Boston Flight Diverted To Kansas City Due To Unruly Passenger

BOSTON (CBS) – A flight from Phoenix to Boston was diverted to Kansas City overnight because of an unruly passenger.

American Airlines Flight 2763 left Phoenix around 6:30 p.m. Eastern time Monday. Passengers say a man who boarded the plane with a woman and two dogs was stumbling and appeared to be intoxicated.

“He was leaning up against where you put the bags overhead and a passenger came by and said ‘What are you going to do, some pull ups?’ and the guy actually grabbed on to it and started doing some pull ups on the plane in front of everybody,” passenger David Markoski told reporters. LINK

I’m all for “keeping it tight” but pull-ups on a plane is a bit much, and before you ask, alcohol was involved.

Woman kicked off plane for bringing her emotional support squirrel

Frontier Airlines thought the idea of an emotional support squirrel was nutty, so they asked the woman who’d brought a bright eyed and bushy tailed companion on board a flight bound for Cleveland to vacate.

She refused, so Frontier made all the other passengers deplane so police could escort human and rodent off the plane. The crowd of deplaned passengers jeered and clapped as she was escorted out of the boarding area. LINK

Just when you think it’s safe someone shows up at the airport with yet another whack-a-doodle emotional support animal. I get it, I’m an emotional support human for my dog, but a squirrel….damn. Besides a squirrel is nothing more than a rat in a cute uniform.

Delta Flight Attendant Suspended for In-Flight Bathroom Sex w/ Porn Star While in Uniform

While it might have been a fun in-flight experience for one Delta flight attendant, he’s now facing possible termination for his uniformed romp with a male porn star inside the aircraft’s bathroom.

Delta executives launched an investigation into the incident earlier this week after video emerged on Twitter and Tumblr of the encounter. According to DailyMail.com, the flight attendant was in his new passport plum uniform with his Delta employee badge fully visible during the 8+ minute videoed encounter.

While the recently hired 20-something attendant was off duty while promoting the airline’s “Keep Climbing” slogan, he faces termination for his behavior according to Delta: LINK

Twitter, the new career killer, just ask Roseanne Barr. It’s rare that I frequent an aircraft bathroom but I have no idea how two people can fit and then manage to pull off an “encounter”.

Beagle Finds Roasted Pig in Luggage at ATL Airport

A US Customs and Border Protection K9 agent sniffed out something suspicious at Atlanta’s Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport (ATL) on Monday.

Hardy the beagle, a CPB Agriculture Detector on the agency’s “Beagle Brigade,” found a whole roasted pig in an Ecuadoran passenger’s checked luggage at ATL. When authorities opened up the bag, they found the head of the roasted pig inside, wrapped up in tin foil, CBP said in a statement. LINK

Take it from someone that’s had their share of airport meals, I know they can be expensive but PYOP (Packing Your Own Pig) is taking cost-cutting to the next level. I hope they gave Hardy a jowl to gnaw on as a reward.

Thank You Florida, we made the cut. Some dark twisted part of me really enjoys Taser and Paper-Spray videos, sadly there isn’t one to accompany the story.

Napping American Airlines baggage handler trapped in cargo hold on flight to Chicago

The employee, who works for American subsidiary Piedmont Airlines at Kansas City International Airport, was working on the ramp for American Flight 363 on Saturday Oct. 27, when he apparently took a nap inside the cargo hold before the flight.

No one noticed him missing, and the plane took off at 5:52 a.m. local time with the worker in the forward cargo hold, airline and law enforcement officials confirmed.

The baggage handler, who has not been identified, wasn’t discovered until the plane landed at O’Hare International Airport and parked at the gate just before 7:30 a.m. local time. LINK

Intoxicated at 5:52 a.m.? Well, you can’t drink all day if you don’t start in the morning. The sad thing is that no one noticed he was missing.
