  1. The passenger is a 24yo woman. How hard could she slap? The crybaby flight attendant is a pussy for pressing charges. I’m not saying he deserved to be slapped; I’m saying he’s a pussy.

  2. The woman deserves some time behind bars, but 21 years does seem incredibly extreme. Airlines colluding on a non-governmental no fly list would cut down on the number of many types of incidents.

  3. IS FACING, not IS SENTENCED TO. BIG difference, I am sure she will get months, or maybe a year.

  4. I confessed I have felt like slapping a United Airlines employee or two in my day. But that would be WRONG…and so is flying on United Airlines. I quit UA in 2013. All good now. No slapping.

  5. They make one Bloody Mary and leave the cart in your room? Do they throw out all the vegetables afterwards? I don’t want any of those food items after they sat all day in someone’s room.

  6. Seams a little harsh to me, I mean yes there should be no hitting anyone, but what about when they dragged a flyer off the plane, should that person have the same fate
