When you’re on a plane, you can rest easy knowing that there is no way you’ll get kicked out of the plane if you’re rude to anyone on board.
That’s because if you get kicked, you’ll be sent back to the ground.
The U.S. Transportation Security Administration (TSA) will hold you responsible for a passenger who makes a rude comment or act while you’re boarding the plane.
If the passenger doesn’t comply with the rules of the flight, they will be expelled from the plane and taken to a separate facility, according to a press release from TSA.
The release said that while you may be allowed to take a few pictures and videos during the flight in order to document your experience, you may not record them for your own records or share them with anyone.
“In addition, TSA has determined that a passenger may not verbally or physically confront another passenger on the flight.
In order to ensure that the safety of all passengers and crew members is protected, TSA will provide specific instructions regarding what constitutes a verbal or physical confrontation.
It is recommended that you notify a supervisor prior to departure,” the release reads.
If the passenger is not cooperative with TSA’s instructions, they may be asked to leave the plane, which means they can no longer take pictures or videos of their experience with the flight attendants.
The release also said that the flight attendant will have the right to ask you to leave if the passenger refuses to comply with TSA rules.
According to the TSA, passengers will be allowed up to three flights a day for up to 10 hours each flight, but this will not apply if you make a loud or disruptive noise during the process of boarding.
It’s unclear how the TSA will enforce the rule, but if you are the passenger who gets kicked off a flight, you will be liable for the cost of the ticket, the TSA said.
The airline is offering a $100 reward for information leading to the arrest of the person who kicked you off the plane (and $50 for information that leads to the conviction of the other passenger).
