    That's crazy-talk.
    Kids who make noise on planes are 80 percent of the time scared/having ear problems/given a free pass. I'm guessing you don't have kids, Bitter One.
    This blathering schmuck using F-Bombs, on the other hand, needs to be warned once then have his ass thrown off the plane.

    Why should there be a warning? If the crew says he was disruptive, that's it.

    And the apology and put on another flight is just policy. Doesn't mean he's telling the truth.

    Sorry, but that's bullshit. He is a customer. Not to mention the fact that it is more disruptive to turn the plane around and pull somebody off than to have one guy use the word "fuck."

    Really kind of all depends. I have my view. You have yours.

    "Don't use that tone with me, mister! I will turn this plane around right now!"

    I had an entire row to myself for a flight, and just before take-off a woman changed seats to be in my row - she said she wanted a better view of the video screen -- and then didn't shut up the entire flight. I put on headphones to watch the movie, and she would tap on my shoulder and then start rambling again.

    The flight was Milan to New York City. Nine freakin' hours I dealt with that.

    So, in your mind, the guy saying "fuck" to himself or somebody next to him is more disruptive than turning the plane around, bringing it back to the gate and having him escorted off?

    That certainly is an...interesting..perspective you have there.

    Many posters to this thread 1.) don't care to use Google 2.) didn't read the linked story

    Also, this story longs for witness accounts of what actually happened.
