Mr Kehoe covered his face with a folder and shouted abuse at waiting journalists as he left the court, before swinging his suitcase at the crowd and lowering his trousers to expose his backside.
I almost felt sorry for the dude, figuring some really urgent need to be on that flight, but then I read on. He really showed everyone what kind of person he really is.

I'd really like to visit New Zealand. Fortunately, with very clever planning it is possible by passenger freight ship! Absolutely no frills.

I hate babies on airplanes.
I used to travel to Florida every month. Had to go to Orlando. When I took Sunday flights it was full of crying babies and kids with smelly feet who liked to fart. Flying out on Monday morning was much better, business travellers, hardly any kids.
WTF do people take babies to those expensive fun fairs? Babies won't remember it, and it can't be worth the money to drag them there. Someone told me it was worth it to watch babies enjoy the entertainment, but babies are so easy to entertain, you can have that joy on the cheap and the baby doesn't know the $$ difference.

I have a sorta personal story of airline douchebaggery, a nephew who turned 30 in July was gifted a 6 days in Las Vegas by his wife. They arrived at Hartsville Airport at 2:00pm for a 4:00pm boarding. First they were told the flight was delayed, then at 6pm they boarded and sat on the tarmac for about an hour before they made them leave the plane to sit back in the airport.

Angry customer galore and Southwest agreed to refund everyone money because they now have cancelled the flight. Nephew talk to the customer service Rep or whatever they're called and they reassured him that they would have a flight back even after refunded the entire amount. They also didn't have any information on whether or not there were other flights available, because it seems Southwest doesn't partner with any other airline.

Fast forward to some point around 4am when they finally got a flight out to LV, they arrived about 6am, and have lost a whole day of their vacation plus not getting any sleep the evening before. But they enjoyed their trip and on the day they were scheduled to leave Nephew calls to make sure they have a flight, and guess what, you're right, they have cancelled that one too. They finally got a flight out of LV and had to fly to Orlando and wait 4 hours before they could fly back to Atlanta.

Perez HIlton was also booked on that flight and he made a video for YouTube about it, tho he wasn't inconvenienced nearly as much as some.

Perez HIlton
I've heard that name for years but who the hell is he really? Flying on Southwest must mean he's so LAST YEAR.
I love Southwest. Never had a problem. Except for farty kids, and that loud obnoxious old man with enormous yellow toenails. But that could happen anywhere.

This guy had a really shitty experience on Delta
Matthew Meehan said he had just boarded the plane to Miami when he noticed feces all over the floor and his seat. When he alerted the crew, he said they did little to nothing to help.
Actual feces, and it was all over me. I sat in it and it was on the seat, on the floor, the seat in front. And I was literally in it," Meehan said.
The Bay City resident spoke with TV5 via FaceTime about the very smelly, disgusting encounter he had on a recent Delta flight from Atlanta to Miami.
He said upon sitting in his seat, he and the passenger next to him quickly discovered they had sat in feces. They both ran to the front of the plane to clean off and were shocked by what the flight attendant handed them.
"I have no idea why I wasn't offered something from the bio hazard kit to clean myself up with. Instead, I was handed two paper towels and one of those miniature bottles of Bombay Sapphire, a bottle of gin to clean myself with," Meehan said.
Meehan said that was just the beginning. After cleaning what he could of the feces from his hands and clothing, he said flight attendants continued to board the plane and told him there was nothing more they could do. He exited the plane to speak with a manager and said this was her response:
"At the very beginning, she sighed, 'What's your problem?' And it was just, you know, I had to step back for a moment and say, alright, keep your composure. You do not want to be one of these people you see on the news getting kicked off a plane. Meanwhile, I'm covered in feces," Meehan said.
Meehan said he and fellow passengers were forced to lay a blanket over the mess and endure the smell for the entire two-hour flight.
Delta Air Lines released the following statement:
"On Nov. 1, an aircraft operating flight 1949 from Atlanta to Miami was boarded before cleaning was completed following an incident from a previous flight with an ill service animal. Delta apologizes to customers impacted by the incident and has reached out to make it right, offering a refund and additional compensation. The safety and health of our customers and employees is our top priority, and we are conducting a full investigation while following up with the right teams to prevent this from happening again. Upon landing in Miami, the aircraft was taken out of service to be deep cleaned and disinfected."

