    Saw this in the news recently, pretty bad. Unfortunately I think it is the society we now live in and lack of respect for others. A lot of us have to put up with lack of space and other crappy situations flying these days but most of us know how to act and behave. Feel bad for flight attendants having to put up with who knows what these days. I always worry about what kind of nut will be sitting next to me, happy to report have had no crazy people, maybe flights to Aruba help as everyone is in their happy zone

    They announced where the guy worked
    Some executive position. Sure he either got disciplined or terminated
    Both acted worse then spoiled rotten brats.
    Shame on them for their 3 minutes of fame

    The title made me think of a flight crew cutting in front of another jet waiting to take off, and witnessing the copilot of other jet making obscene gestures with the fingers.

    Lack of personal space? Bull. I just flew economy from Chicago to Abu Dhabi, 13 and a half hours (my second leg of three). At the end of the flight, everyone was still just as cordial as when the flight took off. On landing everyone waited for the plane to stop at the gate before getting up and deplaned in a nice, CIVIL and orderly fashion. Most cases of air rage seem to be self entitled millennial's who just won't abide by the rules. It disappoints me that the flight and passengers were delayed two and a half hours and the couple was only charged with disorderly conduct and released. I think if you cause a delay in flight arrival or operations a mandatory 1 month jail sentence will get those dumba$$es attention and folks will think before getting all stupid on a public flight. Thank you, stepping off soapbox now...

    It takes a special kind of idiot to try to use the restroom when the plane is taking off. Some of the other recent incidents are just as idiotic. Remember the guy that stuck a device in the back of a seat to keep that person from reclining? How about the one that refused to turn off his phone? Then you have the drunks and mentally impaired. When you put all these factors together with flight delays, overbooking etc, you are going to have problems. So far, we have not been exposed to anything like this although we were next to a drunk on one flight, but he was a happy drunk..

    We have never had a problem before, but in 2016, I was pushed by two girls who only had carry on luggage trying to get by me as we were lining up to deplane. I just turned around and asked them not to push me, we would all eventually get off and they backed off. Unpleasant to say the least.
