There are many legitimate reasons for being kicked off of a plane. I think of things like being verbally or physically abusive to others on the flight, trying to self-upgrade to a premium cabin and other things along those lines.
Then there are some questionable or ridiculous reasons for being kicked off of a flight.
Last summer, the Michael W Travels family flew Virgin America at the beginning and end of our five week trip to the Pacific. These will end up being the first and last flights we’ll ever take with the airline.
Lucas and I got home late last night from Pittsburgh. It should’ve been a quick one hour flight.
We were scheduled to fly at 5:50 PM from PIT, getting us into New York’s LaGuardia at 7:14 PM. When we arrived at the gate, it seemed busy but nothing unusual. After standing around for a few minutes, I noticed that the screen said now boarding for a 2:45 flight which was switched to 5:30!
Selma Blair, an actress probably best known for role in the movie Cruel Intentions was taken by stretcher off of her flight returning to L.A. from Cancun. Blair was removed for “allegedly having an outburst on the flight,” according to Yahoo News.
When I fly, I always prefer to sit in an aisle seat. There are a few reasons why the aisle is my choice.
First of all, I don’t want to bother anybody if I need to get up to go to the restroom or get something out of my bag in the overhead bin. I also like that I can stretch my leg into the aisle, even for a few seconds if the space feels a bit tight. The last reason I like the aisle is so that I can quickly get my bag out of the overhead bin upon landing.
