Gee, what's with AA passengers these days??? Addiditve in the soda???
Fair use extract:
MIAMI -- Authorities said a fight broke out on board a flight arriving at Miami International Airport on Wednesday morning.
American Airlines Flight 918 was en route to Miami from Lima, Peru, when, according to the Federal Bureau of Investigation, a 56-year-old Japanese man and a 20-year-old man got into an altercation.
The FBI said that about two hours before the flight was scheduled to land, the Japanese man elbowed the passenger sitting next to him. Federal authorities said the Japanese man didn't think the passenger should be using an iPod in flight and complained that he smelled. He then poured perfume on the man, poured water on himself and vomited in the aisle, authorities said.

Yet one more reason for an industry-wide, shared "do not allow to fly" list.
First time someone has to take a cruise ship across the ocean, or Greyhound from NYC-LAX to attend a business meeting, or family reunion... they might wish they hadn't gotten drunk, punched someone, tried to open the exit, etc.
I think just knowing such a list existed would make people think.

It's not that rare. Especially in 1st/biz classes where they bring the booze around a lot. Some people just don't realize that drinking at altitude makes you drunker/sicker and they see the open bar as their free ticket. Personally got puked on by a Swedish lady on IB from MAD>JNB because they wouldn't cut her off. Reaally nasty. That stench just doesn't come out.
Could you imagine watching someone vomit in the aisle on a flight? I can't think of something that would freak me out more!
Except the pax next to you puking on you. Had someone puke into the aisle about three weeks ago on AS PHX-PDX. THAT was the carny flight from hell. Had a 90 year old woman in 1B babbling at full shout about her new TV from Wal-Mart and her 'apartment'. Poor seatmate feigned sleep but it didn't stop her. Then the guy behind me in 3E blew chunks from his seat into the aisle.
The FA didn't miss a beat and was awesome about everything... (nicely) made the pax clean up after himself "Sorry, I have to handle food, I can't help you clean that..." (as if she should've been EXPECTED TO!) and handed out $25 courtesy certs to everyone affected in the cabin.

HAHAHAH that reminds me of the smelly african man that was sitting behind me for 19 hours on my flight from IAD-JNB. I was about to hand him my stick of deodorant!
Incidentally, I fly the Miami-Lima route all the time since my family is Peruvian. My aunt was actually coming back on the flight this incident occured. She just said that the Japanese man was being very loud and after he vomited, some of the passengers sitting around him stood up to go towards the galley while the flight attendants cleaned up. Those stuck up Peruvian based AA flight attendants were probably pissed, they don't put up with sh** from anyone! (although I have to say their service is excellent!)

If we are going to talk grossness, when I was a United flight attendant, I'll never forget working a DC-10-10 on ORD-LAS. We hit continuous moderate turbulence all the way down from about 25,000 feet. I was sitting at 1R, but was cleaning up the coach galley when we hit the turbulence. I managed to crawl to an open seat in one of the last rows of coach, but many of my flying partners landed on their hands and knees in the galley.
And then.....everyone started to get sick. During deplaning, I was literally pulling my rollerboard through vomit in the aisle. I didn't know if I was going to make it to the terminal bathroom I was so ill. The most humorous moment was when the most glamorous and coiffed woman on the crew lost it in the little rail tram that takes you from the airside to the main terminal. She motioned to everyone to stand back as it happened! We had a 20 hour layover and I spend most of it in bed.
Anyway - good luck to everyone still out there - especially who worked AA65 or AA918. It just gets crazier....

Quoting BWI757 (Thread starter): the Japanese man elbowed the passenger sitting next to him. Federal authorities said the Japanese man didn't think the passenger should be using an iPod in flight and complained that he smelled. He then poured perfume on the man, poured water on himself and vomited in the aisle, authorities said.
Is it just me or does this sound like another skit from Jackass the Movie?
