A passenger who became unruly after allegedly drinking too much alcohol had to be taped to his seat on a trans-Atlantic flight, witnesses and authorities said.

A startling photo of the subdued man ended up on a blog run by New York businessman Andy Ellwood, who said he received the picture from an acquaintance who witnessed the incident.

“My friend was on the flight and he sent me the photo because we like to trade travel war stories,” Ellwood told NBC News.

His friend did not want to be identified or talk with the media, Ellwood said, but he recounted the story to him in detail.

This is to funny. Soon you'll see alcohol banned from planes because of the people like this guy.

I sat behind a guy like this on an 11 hour flight once. They threatened him with arrest when they landed. He was really drunk and his girlfriend spent half the time craning her neck over her seat and offering me sleeping pills and vicodin.

The flight attendants eventually cuffed him to his seat but they *did* have a roll of duct tape... which the drunk guy had taken and started playing with (which became the last straw basically... lol)

mine is not as bad, but on a flight from syd to L.A i was awoken in the middle of the night by a woman in the aisle directly next to me on the floor having a fit...not something you want to see whilst 10km up in the middle of the pacific ocean.

But this incident in fact worked in my favour as i was sitting next to a beautiful finnish chick. She was quite frightened and being the gentlemen that i am i comforted her.

Lets just say there was more ''comforting'' when we got to out destination