WTF? They didn't have a "spare" plane they could've put into service so this one could be sanitized. Surely, making people sit in shit is some sort of health code violation or something. I don't think I would've been as composed as these victims were.

The Delta stuff is great news for me. I'm spending 10h 15m on a Delta flight from Salt Lake to Paris, followed by 2hr 10m to go from Paris to Budapest for a total of 12h 25m. I'm just looking forward to sitting on a flying cattle car for that long. My return flight the following week is from Munich to Atlanta to Salt Lake. A total of 15hr 22m. Must be a slower plane on the return flight. Almost 28 hours flight time.

https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-6366791/Terrified-passengers-plunge-500ft-18-seconds-Flybe-planes-autopilot-accidentally-turned.html
The terrified crew of a Flybe plane which 'pitched nose down' as it headed to earth 'saw the ground' as they plummeted downwards for eighteen seconds, it has emerged.

Details of the frightening incident in Belfast have now been revealed after the plane plunged 500ft with 44 passengers and four crew onboard.

The Air Accidents Investigation Branch (AAIB) has heard how the autopilot was accidentally set to 'altitude zero' during the flight in January.

[....]
The plane had taken off from Belfast City Airport and climbed to 1,350ft before the accident happened.
That is one of the dumbest and most unnecessary diagrams ever.

[*]He responded, but his insults are mostly inaudible over the woman's shouting
[*]Plane was at LAX but it is not currently known where the aircraft had flown from
[*]The woman was escorted off the flight by personnel, according to the person who posted the video online

According to the person who posted the video, the woman had threatened a flight attendant who had tried to calm her down. The poster added that the woman had been 'accosting other passengers and flight attendants for about an hour' before the video started.
[...]
She got especially angry when the passenger she was arguing with implied her weave was horsehair.
If you watch the video, there is another black man sitting in the middle seat who stoically ignores the whole thing.
I wonder if he was a stranger or her boyfriend?

No one knew. I bet she doesn't know either. She just wanted to fight. She fought with the man sitting near her the most, but she was mean to other passengers too.

Airplane manufacturer douchebaggery.

https://komonews.com/news/nation-world/were-p-sed-pilots-says-boeing-didnt-disclose-737s-new-control-feature
Boeing didn't tell airline pilots about features of a new flight-control system in its 737 MAX that reportedly is a focus of the investigation into last month's deadly crash in Indonesia, according to pilots who fly the jet in the U.S.

Pilots say they were not trained in new features of an anti-stall system in the aircraft that differ from previous models of the popular 737.

The automated system is designed to help pilots avoid raising the plane's nose too high, which can cause the plane to stall. It automatically pushes the nose of the plane down.

But if that nose-down command is triggered by faulty sensor readings — as suspected in the Lion Air crash — pilots can struggle to control the plane, which can go into a dive and perhaps crash, according to a Boeing safety bulletin and safety regulators.

The bulletin included new details on how to stop a runaway series of events from leading to a crash, pilots say.

"It is something we did not have before in any of our training. It wasn't in our books. American didn't have it," said Dennis Tajer, a 737 pilot and spokesman for the pilots union at American Airlines. "Now I have to wonder what else is there?"

The president of the pilots union at Southwest Airlines, Jon Weaks, told The Wall Street Journal, "We're pissed that Boeing didn't tell the companies, and the pilots didn't get notice."
[....]
More than 200 have been delivered to airlines worldwide, including American, Southwest and United.

Southwest spokeswoman Brandy King said the new automated maneuvering system was not included in the operations manual for MAX models. American and United did not immediately respond to requests for comment.

