Another Day, Another Asshole On An Airplane - Woman Gets Banned From United, Forces Flight To Divert All Because Of ... Wine

[Post] - United Airlines has temporarily banned a woman from flying with it after she allegedly caused pilots to divert a flight to Los Angeles after an argument with flight attendants about wine.

The woman, who has not been identified, caused a “disruptive” scene on the July 25 flight from Houston when she “refused to follow the flight attendant’s instructions to return to her seat,” United Airlines said in a statement.

The melee caused the LA-bound flight to divert to Phoenix.

United Airlines said the woman was met by law enforcement in Phoenix and removed from the plane, which continued its trip to Los Angeles later in the evening.

“The customer has been barred from future United flights while we review this matter,” the airline said in a statement.

Here we go. Another day, another asshole on a plane. You know what? Banning her from just United flights isn't enough. No fly list would be acceptable. It should be a standard rule. If you cause a plane to divert, land in another city, you're not allowed to fly. You simply can't handle it. We need to put a stop to people doing shit like this. 

Flying isn't easy anymore. Not exactly breaking news there, but it's true. Between all the delays, the amount of people trying to fly, the price, whatever it might be, it's just not the easiest thing in the world. It's also not for everyone. People who think they are special flying isn't a thing anymore. It doesn't matter how rich or poor you are, whatever it might be, the moment you step foot in that airport you're all the same. You're just a person trying to get from point A to point B and if anyone disrupts that, they should be banned for life. 

Of course it's stereotypical wine and Karen comments here too. But clearly this woman can't handle airport wine. There's a fine line when it comes to drinking and flying. You want to have enough that maybe puts you to sleep on the plane, eases any concerns, but you're not disruptive or loud. The majority of us knows that line. We know the exact amount for the perfect amount. This lady apparently has no idea and likely thinks she owns the plane. The worst type of person. 

This is why I hate people who bitch about kids on a plane. Babies don't know what they are doing. This person? Oh this person knows exactly what she's doing. She knows she's making a scene. She knows she's not listening to instructions and just being an asshole. These are the people we should be complaining about more, not a crying baby. Kick her off the plane, ban her from all planes or just make her fly Spirit. It's time we start fighting back at airplane assholes. 

PS: I love the guy screaming sit down at her like a pissed off dad driving his family to a vacation. That one hit close to home.
