Airline hands man $1,200 bill for checking his email mid flight

The bill 
By: Tanya Malhotra

A man was surprised to be presented with a huge bill for using the Internet on an airplane.

The man has been charged $1,200 for using the WiFi connection on a flight from London, England, to Singapore.

Jeremy Gutsche, a businessman of Canada, said that he used the Internet mainly for work emails between naps and he did not watch any videos.

He was hit with the bill from Singapore Airlines, after getting off the plane on Wednesday.

He had accumulated an additional $1,142 in charges for going over his 30-megabyte package, which he purchased before boarding the flight.

Gutsche said that the airline’s Internet speed was painfully slow so it would have been impossible for anyone to watch videos during the flight.

He only viewed about 155 pages of emails the entire flight. Sending a 4-megabyte PowerPoint presentation cost him about $100 and about $10 for an email to colleagues.

Singapore Airlines wireless packages are offered on Airbus A380 and Boeing 777-300ER aircraft.

Gutsche said that the cost per megabyte is disclosed when signing up for the service. “I bought the $30 package. I slept most of the flight, so I really never thought I would end up with $1,000 in overage charges,” he said.

A Singapore Airlines spokesperson said that the carrier was following up on the complaint, but declined to say whether the bill would be reduced.

(Scroll down for video) Human rights organizations slammed a police department in Indonesia, for only allowing women who are virgins, on its force.

Young women who join the Jakarta Police, begin their careers with what is called the "two finger test" to assess whether they are virgins.

According to police guidelines, women on the force have to be single and virgin. Human Rights Watch said that the virginity tests leave young women feeling violated.

Several years ago, the chief of police announced that the invasive testing procedures would stop. However, a check on the police website reveals that the tests are still being conducted.

“In addition to medical and physical tests, women who want to be police officers must undergo virginity tests,” the police website states.

8 female police officers told volunteers of the Human Rights watch that they underwent virginity tests several months ago. An 18-year-old woman said that she only learned about the virginity test when she was about to begin the physical exam.

The women reported that they were completely stripped of their clothes for the virginity test.

Despite warnings that it was a scam, the mother of seven children traveled to Tunisia, and married the man.

Now, to further demonstrate their devotion, Jane Makhloufi wants to convert to Islam and begin wearing a hijab.

However, Mohamed has so far been refused a visa in the United Kingdom, on the basis that his wife does not work and will be unable to support him if he fails to find a job.

Instead, Mohamed traveled to Dublin, Ireland, after getting a visa, and has been there the last four months looking for work.

Jane Makhloufi, who gets £70 (about $110) a week in disability benefits, has pleaded her case with the Home Office.

She asked Prime Minister David Cameron, Nick Clegg, and even The Queen, for their support, but so far, without success.

Jane Makhloufi admits that many people think that her husband married her to gain citizenship. However, she said that they are wrong.

She said that she was taken not only by his looks, but how courteous and gentlemanly he was.She said that he had opened the car door for her and took her out for exotic meals on the beach.

After 10 trips to Tunisia, Jane Makhloufi was delighted when he finally proposed marriage, and she immediately accepted.

Now, she sends her new husband money and meets him in Ireland. Some people pointed out that if Jane Makhloufi truly loves her husband, then she should move to his hometown of Tunisia.

A groom informed his bride that he will divorce her immediately after the wedding night, due to her ugly face, which he saw for the first time.

The bride was left broken hearted and their wedding was ruined after the groom saw the bride’s face for the first time during their wedding.

The couple of Medinah, Saudi Arabia, had agreed to marry each other in an arranged marriage, without having met face to face.

However, after the two walked down the aisle and the bride removed her veil for photos, her new husband was shocked by her appearance.

He said: “You are not the woman I imagined. I’m sorry but I divorce you.”

The bride immediately began to cry and guests at the wedding intervened to try to resolve the matter.

However, they were unsuccessful, as the groom was determined that he would not be able to live with her the way she looks.

People on social media sites were upset with the groom’s action.

“He should appreciate that beauty is in the character, and not the face,” one said.

“Unfortunately, many young people today are interested only in appearance and ignore values and morals,” another said.

“He is not man enough to take on his responsibilities. He is totally insensitive,” A. Nass added.

