Air travel in the 21st century is a challenge for everyone and sometimes stress gets the better of even level headed people bringing out their worst. Here's a look at five times passengers got unruly and got booted from airplanes. 


Sometimes babies cry on airplanes. It's annoying, especially if you're not a fan of kids. But it's also a fact of life. Babies cry. You can muddle through it or create scenes like this. 


It seems like half empty flights are a rarity these days, but when they do happen flight attendants are usually pretty good about letting people spread out. But most require you to wait until the plane is actually airborne. This is where it's important to follow instructions, and this couple did not. 


Joking or even remarking about bombs can get  you in a lot of trouble on an airplane. Ben Stiller found that out the hard way in Meet the Parents. But it's also a bad idea to make jokes about a deadly disease when hysteria about said disease has reached critical mass. 


Airplanes are not bars, nor are they ideal places to express your opinions on world events because you can't help yourself. 


It's always a bad idea to be rude to crew, including flight attendants. This guy found that out the hard way.
