Outrageous Reasons Why People Have Been Kicked Off Airplanes
Security at airports is tighter than ever before. Passengers are being scrutinized for disorderly conduct, the definition of which is sometimes open to interpretation. Precise data about incidents isn’t recorded, but suspicious travelers and victimized passengers have social media and smartphones at their disposal to record and document some odd and bizarre occurrences. “In my experience, most people that manage to set off their personal ‘ejection seat’ from an aircraft usually do so by starting their vacation full-force on take-off,” Lia Volpe, flight attendant and owner of Flight Attendant Prep Academy, says. People can be quite unreasonable while traveling. After all, overcrowded conditions, altitude, waiting for what may seem forever even though the plane is right outside the window, can enrage even the most patient passengers.
