Does anyone else think that this isn't coincidence? This all comes shortly after the United episode which unfortunately taught the American public two things:

1. That airlines are evil and should be hated
2. That you can get away with misbehaving on a plane

That's what I think the general public got out of that whole episode. Since then we've had passengers fighting on planes (Southwest), the Sprint fiasco, a passenger threatening to kick a FA's ass on an American flight, a couple of newlyweds trying to score a free upgrade and then getting media attention when removed from the plane and the Delta family who thought they could score a free seat for their car seat

I was on a flight this morning and three girls behind me were obnoxiously loud and a FA had to tell them to keep it down. When the FA left, I heard one of the girls say that, "we'll just video it if she comes back" and they continued to be loud for the remainder of the flight.

And this is EXACTLY what posting all of this crap on Social Media is causing. I can understand why FA's might want to smack some of these people.

Heck! I want to smack these people and I don't even work in the industry.....very tired of the lack of civility. Our society has becoming very combative in behavior.

What a perfect example! The FA should have given them another warning, then the purser the third warning. The captain should have radioed ahead, the girls should have been met on the jetway and detained for questioning. As a passenger, you are required to follow crew instructions. If you don't, you should be punished. A few of these little instances and we might see some sanity restored to flights.

Agree because at the very least, the airline could take away their flying privileges and maybe other people would think twice about behaving badly so as to not get banned from the airline.
If airlines stopped letting these obnoxious passengers fly maybe civility would return to the airways.
Case I point, United could have paid off the Doc who wouldn't leave the plane and then not allow him to fly again.
