how we will manage ourselves outside the pitch before we go on to play,” he told online outlet Football made in Ghana.The Black Stars will battle it out in Group F with defending Champions Cameroon,Benin and Guinea-Bissau.last_img read more
