A holiday jet pilot(飞行员)said that he would land and call the police after a woman refused to stop smoking. He WARNED Maureen Harkavy, ―Put that cigarette(香烟)out ,or I‘ll land the plane and have you arrested(逮捕)‖
Maureen, 47, was so shocked she wrote to airline‘s chairman.

(b) ―I‘ve never seen such an unpleasant letter,‖ she said, ―I don‘t think I‘ll ever fly again.‖ But there was a funny side. Maureen explained, ―We were offered duty – free(免税的)cigarette from the stewardess on the plane!‖ (c) Mr Ferriday went on, ―Believe me, you haven‘t Especially when you travel on my planes.‖ Maureen and her husband Michael were moved to paramount flight just before they left Portugal. But they were not told of the company‘s no smoking policy. (d) ―He was loud and rude,‖ said Maureen. ―He said if I lit another cigarette he would land the plane at Bordeaux and hand me to the French police.‖ Later, from her home in Mosely, Birmingham, Maureen wrote to company and received the rude reply.
