Delta bans drunk flirt for life

A Georgia man who tried to impress a young Georgia lady aboard a Delta flight after quaffing multiple mixed drinks has been banned from the Atlanta-based airline for life.

Repeated testing indicates five of these do not make anyone sexy.

Five of these can make the "friendly skies" too friendly, according to recent reports.

“I’m a dumb[bleep],” says Bryan Sisco, 40, from Winston in south Douglas County, in The Commercial Appeal.

The Memphis newspaper recounts the following tale:

Sisco drank beer before heading to the Dallas airport for an evening flight to Atlanta. Once there, Delta flight 2060 was delayed for a couple of hours, so he got hopped up on five double whiskey and Cokes.

When he boarded the plane last Thursday, Sisco, who said he’s in the process of getting a divorce, sat in the wrong seat and began flirting with Danielle Valimont, 23, from Griffin.

In her blog, Valimont said Sisco asked “Have you ever wondered if someone could get something on the plane they weren’t supposed to?”

Then he fired up a “silver metal torch-like item,” Valimont wrote.

TSA, it seems, was once again feeling up the wrong people.

Sisco told her he had a gas cannister that could make everyone on board pass out.

She freaked out and texted a message to friends — “‘I’m sitting beside a crazy man.”

The loquacious passenger told her he was an air marshal, a job he was “born into” because his dad was in the CIA.

Valimont faked a bathroom run and alerted a flight attendant to the amorous loon.

Pilots diverted the plane to Memphis, where police came aboard and arrested Sisco, who says he has no recollection of that event.

“I fell asleep, and woke up in handcuffs in Memphis with the FBI questioning me, Sisco told The Commercial Appeal. “I spent three days in a county jail and a fourth day in a federal penitentiary. I was stripped buck-naked twice.”

Facing charges of carrying a weapon or explosive on an aircraft, he was released on a $10,000 bond.

Delta’s no longer ready when you are Mr. Sisco.

This is why I stick to wine on Delta. Whiskey and cokes get anyone in trouble.

Its all fun and games until you’re “stripped buck-naked twice” in a Federal Penitentiary.

I have NEVER understood the concept of wanting to get drunk either in an airport, or even worse, on a plane. I mean, the last place on earth I want to get hammered is in a small contained metal cylinder, strapped to an uncomfortable chair, with a lot of other people all around me who are NOT drinking. Seriously. Everything fun about drinking is the polar opposite of being on a plane.

I wonder if he’s kin to the guy that ran down the “up” escalator in 2002 while being chased by police and thus shutting down both Hartsfield and disrupting air traffic on the entire eastern seaboard?

I think the TSA may be our solution for the future of healthcare. Where else can you get a free x-ray and if you refuse to allow them to x-ray you, you can get a free colonoscopy.

Why are we not concerned that the Gestapo TSA allowed this idiot past their ever-so-efficient screening with an incendiary device ? ? This is further proof that TSA screening is totally useless and must be halted immediately.

Unfortunately, our Congress hasn’t got the sense to understand that even a drunken idiot can easily outsmart the TSA security measures. So, the particular TSA Gorillas who screened him should be singled out and FIRED immediately, and every other jackbooted TSA employee at DFW Airport should be retrained BEFORE they are allowed to come anywhere near another TSA security line.

whiskey / coke—a waste of good whiskey. Drink whiskey straight or with just a little water (not too much). It’s not worth wasting.

what a dipstick this guy is. and the comment about the cause of his divorce being a mystery – not to me it isn’t. it’s probably his behavior over and over and over and over again. no doubt alcohol is always involved and his wife got fed up and got gone from his life. and to the person who said that the TSA agents should be fired – just so you know if the guy got wasted in the airport bar that is WELL PAST THE TSA POINT so NOT their fault although TSA really is useless merely because of the incendiary device he lit up (metal torch-like item) on the plane. allowing THAT thru is reason for immediate termination.

The reason I hate whiskey and Coke (or in my case, Coke Zero) in the first place is that they don’t belong in the same sentence.

I always fly Delta drunk after I throw a couple back in the crown room with the pilots. This is the only way I can deal with the other drunks pretending to be Federal Marshall and inviting me to join the Mile High club.

He must be an Anglo, because I get stripped down at every point and I advise TSA that I have an unremoveable bracelette and am wearing an underwire bra. So I would prefer the scanner. They choose to pat me down everytime. It gets jiggy and I almost ask in the end “Where’s my Kiss.!”..It’s called profiling. LOL…….!!!!

I have never understood how the airline (I fly Delta almost exclusively) can help people get loaded, esp. in first class, where they then land and head to a car to drive home. It seems unlikely one can sober up in the 45 minutes it takes to get off the plane, get your bag and get behind the wheel. This guy is not alone when it comes to idiotic flight behavior.
