Krzysztof Moczulski, spokesperson for Star Alliance member LOT Polish Airlines, explained on Twitter how a passenger can get banned by an airline,
How do I get blacklisted by an airline and never fly with that airline?
– get drunk
– take off your panties and pants in the buffet,
– pee on the inside door of the plane
– be blacklisted
Moczulski adds, “P.S. I didn’t believe I’d ever write a piece like this.”
Jak trafić na czarną listę przewoźnika lotniczego i nigdy nie polecieć daną linią?
– upij się,
– zdejmij majtki i spodnie w bufecie,
– wysikaj się na wewnętrzne drzwi samolotu
– zostań wpisany na czarną listę#noprofit

Something seems a bit lost in the translation from Polish to English, but a LOT Polish passenger on board New York JFK – Warsaw service did, in fact, get drunk and get banned.
[T]he incident occurred at the end of last week on the New York – Warsaw route. A middle-aged man started a fight on board the Dreamliner about an hour and a half before landing at Chopin Airport, i.e. during the landing procedure.
The man was reassured by other passengers and his behavior did not disturb the flight. Despite this, it was decided that he would never use the services of LOT again.
This comes after one passenger and then another urinated on women in business class on Air India. It’s also happened on American and JetBlue and easyJet and United.
When noting these incidents, I like to draw lessons – either for how to behave as a passenger, how to manage the behavior of others, or what airlines might do to improve the overall experience.
In the 1994 film Speechless Michael Keaton tells Geena Davis about the importance of a “You see, Timmy.”
At the end of every Lassie, Timmy’s mom would say to him, “You see, Timmy…”
– She’d teach him a lesson.
It was always hopeful, always had heart. That’s what his voters are waiting for.
At the end of each episode of Son of the Beach, Timothy Stack’s Notch Johnson would repeat the formula, only winding up with non-sequiturs (“Oh, hi teens. Notch Johnson here. Tonight’s show
Here non-sequiturs are the best I’ve got. Besides, maybe, don’t do this as a passenger? You see, Timmy…