Boeing Chairman and CEO Dennis Muilenburg said Tuesday that the Chicago-based company remains confident the MAX is a safe airplane. He said Boeing did not withhold operating details from airlines and flight crews.

"We ensure that we provide all of the information that is needed to safely fly our airplanes," Muilenburg told Fox Business News. He said Boeing bulletins to airlines and pilots "point them back to existing flight procedures" to handle the kind of sensor problem suspected in last month's crash.

The Federal Aviation Administration issued an emergency directive last week to airlines, telling them to update cockpit manuals to include instructions for how pilots can adjust flight controls under certain conditions.

"The FAA will take further action if findings from the accident investigation warrant," the agency said in a statement Tuesday.

On Oct. 29, Lion Air Flight 610 plunged into the Java Sea shortly after takeoff from Jakarta. All 189 people on board were killed.

John Cox, a former 737 pilot and now a safety consultant to airlines, said Boeing's steps since the crash "have been exactly correct. They have increased pilot awareness, they have reminded them of the proper procedure to disable (the automatic nose-down action), which stops the problem."

Indonesian investigators say that the Lion Air Boeing 737 MAX 8 experienced malfunctions with sensors that indicate the angle of the nose on four recent flights, including the fatal one.

The Wall Street Journal reported that U.S. and Indonesian investigators are increasingly focusing on the way that the plane's automated control systems interact. They are also questioning whether the FAA and Boeing adequately analyzed potential hazards if the systems malfunction and send faulty data to the plane's computers, according to the newspaper.

Shares of Boeing Co. ended Tuesday down $7.52, or 2.1 percent, at $349.51 after falling to $342.04 earlier in the day.

I just believe that, like cars made itn the last several years, they have so many bells and whistles that warn you of stuff that you should be watching out for, that it creates drivers (insert whoever here) who aren't paying as much attention to driving as they should be.

My friends truck grumbles every time she get too close to something, like the drive thru wall at McDonald's, or the bush that's close to the front end of the parking space. Us old folks are not going to rely on that, cause we know that you can't rely totally on stuff like that, but the younger crowd, I'm sure they think why crane your neck to see behind you when you've got a back up camera?

I just think that too much is too much.

It's just beyond belief that Boeing would make a drastic change like this without making sure pilots would be informed! I'm wondering, now, if that's what happened to the Irish flight that spontaneously nose dived bringing it to less than 1,000' before pilots regained control. It certainly sounds like it.

Passenger douchbaggery
This preachy old broad demanded the flight attendants move the passenger next to her because he was a trump supporter.
Her husband pretends he doesnt know her.
Then she pulls out the "we are going home my poor husband's mother's funeral so we have precedence" card.
They are both ejected from the plane.
I wish the husband had said "STFU , let me go in peace . " And left her behind .

https://komonews.com/news/local/forgotten-human-heart-prompts-southwest-flight-to-return-to-seattle
SEATTLE (AP) — Southwest Airlines says a Dallas-bound flight returned to Seattle last weekend because a human heart was left onboard.

The Seattle Times reports that Flight 3606 arrived in Seattle from Sacramento, California. Someone forgot to unload the heart before the plane left for Dallas, and the captain announced over Idaho they were turning back.

It's not clear what the heart was for. Southwest said the "life-critical cargo shipment" was for a hospital and had been sent by a company specializing in shipments. Parts of a heart, such as valves, can be recovered when whole heart transplants aren't feasible.

But no Seattle-area hospitals said they were involved. Organ-procurement organizations in Washington and California said they never use commercial flights for heart transplants.

The flight took off for Dallas after a five-hour delay.

https://www.nbcnews.com/news/us-news/six-passengers-fall-ill-flight-cleveland-tampa-airport-water-fountain-n953696
TAMPA, Fla. — Officials say six passengers fell ill on a Frontier Airlines flight from Cleveland to Tampa.