“Nobody forced him to marry her. He should have insisted on seeing her before the engagement, and not wait until the wedding night,” another pointed out.

(Scroll down for video) A mother who fought for custody of her child, was arrested charged and convicted of murder after killing her little son, prosecutors in Utah said.

Second District Judge Thomas L. Kay sentenced 31-year-old Stephanie, to 20 years to life in prison for aggravated murder, and from one to 15 years in prison for obstruction of justice.

He ordered the sentences to be served concurrently as part of a plea agreement.

4-year-old Ethan Stacy was sent from Virginia to live with his biological mother, Stephanie Sloop, and her fiance, 35-year-old Nathan Sloop, because of a family court order.

In just one week, Ethan was severely beaten, burned and overmedicated. When Ethan died, the couple tried to conceal the crime by defacing the body.

Ethan was buried in a shallow grave near Powder Mountain in Weber County. Dog food was sprinkled on top of his grave.

In exchange for pleading guilty, prosecutors agreed to drop charges of intentionally inflicting serious bodily injury to a child and abuse or desecration of a dead human body.

Nathan Sloop pleaded guilty to aggravated murder but mentally ill. By accepting a plea deal, Sloop was spared from the death penalty if he had been convicted by a jury.

(Scroll down for video) A man was arrested, charged and convicted of assault after breaking into a hotel room and beating three sisters with a hammer, prosecutors in the United Kingdom said.

Now, the man who was convicted for breaking into the upscale London hotel room, has been jailed for a minimum of 18 years.

33-year-old Philip Spence of Abbeyfields Close, Harlesden, was sentenced at the Southwark Crown Court. He was sentenced to three life sentences for each count of attempted murder, to run concurrently.

He will serve a minimum of 18 years before he can apply for parole.

Spence admitted to attacking the women during a burglary at the Cumberland Hotel in the early hours of the morning, but had denied trying to kill them.

This was rejected by the jury who convicted him of three counts of attempted murder and one of aggravated burglary. Also sentenced in court was 57-year-old Thomas Efremi of Upper Handa Walk, Islington.

Efremi supplied Spence with the claw hammer, and the two men agreed that Spence would steal from hotel bedrooms and they would share in the proceeds.

Efremi was sentenced to 14 years imprisonment for conspiracy to commit aggravated burglary, and two years and three months for fraud. The sentences will run concurrently.

The court heard that the victims arrived in London from the United Arab Emirates (UAE), for a family holiday. They went sightseeing before returning to the hotel around 5:30 p.m.

At 1:13 a.m., Spence entered the hotel lobby and took the elevator to the fifth floor, before using the stairs to go up to the seventh floor, where the family members were asleep in their shared adjoining rooms.

The door to the corridor of their shared room had been left open to allow a fourth sister to come and go.

Spence entered the room and began rifling through a bag, which woke Khulood, 37, who was in bed with her two daughters, aged nine and 11.

Spence approached her and demanded money, before repeatedly striking her on the head with the claw hammer until she lost consciousness.

Her screams woke her sister Fatima, 31, who tried to stop Spence, but he turned his attention to her, striking her until she too was unconscious.

The third sister, Ohoud, 34, asleep in the adjoining room with her nine-year-old nephew, suffered the most injuries. Ohoud was hit with such force that her skull was split open and she is not expected to recover from her injuries.

She lost part of her brain, and she can no longer speak. One eye was removed. Fatima suffered multiple skull fractures and underwent surgery.

She also suffered damage to her ear, arm and facial nerves. Khulood underwent emergency neurosurgery for multiple skull fractures and had surgery.

She also suffered a fractured arm and underwent surgery to reconstruct facial bones.

The alarm was raised by the fourth sister, who returned to the room to find her sisters gravely injured and nieces and nephew covered in blood.

The emergency services arrived shortly thereafter.

A forensic pathologist concluded that all three women suffered life-threatening injuries, and it was only through prompt medical and surgical treatment that they each survived.

Having left the sisters for dead, Spence stole a suitcase of valuables, which included cash, credit cards, mobile phones, watches and iPads.

He left the hotel and made his way to Efremi. Ten minutes later, Efremi left to use the stolen bank cards to withdraw cash. He went to a number of ATMs and made ten withdrawals totaling 5,000 pounds ($7,827).
