    "How do you know Iím mad?" said Alice.

    I think calling the cops in was a bit heavy handed. But he shouldnt have been vaping on a plane, especially after being asked to stop. Incidents like this don't help things at all.

    If it stops other idiots from doing the same then calling the cops was a good thing.

    Take a look at the list of reports on battery fires on planes here:
    The Aviation Herald

    It is common, but it's usually a phone so not newsworthy.

    Prolly true but - the question about can I take my mod on the plane is surprisingly common - so the information is still useful imho and worth posting so people know - esp relevant for countries who have harsh penalties for what might be considered small infractions