WFLA-TV reports health officials boarded the plane when it landed at Tampa International Airport on Tuesday afternoon and the sick passengers were removed. Officials say they are being held for observation. The sick passengers were not traveling together.

The remaining passengers were kept on the plane for about an hour after it landed. Those passengers deplaned around 4:30 p.m.

An airport representative says there is a possibility the affected passengers' illnesses were connected to a drinking fountain. The fountains in the Frontier concourse at the airport have been shut down as a safety precaution.
[....]
Frontier said in a statement that cause of the illness remains under investigation.

Tyler Schilhabel was injured in an ATV accident years ago and is disabled from the waist down. According to Schilhabel, he and his wife Courtney were traveling via United Airlines to the Dominican Republic for their honeymoon. Schilhabel says he booked his flights through Costco's travel program, and was scheduled to travel from Los Angeles to the Dominican Republic with a connecting flight in Chicago. The Schilhabel's were also scheduled for the same route coming home.

According to Schilhabel, when they landed, the plane did not have an aisle chair to transport him off the plane. Schilhabel says his wheelchair is too big to fit down the aisle of a plane. Schilhabel says United Airlines also did not have a ramp or elevator to help him off the plane and only had stairs. According to Schilhabel, he had to scoot down the aisle "on his butt" and then had to hop down "step by step" to get to his wheelchair.

Then on the Schilhabel's connecting flight in Chicago after the honeymoon, United Airlines also did not have an aisle chair. This time, Schilhabel says he and his wife had seats in the back of the plane. Schilhabel says he had to "scoot all the way down on my butt."

On one of the flights, one of the flight attendants picked Shilhabel up and carried him down the aisle so he could catch his connecting flight. When 23ABC spoke to Schilhabel, he called the whole experience "humiliating."

Fucking United again. They don't seem to provide much "service" at all. They seem to think if they get you there alive, it's all good.

Health officials say testing shows the water at Cleveland’s airport is safe after six passengers became ill on a Frontier Airlines flight to Florida earlier this week.

The city of Cleveland says results that came back Thursday show no concerns with the airport’s drinking fountains and its water supply.

Officials decided to shut down the drinking fountains and test the water after Frontier reported that the sick passengers might have used one before the flight.

Health officials removed those passengers and held them for observation after their plane landed Tuesday at Tampa International Airport.

Authorities haven’t provided information on the symptoms passengers were experiencing or their conditions.

[....]
The family, from Alcester, Warwickshire, had paid £1,300 and were flying from Mahon in Menorca to Birmingham with TUI airlines.
[....]
Paula Taylor told the show that she, her husband and 10-year-old daughter had got to the airport early, in June, to make sure they were seated together.

Their seat numbers were 41 D, E and F. But when they got on the plane there was an empty space underneath the numbers.

"We all just looked at each other as if to say 'where's our seats gone?'," Mrs Taylor said.

Once all the passengers had boarded there was just one seat left. Mrs Taylor's daughter Brooke was given that seat while she and her husband were given flip-up seats in the crew section.

But once the flight had taken off, crew were busy serving food and other items stored behind those seats and Mr and Mrs Taylor had to go and sit on the floor, in the space their seats should have been. They were joined by Brooke as she did not want to sit alone.

The family say they were thanked by the plane crew for their understanding.

But Mrs Taylor says she was given short shrift when she raised the matter with TUI and was eventually offered a goodwill gesture of £30.

After the family contacted Rip Off Britain, TUI refunded their fares and said a "last-minute aircraft change" meant the family's assigned seats were unavailable, as the alternative aircraft had a different seating configuration.

It said it was "sorry for the way the situation was initially handled" and will contact the family directly to apologise.

The company has been contacted for further comment by BBC Online.

The Civil Aviation Authority says while passengers are allowed to sit in crew seats under certain conditions, they must not be left unseated during any stage of the flight.

It told Rip-Off Britain it would be contacting TUI for an explanation.
