Travel to a foreign country.......live by their laws
The article is missing some information, namely, what is the law regarding alcohol that the woman broke?
It may be frowned upon but you can drink alcohol in Dubai...there’s something missing as others have said
I avoid all things Muslim. A friend of mine, F-4, F-14 fighter pilot, thousands of hours as a captain for Continental has nothing good to say about 3rd world pilot competence and that's the pool many of middle east airline pilots come from. Yuck. Don
Not a chance in H*** would I go anywhere like Dubai. tom.
They serve booze on Emirates flights and their are plenty of bars in Dubai. There is something missing here.
Dubai has a very strange set of rules around alcohol.
If you are living in Dubai, you are not allowed to drink alcohol without a license. These are not issued to muslims.
If you are visiting Dubai, the rules are not clear, but this law has been applied as the government decides it needs to in order to deal with unruly tourists.
Though this woman did not drink in the country, she was arrested for public intoxication, also illegal - though it was likely her recording the immigration officials was the reason they were upset, not the alcohol.
It's not an alcohol friendly country at any rate.
I've known a number of singers who have worked in Dubai for 6-24 month stretches. They like the money, but they can all tell horror stories about the conditions— particularly the way Arab men treat foreign women, and all have stories around problems in the hotel bars they typically work in.
Visit, It may be Magnificent ,, but NOT IN THIS LIFE TIME...
There are also bars in the airport serving booze.
There's more to the story.
The woman was delayed due to visa issue, she was recording the questioning on her phone which is illegal there, and the immigration/customs person asked her if she had any alcohol, she answered yes, probably while still recording incriminating herself.
She might have been behaving like an arrogant *****, and the customs/immigration officer could have easily "entrapped" her. Knowing the airline offers complementary wine, with high probability that she accepted.
I'm assuming she thought she could assert her way out of the visa issue but it's a good lesson for all westerners. We accommodate all visitors and immigrants but THEY do not.
So, she's in jail. If a visitor did the same here we'd put them up in a hotel, feed them, give them a manicure/pedicure, give them some money and after they're fed and well rested, fly them home!
It's a nice airline, the rest of the story no doubt has more to do with it than the free glass of wine.
Yeah.....I'm sure that is the entire story.
You don’t need a visa in Dubai for less than 30days in country
Based Arabs. Besides oil and strife, what does that region produce?
There is no way she didn’t know how Arabs view alcohol and treat women. Can people be this dumb?

I though there was something wrong with her visa. Passenger thought it was ok but it was expired. While getting interviewed and told she was going to get sent back, she attempted to film the interview which is prohibited. The airline serves alcohol and it was served over international waters during in flight services.
The Muslims move to America. They enjoy the Freedoms. But they want our Nation destroyed?
Who can reason with these corrupted cult based theologies?
