The 29-year-old was described as being “slightly intoxicated” by friend and fellow pro golfer Ian Poulter, who said he attempted to calm Olesen down before eventually falling asleep.

“He started abusing some of the passengers and crew and then made a pass at one of the female passengers before taking a leak in the aisle,” a witness told The Sun, referring to Olesen. “It was shocking behavior. You would expect it maybe on a budget airline but not in the first-class cabin on [British Airways].”

Olesen was met by Metropolitan Police at London Heathrow Airport Monday and arrested on charges of suspicion of sexual assault, being intoxicated aboard an aircraft and failing to comply with cabin crew orders.

He was later “released under investigation,” authorities confirmed.

“This sort of behavior will not be tolerated and the appropriate action will always be taken,” British Airways said in a statement.

Olesen finished 27th at the WGC-FedEx St. Jude Invitational in Memphis last weekend and tweeted out that he was disappointed before boarding his flight home to London.

Delta Air Lines Upgrades Health, Safety Guidelines

Published

on

As travel restrictions are lifted, Delta Air Lines has implemented a series of health protocols to keep passengers safe as they fly again during the coronavirus outbreak and moving forward.

From the time customers check-in for their flights until they collect their bags at the final destination, Delta officials claim the company’s main focus has shifted to the health and safety of passengers.

In the airport, travelers will notice check-in lobbies, self-service kiosks, gate counters and baggage claim are thoroughly wiped down throughout the day, while electrostatic spraying will take place in the planes and throughout terminals.

In addition, Delta continues to install plexiglass shields at check-in counters, in Delta Sky Clubs and at gate counters throughout the United States. Social distance markers will also be added at all of the airports served by the airline.

Hand sanitizer stations will also become easily accessible throughout the facilities.

“The (travel) experience is a very comfortable, a very safe experience, we have taken actions, even above and beyond what the CDC has recommended to ensure safety,” Delta Chief Customer Experience Officer Bill Lentsch said in a statement.

As for the actual onboard experience, Delta is now boarding passengers back to front and limiting it to 10 customers at a time to minimize your contact with others. The carrier is also blocking middle seats, adjusting capacity numbers and requiring face coverings.

Before passengers board the planes, cleaning crews complete an extensive checklist of procedures using high-grade disinfectant to wipe down personal and common areas of the cabin.

Delta also temporarily streamlined food and beverage offerings to reduce touchpoints, with snack bags given out during the first pass through the cabin by flight attendants.
