    Southwest Airlines welcomes checked luggage -- as their entertaining TV ads remind us -- but not always their passengers.

    Just last month, the airline booted Green Day frontman Billie Joe Armstrong off a flight because his pants sagged so low his boxers showed. A few weeks later, actress Leisha Hailey and her girlfriend faced the same fate after kissing (excessively, according to the airline).

    Southwest is not alone. Delta removed a woman after she questioned the pilot's sobriety. Canada Air Jazz did the same to a man with a strong, unpleasant odor.

    Circumstances that can get you a one-way ticket back to the terminal (at least temporarily) are similar from airline to airline and include appearing intoxicated, going barefoot and having, in the words of Delta's Contract of Carriage, a "malodorous condition." And then there are the subjective, vaguely worded rules: when "conduct creates an unreasonable risk of offense or annoyance" (Delta), or wearing clothing that is "lewd, obscene, or patently offensive" (Southwest).
