Things You Can't Do on a Plane: Vol. 10

You might think that after Volume 1Volume 2Volume 3Volume 4Volume 5Volume 6Volume 7Volume 8 and Volume 9 of Things You Can't Do on a Plane, that we'd have exhausted the list of things you can't do on a plane. Nope! The list grows daily.

Here are three more things I've recently learned that you cannot do on a plane:

  • Resort to vigilante justice when a sick passenger coughs repeatedly during a flight. Passengers may not harass a sick and coughing passenger throughout a flight and then, while deplaning, body-slam the sick passenger against a wallCONSEQUENCE: Passenger will be arrested and charged with misdemeanor battery. 
  • Have an infant sit in the lap of a 3-year-old passenger.  Parents with four children (a 3-year-old child as well as three other babies under the age of 2) cannot purchase three tickets and plan to have the 3-year old hold one of the babies during the flight. CONSEQUENCE: Family will be kicked off flight, may receive a refund on tickets.
  • Attempt to carry on board a suitcase containing 247 live animals including poisonous snakes. Passengers may not carry on a bag containing more than 200 reptiles and mollusks, including nine species of poisonous snakes such as South American pitvipers. CONSEQUENCE: Passenger will be charged with attempted smuggling and face up to 10 years in prison if convicted.
