If a detainee cannot be removed due to their disruptive behaviour they are returned to detention and arrangements are made to remove them as soon as possible with in-flight escorts."
My solution: Sedate them until they reach their destination then if they have any property with them (money, watches, extra clothes) confiscate it to pay for any damage caused.
