GQ: “Conrad Hilton and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Flight”


Conrad Hilton, the great-grandson of the Conrad Hilton that founded the Hilton chain and Paris Hilton’s brother, severely misbehaved on a British Airways flight from London to Los Angeles and was arrested upon arrival.

Hilton agreed to plead guilty to a one count of simple assault that has maximum sentence of 6 months in the jail (couldn’t find the arraignment details).

The US magazine GQ has good write up of what happened during the flight and it is not behind a paywall. You can access the article here. Below is a short excerpt:

At 2:20 a.m. London time, a second safety briefing is held to discuss restraining Hilton, who is again asleep. Shortly thereafter, crewmembers use a blanket and handcuffs to secure Hilton, who wakes up screaming. Among other things, he says he is a model and the crew is “going to ruin my career.”

P.M.: A buzz went around the plane that he had been restrained and we were all, “Fantastic. Good. Happy about that.”

At about 3:35 a.m. London time [7:35 p.m. Los Angeles time], Flight 269 lands. Police come aboard and escort the handcuffed Hilton to the terminal.

P.M.: I remember coming off and seeing him sitting on a bench with what I assume was some kind of federal agent. You would have thought butter wouldn’t melt in his mouth, he was so cool. He looked all innocent, like, “I don’t know what the fuss is all about.” He just turned it on, like:Okay, I’m on American soil, and I know how to play this game. He looked like he was having the first day at a new job and wanted to make a good impression.


What’s up with these spoiled brats that will never do any work in their lives and living off of trusts funds, behaving like they would be untouchable? It seems that his sister Paris has matured and hasn’t caused any controversies as of late.

I hope that British Airways and maybe other airlines would ban this idiot for life. He can always use private jets burning family’s money.
