The Pugnacious Passenger

May 26, 2009

in Passenger Stories

I made a mistake of taking a red eye flight. Everyone was rude. One lady’s kid had taken my reserved seat and she told me I would have to find somewhere to sit. I called over to the flight attendant and she made the kid move. I thought the lady was going to let me get up and let me sit but she just sat there. So I had to squeeze through and step over all her luggage and kid’s toys on the floor. I hope I broke something and maybe she will learn a lesson.

Later on the same lady was trying to sleep and was getting annoyed with passengers that had their lights on. At first she tried to sleep on the floor but the flight attendants told her no. She argued with them for hours. She had also blocked the aisle to the restroom where nobody could get through. Several times she got up and was running up and down the aisle cursing. Later she vomited and made no attempt to use a doggie bag. It went all over the back of customer’s seats and on the aisle. She called one of the flight attendants and told him to clean it up. He refused and she became argumentative with him.

I know the pilot was informed several times about the situation and I thought they would land the plane and arrest her but the staff just continued to spend all night in a pissing contest with her. I was grateful she had no knife or gun in her hand. I am sure she would have used it.

I'm surprised we didn't read this on the news. Usually people like this are arrested upon landing.

Sorry, I just don't believe this one for a second. The pieces don't fit together. Was she sleeping on your floor? Did you have to pick your feet up? What happened to her kid and the toys? They allowed a parent to be separated for a redeye flight? "Running up and down the aisle cursing?" What? Why? Just random cursing? Running to something? If you're going to make something up, at least make it interesting and coherent.
