Ya know, fighting in commercial planes is getting to be a bit too common.

The news keeps on showing the latest fights caught on cell phone cameras and the thing is, I wonder ... Is this going to become the new normal?

Ha ha lots of jokes making the rounds too about incidents in India. Unfortunate because flying should be a pleasant experience

I think so. Flying should be a joy. I never flew and probably never will.

Things can easily get out of hand endangering everyone on the plane. Some seem to lose all sense of proportion - siva

That is so right. And if this happens on a plane in flight, high up in the stratosphere, well I would not want to be there.

@lookatdesktop I recall one incident which scared me. One passenger had an argument with a flight attendant and claimed the latter was rude to him. He was raising his voice and just lost it - asking us to stand up by way of protest. And we were flying 30,000 ft high. I told others why commit harakiri and for a silly reason. Luckily, very few responded to his callous plea! siva

Flying used to be exciting... now everyone hates it with a passion. If they can find a different way to get from point A to point B... they will take it every time. Even me... and I hate sitting in a car!

But what if it was a Lincoln? of course, nobody likes long rides that take forever. Unless you are floating in a balloon or a blimp. Back in the old days, really old days, people liked floating low and taking their time way up in the clouds from a hot air balloon.

There would not be this situation if airlines treated their customers as customers and not cattle to be pushed around.

They seem to treat them also like potential terrorists on the no fly list.

People seem to be getting more rude when it comes to their jobs.

The thing I notice about the use of cell phone cams is that getting the action on video so they can send it to their social media friends and followers, will only encourage such things. The phones need to be locked up with the rest of the luggage until the flight is over. That way, no publicity and thus, no excessive actions. People tend to act out when they realize that they are on video. Or, conversely, anyone who has common sense, who knows that video capture of their foolish behavior will get them into a liability lawsuit and perhaps they might lose their jobs. For all intents and purposes, cell phone cameras should actually be a deterrent to violent actions in commercial airplanes. Just saying.

I think it is. Just my belief but I think it is because we allow people from a very young age to just feel like they are always right rather than having the "argumnet" with them. Granted some things just don't really matter but do they? We had a young man in my neighborhood recently that thought that he didn't have to listen to anyone. One day he got in trouble and the police showed up to arrest him. When the cop told him he was under arrest I was shocked at the boy's response. "No, I'm not." I just stood there for a minute shocked, what planet do these kids come from that they think that they can just do whatever they want whenever they want and there are no repercussions for their actions. When he finally realized he was in fact under arrest he decided to run (he didn't make it very far). Ultimately, our finest officers showed him he was in fact under arrest and took him away. So yes I think this is the norm, we need to account for it with the young children these days if there is going to be any hope for the future.

I hope I never am a part of something like this.
