"Hafhel Mohammed Al Humayed admitted one count of being drunk on a plane and
one count of common assault and will be sentenced at Isleworth Crown Court
on March 22.

"He remains in custody until sentencing and could face a prison sentence
before being deported back to the Middle East."

I flew back from Dahran in Saudi Arabia (now King Fahd airport) via
Kuwait some time back. Service between Dahran and Kuwait was excellent.
After Kuwait the cabin crew were at full stretch supplying alcohol to
the mainly Saudi passengers. No sign of alcohol prohibition as soon as
the plane left Arab airspace!!

Only making a factual, rather than political, point. But Emirates serves
alcohol on its flights and at their flyer club in Dubai, which also has
an airline-agnostic pub, and several city centre 5* hotels serve
alcohol. OTOH, a flight I took on Air Egypt back to the UK was dry
codeshare with BMI, iirc).
