Ever stood in an airport check-in queue and wished the airline boss could experience the same horror? Well the chief executive of budget airline Jet2.com did just that and wound up with a police caution for shouting expletives at his own staff, according to British media reports.
Philip Meeson was carrying out one of his routine spot checks at Manchester Airport when a queue of some 220 passengers got his blood boiling. He marched to the front of the line and laid into his staff with a tirade of four-letter words, various newspapers reported.
Meeson’s outburst won applause from the weary passengers, but the check-in staff were less than impressed and called the police, the reports said.
"Police were called to the check-in area at Terminal One, following reports that a man was being abusive to staff,” a Greater Manchester Police spokesperson told the Telegraph newspaper.
