    Interesting, I never realized he was on the LAM.

    He set the fire in the lav, then tried to be a hero by putting it out.

    Could he just have peacefully waited until flight reached the destination, then pulled the emergency slide?

    The was a Compass regional -- not enough good beer to be worth a trip down the slide.

    A fire onboard an aircraft is one of the most dangerous situations a crew can face. Intentionally setting one is just incredibly stupid.

    It appears he might have pulled this stunt TWICE:

    Duh, Retardo, you don't think they're going to notice a pattern when the hero FA puts out a second lavatory fire in 5 weeks? It's not as though planes are just flying all over the skies with lavatory fires.

    maybe so. appears gruntled is actually a word, if you can translate Scots

    May gravels round his blather wrench,
    An' gouts torment him, inch by inch,
    What twists his gruntle wi' a glunch
    O' sour disdain,
    Out owre a glass o' whisky-punch
    Wi' honest men!
