Hey, I'm tryin' to get some sleep!

So recently, a man on a WestJet flight got kicked off his flight for taking a sleeping pill before takeoff. The flight attendent woke him up and said he was a “medical emergency” and escorte him off the plane in a wheelchair. The passenger, Stephen Bennett said he was humiliated.

What do you think about this story? I personally think this is just stupid, whats wrong with taking a sleeping pill?

I personally don’t see what is wrong with that. I understand that it may cause issues, it just doesn’t make any sense. He should be booked on to the next flight to his destination.

It’s a security risk. If something goes wrong during takeoff and the plane needs to evacuate, the guy would be a risk for himself and anybody else. And it’s the crews responsibility to ensure the safety for the people on board.

Yet, he’s for sure not the only one who does that.

Since this is America, I’m sure he’ll sue Westjet for millions…
…and get away with it 🙄
