Some Of The Many Ways To Get Kicked Off A Plane
Checking in with Law.com's legal blog watch, the list is long.
- Stripping naked or saying the F-word can get you escorted off the plane.
- Get into a fist fight with the passenger in front of you who reclines their seat in the air and the pilot may turn the plane around and return to the airport, escorted by a pair of F-16 fighter jets
- Pretending to be a soldier to get a complimentary upgrade to first class can not only get you kicked off the plane, but result in being arrested. The charge: second-degree impersonation.
- Inhaling from an electronic cigarette or throwing bags of snacks at flight attendants can result in a charge of "interference with the flight crew," a federal offense that will cause the FBI to greet you when the plane lands.
- Take a photo of the name tag of a less-than-helpful flight crew member can get you on the No-Fly list, if not arrested.
- Dress code violations like wearing short denim shorts that make it unclear whether ladies are wearing panties, especially when those shorts are worn with a baggy T-shirt can get you kicked off the plane.
- Breastfeeding and children can be a problem. Breastfeeding without being covered up can result in public humiliation and threats of removal from the plane. In the same folder we find that children must behave. Throwing a fit on the plane may result in a return to the gate and the child's entire family being removed from the plane for the safety of all customers and crew members on board.
- Be careful what you watch on electronic devices. Passengers are not allowed to view what might be deemed "horrific" child pornography on their laptop during the flight. Do so and be apprehended by police upon landing and charged with possession of child pornography.
"You might think that after (21 volumes) of Things You Can't Do on a Plane, that we'd have exhausted the list of things you can't do on a plane," says Legal Blog Watch. "Nope! The list grows daily."
