Punishment you can receive if you’re caught joining mile high club
| Last updated
Having sex during a flight can seem like a once in a lifetime opportunity, but do you take the risk of being caught red-handed?
Thought, this little bit of fun might land you in some hot water if anyone finds out.
The ‘Mile-High Club’ has been somewhat of a legendary fantasy for some, with two people recently going viral for seemingly joining the club.
You could think it’s totally harmless, but is it actually illegal?
Britain doesn’t currently have any laws surrounding having sex on a plane, but there are some other issues you may need to be wary of should you try to get jiggly up in the air.
For example, it’s illegal to have sex in a public toilet area, which would be something you’d be breaking if having sex up in the plane loo, according to section 71 of the Sexual Offences Act 2003.
If the act is proven it could land you a hefty £1,000 fine or even up to six months locked up.
That’s not exactly worth a few minutes - or seconds - of fun, is it?
You could also be at risk of public indecency or disorderly conduct charges as well as being banned from the airline. So it's not really worth it.
While anyone who has the guts to try and get it on during a busy flight probably thinks they’re sneaky enough to get away with it, according to a bunch of flight attendants on Reddit, that’s often not the case.
“I’m curious what FA’s thoughts are on couples who join the mile high club on flights are?” one asked on the forum site.
“Are you absolutely obliged to stop it happening, do you let it slide?”
The general consensus is that it’s nothing short of ‘disgusting’, but also far more obvious than some people realise.
A number of flight crew jumped into the comments to share what they tend to do to put a stop to it, with one writing: “They don't. We stop them and if they try messing around under the blankets we know and have multiple FAs walk by to verify. If done correctly they will know we know. We make eye contact.”
Someone else said: “It’s gross and so obvious. We don’t let it happen. Once you let one couple do it, they ALL do it so we shut it down and embarrass them to make a point.”
A third said it was ‘disgusting’, but had thankfully never had to deal with it, while a fourth added: “Absolutely disgusting and unacceptable behavior! Do you know how dirty planes are? Have you learned nothing from the pandemic? And yes, I’ll stop it!”
