Things You Can't Do on a Plane: Vol. 15

You might think that after Volume 1Volume 2Volume 3Volume 4Volume 5Volume 6Volume 7Volume 8, Volume 9Volume 10Volume 11Volume 12Volume 13 and Volume 14 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:

  • Have a child throwing a tantrum. There will be no tantrums by children onboard a flight, specifically including children who resist sitting in their seat. CONSEQUENCE: The plane will return to the gate and the child's entire family will be removed from the plane "for the safety of all customers and crewmembers on board."
  • Pet the penguins. Passengers may not pet any penguins that may be waddling throughout the cabin on their way to the New York premiere of "Frozen Planet," a new Discovery Channel documentary series. CONSEQUENCE: No real consequence, just don't pet the penguins, OK?
  • Kick women off of flights for breastfeeding. Airlines may not order breastfeeding women to leave the plane if they refuse to cover themselves with an airline blanket. CONSEQUENCECivil lawsuit against the airline with an "undisclosed" settlement for the woman kicked off of the plane.
