Paris Hilton's brother 'threatened to kill' BA crew

Paris Hilton's younger brother Conrad has appeared in court after allegedly threatening to kill British Airways' crew members on a flight from London.

Hilton was allegedly in a temper for most of the flight to Los Angeles, pacing the aisles and calling other passengers 'f***ing peasants'.

The great-grandson of the Hilton Hotel's founder, also called Conrad Hilton, accused one passenger of 'giving him a stink-eye', before threatening to kill and bury a member of the cabin crew.

He allegedly grabbed a flight attendant by the shirt and said: "I could get you all fired in five minutes. I know your boss. My father will pay this out, he has done it before. Dad paid $300,000 last time."

Hilton was allegedly upset following his breakup with a girlfriend. Court documents state that his behaviour frightened passengers on Flight 269 to LA on July 31 last year, even causing a child to cry. Cabin crew restrained him after he fell asleep.

Appearing in court in LA in shackles, he was charged with interfering with flight crew. If found guilty, he could face up to 20 years in prison,  but he has yet to enter a plea. He was released on bail of £65,000.

  • Repulsive behavior

    Threatening to kill... Grabbing a uniform crew member... Degrading passengers... And somehow we find this acceptable because he is a "Hilton". If anyone else acted this way, they would be forcibly restrained (not when he fell asleep), and in all likelihood the plane diverted and a much higher fine imposed. Permitting these types of rants because of social status, wealth, or "breakups" is intolerable and I suggest BA and their One World partners pursue this case with absolute vigor and at the very least ban him from future flights.

  • Spoiled brat

    Does this kid think that just because his last name is Hilton, he can do whatever he wants? The best thing would be for his daddy to not "pay this out" or if he tries, for the courts to say not this time. The brat should spend some time in jail.

  • Sad

    Isn't it sad that these gilded youths can't use their good fortune and free time to the benefit of less fortunate people. They know the price of everything but the value of nothing.

  • retribution for BA's disgusting seat

    Don't you just love it when someone makes an a..... of themselves? Or does it show that they're just human?
