Default Re: Drunk RIM execs handcuffed to seats, force Air Canada to make emergency landi

While Argon seems to have a talent for annoying some folks here, the fact is, that associating RIM with this episode is unfortunately quite valid.
* These were two RIM executives on a business trip to China, not some University of Waterloo engineering interns (not that that would excuse the behavior ).

* RIM can be held liable for any damages caused by their employees while on company business. As this flight was probably filled with business men/women that were seriously impacted (both in time and cost) by the one day flight delay it does indeed reflect back to RIM.

* This incident is yet another data point on the complete lack of discipline at RIM and reinforces the perception (or reality) that this company cannot execute to save its life

RIM's Global 500 customer base invests a lot of money in RIM hardware and software. They want to be confident that this company will be around for the long term. Anecdotes like this do nothing to enhance that confidence.
