Things You Can't Do on a Plane: Vol. 16

You might think that after Volume 1Volume 2Volume 3Volume 4Volume 5Volume 6Volume 7Volume 8, Volume 9Volume 10Volume 11Volume 12Volume 13Volume 14 and Volume 15 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:

  • Bring a commercial grade M-80 explosive onboard the plane in your backpack. Passengers may not carry powerful fireworks onto a cross-country flight. CONSEQUENCE: Passenger will be arrested and face federal charges including "possession of a destructive device."
  • Attack flight crew after being refused alcohol. Passengers with a fear of flying who are refused alcohol may not express their emotions by getting out of their seat, attacking the flight crew, kicking them, spitting in their faces, knocking a flight attendant to the ground and breaking an arm rest. CONSEQUENCE: Passenger will be tackled, restrained, greeted by police upon landing and charged with "Interfering with an Aircraft" and Battery.
  • Scream about terrorism plots and claim that the plane is "going down" while serving as captain of the plane. Captains of aircrafts may not begin screaming mid-flight about al-Qaida, the presence of a bomb on the plane, Iraq, Iran and how "we're all going down." CONSEQUENCECaptain may be restrained, choked, taken down by passengers and charged with "interfering with a flight crew."
