Man caught smoking in an AirAsia aircraft

The Star today reported about an Air Asia passenger who has been arrested at the airport in Sandakan for smoking in the toilet of the aircraft.

The 27-year-old man, who was on the flight from Kuala Lumpur to Sandakan on Sunday, was caught smoking in the toilet by a flight attendant about 30 minutes before landing. Apparently, he hasn't been paying attention to the safety demonstration onboard.

The man was handed over to airport policemen shortly after the flight landed at 10am. According to the police, the case would be forwarded to the Health Department for further action.

There you have it. Some don'ts can land you in trouble. Smoking is best done in the comfort of your own home, outdoors, of course.

For your viewing pleasure, here's an AirAsia inflight safety demonstration but with a (funny) twist, sure to get every passenger sit up and pay attention.


  1. Funny! :D

    There's a budget airline in SA called kulula.com. They're famous for their humour. Here's an announcement. I hope you understand his accent! ;)

  2. oh cool!! i like how they took action on the rule breaker!! and i love that announcement too, haha~~

  3. Some people will want their ciggie fix regardless of the consequence and inconvenience to others.

    Good that he was taken into action.

  4. Rurousha, thanks for the laugh there. I suppose only budget airlines serve this kind of humour? AirAsia is Malaysia's budget airline.

  5. SK, kudos to AirAsia for taking action!

  6. Lina, which goes to show that rules are not always made to be broken.
