Many have supported the control of drinking alcohol before boarding an airplane. As detailed on reports by  Telegraph and Daily Mail, bans on drinking alcohol before flights have been applied by some airlines already such as Jet2. Jet2 has banned selling alcohol on their early morning flights. 73 percent of the respondents of a survey by the World Travel Market agreed with the decision of Jet2 airlines.

The managing director of Jet2 airlines, Phil Ward, also wishes that other airlines would also impose these kinds of rules. For the new aviation minister, Lord Ahmad, he wants to look into the thought of allowing bars near the airport to sell alcoholic drinks at all times. According to the Civil Aviation Authority, there has been a great increase of dangerous in-flight incidents for the past 3 years.

The World Travel Market also received a survey result that one-fourth of 1000 respondents have experienced disturbing passengers on their flights. The World Travel Market's senior director, Simon Press, expressed that the increase of reported air rage was alarming and the rages seemed to be alcohol-related. It was also said that for the past two years there were about 440 people arrested due to the accusation of being drunk on the plane and airports.

 With these statistics and survey results, more and more have shown that they encourage imposing strict rules with regards to drinking alcohol on plane. Action has been taken such that new airport guidelines have been established. Some of these guidelines include the tamper-free bags for alcoholic drinks bought at Duty Free stores, Airlines seeking full compensation for disruptive behaviors and passengers being given advice not to open and consume alcohol before and during their flight.

 As Lord Ahmad said, "I don't think we want to kill merriment altogether, but I think it is important that passengers who board planes are also responsible and have the responsibility to other passengers, and that certainly should be the factor which we bear in mind." Here is one instance of a drunk airplane passenger:
