The one in the red shirt wet himself... seen his wet shorts?
The drunken kid. Thanks for not allowing them to come on Thai soil. Hope they enjoyed the hospitality of a Balinese police jail!

I hope they will have to pay Jetstar for all the extra costs and be fined seriously as well. So that they will not be able to take a holiday anywhere for the next ten years. Also blacklisting on all the all airlines is a good idea in addition
