Drinks at flight can be expensive at times. A man, David Stephen Young, consumed six rounds of alcoholic beverages and boarded the flight to London from Calgary. Being heavily drunk, he had a rash behaviour which prompted a turnaround, an arrest and a hefty fine of over $16000. As 20,000 tons of fuel was wasted, the judge ordered him to compensate WestJet for the same. He apologized for his behaviour and the trouble caused by him.
