10. Commit a Fashion Crime

Most people dress pretty comfortably for air travel, so you wouldn’t expect airlines to have high fashion standards, but apparently JetBlue does. They stopped a woman from boarding because of her short shorts, thinking she wasn’t wearing pants or underwear. When the woman showed that she was indeed wearing both, she was still left grounded.

Better to just schlep around in sweatpants like everyone else.

9. Serenade the Passengers With Your Favorite ‘90s Jam

Unless you’re flying with the other members of your barbershop quartet, nobody wants to hear you sing on an airplane. It could even get you thrown off one if you sound anything like the woman who was kicked off an American Airlines flight because she wouldn’t stop singing Whitney Houston’s I Will Always Love You. The plane landed in Kansas City and she was removed, still defiantly belting the ‘90s ballad.

Most crew members are good about maintaining a constant level of fake, almost eerie cheerfulness. But push the wrong person too far and you could find yourself stranded like one Memphis mom who flew on Frontier. Unhappy about having to remove her infant son from his carrier, she sarcastically referred to a stewardess as “Queen of this airplane.” The so-called Queen was not impressed and swiftly kicked the peasant woman from the aircraft.

Hopping aboard a transcontinental flight on route to a new, ready-to-explore destination is a rush. Traveling teaches us about the world, sure. But, more than that, it teaches us about ourselves.
