    Fliers come to fisticuffs over reclined seat:rolleyes:

    Three separate recent incidents of air rage could be indicative of rising levels of frustration among airline passengers.

    In one incident, a man was arrested yesterday morning "on charges of slapping a flight attendant on a JetBlue plane bound from Florida to Boston's Logan International Airport," according to the Boston Globe.

    According to the Globe article, a flight attendant ordered the passenger to move his bag beneath his seat before the plane took off. A Globe reporter, who on the airplane, said it appeared the passenger attempted to comply, but the flight attendant wasn't satisfied.

    "There was no apparent commotion during the three-hour flight," according to the Globe account, but the flight crew had the passenger escorted off the plane when they arrived three hours later in Boston.

    ANYONE hitting another on a plane for crap like these should be banned from flying on all airlines for a period of time to learn their lesson(s).

    Another story as well on AA yesterday to Ghana on two people brawling over a reclining seat.

    Absolute idiots.
