Travel news from Fox: BANGOR, Maine — A British woman allegedly had an in-flight meal of prescription drugs, wine and liquid soap — before trying to bite the crew of a London-bound jetliner. Galina Rusanova punched and kicked flight attendants on the Chicago-based United Airlines flight after downing two or three bottles of wine, prescription drugs and liquid soap from the jet's lavatory, prosecutors said. As the scuffle escalated, Rusanova snapped "like a dog" while trying to bite an attendant, prosecutors said.
What is she griping about? Prescription drugs, wine and liquid soap - on today's airlines that's a first-class meal.

ROME (AP) -- Facing a divorce threat, Premier Silvio Berlusconi was quoted Monday as saying he doesn't know if he wants to patch up his marriage and demanding a public apology from his wife.

They have been together since 1980, married in 1990 and have three children in their twenties, but have lived separate lives for many years.
