But now, airlines appear to be experiencing a bit of boozy turbulence, leading some major carriers to discontinue alcohol service until further notice. Food & Wine reports that, as a result of “passengers behaving badly,” both American Airlines and Southwest Airlines have decided not to resume alcoholic beverage service during flights.

Can't blame me for this one. When I fly these days I just bury my head in a book and try to get it over with as quickly as possible.

The key is to be drunk before you get on the plane

New seating ideas that largely amount to, "you only get more legroom if you also put up with more pinkeye:"

Yuck! Those lower seats would have me feeling damn claustrophobic. Def not worth the extra leg room, as you said

As much as it hurts to get my elbow bumped with the drink cart, I can't imagine how bad it would hurt to take one of those to the back of the head.

Increased privacy: The idea is that a passenger would buy an economy seat ticket, and then as an add-on purchase access to CLOUD CAPSULE to enjoy a private space built into the overhead locker area to work, relax, sleep, or jerk off.

horsefeathering YIKES:

https://gizmodo.com/passenger-manages-t ... 1848910795

In a scene that’s reminiscent of the 1980 cult comedy Airplane!, a flight pulling into West Palm Beach this week managed to avoid certain calamity when a passenger with no flying experience took over the controls from the pilot, who was suffering a “medical emergency.”


“I’ve got a serious situation here,” the passenger told controllers, according to audio logs retrieved from a radio tower in Fort Pierce, roughly 70 miles of the aircrafts’ final destination. “My pilot has gone incoherent. I have no idea how to fly the airplane.”

When the air traffic controller asked for the passenger’s position, he responded that he “[has] no idea.”

Eventually, the logs detail that the air traffic controllers managed to locate the craft (it was about 20 miles east of Boca Raton, itself not too far from Palm Beach), and guided the passenger/pilot/hero into a safe descent along the Florida coast. Considering how the tower’s recordings show the man fumbling with the craft’s basic navigation screen, pilots later told the news affiliate that the feat was “absolutely incredible.”

What’s also incredible is that the Palm Beach air traffic controller responsible for guiding the craft safely to land, Robert Morgan of Jupiter, Florida, later told the outlet that he wasn’t even familiar with the craft he was guiding. Instead, he reportedly used a picture of the cockpit from the craft in question—a Cessna Grand Caravan—to piece together instructions for the terrified passenger inside. “Before I knew it, he said, ‘I’m on the ground, how do I turn this thing off?’,” Morgan told the outlet.
