Boisterous Football Fans Affect Flights

May 5, 2010

in Passenger Stories

I was traveling with two of my buddies from JFK to Buffalo for our annual Bills/Jets game on a Saturday night. Being the young males that we are we waited for our flight in one of the terminal sports bars, drinking and watching college football.

As we sat there we befriended two guys drinking next to us that had the same tradition and had been doing this for quite some time. Now we had a good amount of alcohol at the bar, but not enough to be any rowdier than normal.

As we were seated in the back of the plane, these two moron friends of mine start a J-E-T-S chant (P.S. I’m a Bills fan). Now they do this two or three times prior to us taking off and a lot of the plane joined in. About 45 minutes into the flight the drink cart came by and the FA informed us that there was no alcohol aboard this flight. Later to find out after talking to the same guys from the bar, they said they were informed that there were three drunk and boisterous guys in the back of the plane and the captain had cut the entire flight off. WE MADE THE ENTIRE FLIGHT DRY!!!!

On the return flight Monday morning, my one buddy next to me had to expel some, let’s just say, Labbatts beer gas from the weekend, one of which must have so tickled my nostril hairs that it woke me from a dead sleep.
Apparently though I wasn’t the only person on the flight that was similarly affected. As we were leaving the flight a gentleman that had been sitting two rows behind us commented that we needed to lay off the Labbatts next time we go up as he was being blamed by all the rows behind him. So in the matter of three days we had caused one flight to suffer as if it was prohibition and another feel like they were in a cargo plane full of cattle.

It's passengers like this group that have made flying not much different than riding the bus! Thank God, for your fellow passengers, the flight was a short one! Even more thanks that I didn't have to be stuck on that plane with you! A flight isn't a sports bar! Get some class, some respect and don't be a bunch of a-holes next time. I guess that's hard to do if your from New York City?

Oh yeah, and learn to handle your alcohol when you get drunk!

Brent Brenner? Ever have a good time in your life? I'm sure you are the life of the party…..

who said this guy was from NYC? maybe he was from NJ or PA, just coz you fly out of JFK doesn't mean your from NYC haha

besides dont have on NYC, i guess your just upset coz you missed all of the fun when you were younger, and now your stuck watching the game on the sofa, or is the game not upto your standards?

And i think that most people on that flight wouldnt have minded the little cheers, its a lil depressing getting on a plane when there is like no life on it everyone just sitting there bored

live up a little have some fun

No problem with the fun but they must be Long Islanders, not NJ (unless a transplant) or Pa (ditto) and I meant… Lawng Oilindiz… Gotta luv the Gang Green fans… they put the K in Klass! 🙂

You're no different than the screaming babies that everyone bloviates about here. Not everyone shares your obsession with overpaid steroid freaks who play childrens games.

Now go back to being a couch potato sports fan, with your chips and your beer farts, and do your screaming at home.

I give you your prom on this one. Maybe there is still some hope for you….

It is assholes like you and your perpetually adolescent pals that make flying such a drag.

Thanks dude. Because you and your friends are irresponsible and boisterous…the rest of the plane cannot have a pleasant drink during flight.

You inconsiderate a-holes.

Also, some on your flight may have wanted rest….may have been travelling for work, or to a loved one's funeral….but, nope…you guys don't care…it's all about you.

We all need to be civil and understand, we need to be cognizant of others…especially in confined areas like planes….

What an immature, irresponsible bunch of jerks you and your friends are.

I don't think the flight being dry was on them. They chanted, a bunch chanted along, and they were done. No big deal.

As for the beer fart: gross. Beer farts are the worst. But I think we should all be glad he wasn't having beer shits. Beer shits…the reason I never drink the day before a flight.
