Exclusive: "Linklaters lawyer" in air-rage rant

A passenger who was splashed all over the Daily Mail after fighting over an arm rest on a flight has claimed to be a lawyer at Linklaters.

Another passenger on the Monarch Airlines flight from Gatwick to Malaga filmed the fracas, in which a man and a woman verbally knock seven bells out of each other whilst crew members try to calm them down. The man refuses to move, saying that "the woman is obnoxious and rude, I'm not going anywhere". The woman retorts that "he just punched me with his elbow" and "I am a lawyer at Linklaters and I will sue you guys".

It seems unlikely that someone woud make this up. Although maybe Linklaters' branding is such that it is the go-to fictional employer of any passing nut job who wants to impress.

Linklaters was unaware of the incident and is looking into it. If this lady really is at the firm she should be feeling pretty nervous.


This follows hot on the heels of a Linklaters' associate helping British Transport Police with their enquiries after being filmed in an altercation with a passenger on a train. Is the firm doping its water coolers with steroids?
