Turbulence may cause anxiety for some passengers, but nothing causes more stress for everyone on the plane more than unruly passengers. Whether they’re causing aircrafts to divert, or delaying takeoffs, nobody likes a person that can’t behave themselves … especially when it’s time to travel. And when it comes to passengers behaving badly, these five individuals truly stand out.
5. The Guy Craving Fellatio
This American Airlines passenger spends more than ten minutes berating a flight attendant, passengers and police before being taken off the plane. What set the man off isn’t revealed in the video, but we’re certain “If you don’t like my sh*t, suck my d*ck!” is not an equally measured response. Neither is “I’m gonna beat your a** muthaf*cka!”
4. The Pee Break
Jwan Curry may have a legitimate complaint with Alaska Airlines, but he definitely expressed it in the wrong way. Curry erupted in a violent outburst during a flight from New York to Los Angeles over being denied entry to the first class cabin bathroom. Curry argued unsuccessfully that the queue in the rear of the plane was too long and that he should have access to the reserved toilets. “You wrong while making seven people wait here to use the bathroom while the whole bathroom up there is empty … we trying to use the bathroom.” Curry’s flight was diverted to Kansas City and the young man was arrested for disorderly conduct.
3. The 420 Club: Sky’s The Limit
This passenger caused an American Airlines flight to divert after exhibiting some rather aggressive behavior. It was one of his final acts though that grabbed international headlines. His flight was traveling from Arizona to Minnesota to when witnesses say the man went into the bathroom and came out extremely agitated. His behavior was so disruptive that the pilot had to divert the plane. After being confronted by staff on the tarmac, the man pulls out a joint and begins smoking. Police escorted the man off the aircraft, but unfortunately, not before he punches another passenger.
2. The Dog Lover
It’s hard enough dodging sleeping passengers when walking down an airplane aisle, just imagine doing it while trying not to step on a dog. One woman was kicked off a United Express flight from Salt Lake City to Chicago after refusing to place her pooch inside its carrier. “I’m not gonna go to jail mister! You’re looking at the wrong lady!” she tells officers just before they yank her out of her seat. The woman’s disruption caused a flight delay for the other passengers.
1. The Fat Shamer
This video is might be one of the most painful things you will ever watch. It involves a woman publicly fat shaming two passengers she’s been forced to sit between. The woman, now identified as New Jersey nurse Norma Rogers, was traveling on January 2, 2019 from Las Vegas to Newark when she auditioned for YouTube infamy. “Oh my goodness, I don’t know how I’m going to do this for the next four hours,” she says while jokingly chatting on her smartphone. “This is just impossible cause they’re squishing me. Like, friggin’ just unbelievable … At least they’ll keep me warm,’ the woman continues.
Passengers on the plane were quick to call the woman out for her language, prompting an “I eat salad” retort.
