    Having been to Amarillo several times, I don't think that's where he wants to be arraigned on charges of screaming obscenities to such extent that they had to call an emergency landing. A lot of very conservative people there.

    The terminal really isn't that bad! And upgrades are a cinch.

    It'd be interesting to hear what the cause was of the freak out. Hope someone posts follow-up news about this incident.

    I guess they freaked out when they heard about WN's new fare sales cost structure perhaps?

    I love the quote from the economy class tough guy..."All of us guys were looking at him like are we going to have to do something." :rolleyes: Remind me never to knee the back of THAT guy's seat.

    Maybe his anger of LAX's T1 queues stretching to curbside carried over on board. :rolleyes:

    I can think of at least one natural cause for this, Tourette's syndrome.

    There could be many reasons:
    - he was a person of size and was told to pay for a second seat
    - he was starving and the last bag of peanuts was just given to the passenger next to him
    - he distinctly asked for a diet coke and was given a regular coke.

    Looking forward to hearing about what caused this passenger to blow up.
