Things You Can't Do on a Plane: Vol. 11

You might think that after Volume 1Volume 2Volume 3Volume 4Volume 5Volume 6Volume 7Volume 8, Volume 9 and Volume 10 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:

  • Accidentally play a pre-recorded message over the plane's intercom system that the plane will need to make an emergency landing on water. Airline crew should not erroneously play a pre-recorded emergency announcement about an imminent emergency water landingCONSEQUENCE: Crew will need to inform 330 panicked passengers of the mistake and apologize for causing them "undue concern."
  • Refuse to sit down in your seat until flight staff bring you champagne and food. Couples traveling together may not jointly refuse to sit down while repeatedly demanding champagne and food. CONSEQUENCE: Couple will be forced to exit plane and airline will alert FBI. 
  • Attempt to board a rival company's plane and review documents. Airline personnel may not try to board a rival airline's plane to "have a look at it" out of "curiosity" and then pick up documents concerning the rival's flight crew. CONSEQUENCE: Curious employee will be fired.
