Tom Hanks as Sully
Tom Hanks as Sully

Tom Hanks has been barred from all US Domestic Airlines after many passengers raised fears that his very presence will cause a mechanical failure, hijacking or even a crash. Mr Hanks, star of Apollo 13, Sully, Captain Phillips and Cast Away was escorted off a flight from New York to Los Angeles after a number of other passengers started panicking and demanding to be let off the aircraft before takeoff.

The FAA along with their European equivalent EASA take a rigorous approach to safety, however in this instance they have both concluded that Tom Hanks being on a flight does not constitute a safety risk unless his is actively playing a character from one of his movies.

Mr Hank’s assistant David Song spoke to the press regarding “Mr Hanks is an actor, his presence on an aircraft is not a direct threat to public safety, he has only been in one airline crash and it was later determined that he was not at fault.”
