Plus, misbehaving and vandalizing passengers are always prosecuted and punished, which I doubt won't happen in the case of Biman. They could easily identify the passenger according to the manifest and prosecute/punish him but I doubt BG officials would be bothered much by it.
Nowadays both west (Europe, North america) and east (Singapore, South Korea, Japan etc.) are developed; so we are the only ones left in the middle along with Africa that needs to make significant progress in human development.

As for airplane passenger misbehavior, outside of lack of strict prosecution, the issue is the type of people flying in the planes. Majority of them are workers/ laborers from rural areas, who don't have much civic sense. One will see huge difference between Bangladeshis flying back from US, Canada versus Dubai or Qatar. As the country develops, the general education level, standard of living and thus social sense will also improve. Maybe 20-30 years down the line, this problem will no longer exist.

BG isn't dry, is it? I think the choices are limited.
I remember the last time I took BG, loads of people around me were frantically saying their prayers while the flight was taking off. But majority of them chose beers over soft drinks when the stewardesses came to offer drinks.

Are you sure? Several westerners who reviewed BG flights as well as Sam Chui, mentions it is a dry airline. On their videos, I've never seen any kind of alcoholic beverages being offered.

Been flying with Biman on my last 3 trips to Bangladesh, but never seen anyone having alcoholic beverages. Might be the odd ones but doubt it's the majority.

I believe alcohol is limited to business class and even there the selection is rather low and is only given upon request; but might be mistaken.

Biman doesn't even agree - unlike EgyptAir for instance - to 'serve' alcohol already being carried by pax.

According to news reports, the new e-Passports are gonna launch on 22nd January. While that is nice, apparently it's gonna take ages until Bangladeshis abroad can apply for it through Bangladeshi missions abroad...
