There are unspoken protocols airborne travelers should inherently understand: don't get plastered prior to boarding and don't use the cabin as your local gym.
Most importantly, don't be a jerk.
A Boston-bound passenger was responsible for diverting American Airlines flight 2763 to Kansas City overnight because of his unruly behavior.
The man was visibly drunk, according to WBZ news channel, when he stumbled onto the plane accompanied by a female passenger and two dogs.
Things soured as the plane departed Phoenix and took to the skies.

At some point during the flight, the wasted jetsetter – whose name hadn't been released – decided to turn the overheard compartment bin into his personal pull up bar.
David Markoski told the CBS affiliate, "He was leaning up against where you put the bags overhead and a passenger came by and said, 'What are you going to do, some pull-ups?'"
"And the guy actually grabbed onto it and started doing some pull-ups on the plane in front of everybody."

The sloshed passenger became belligerent after ordering more drinks.
Flight attendants repeatedly instructed the gym rat to take a seat mid-flight, but he refused.
"He got verbally abusive with her," Markoski told the reporter.
"He started calling her names. Profanity."
Once the flight was forced to land in Kansas City, Missouri, on Monday night, local authorities boarded the aircraft and escorted the inebriated man off the plane.
Markoski noted just how out of sorts the pumped-up passenger was.
"Security came onto the plane to go get him, and he was really not understanding what was going on."
@AshleyRParker @AmericanAir Please tell me there is some type of penalty for the drunk passengers who caused all of this.— janice krehbiel (@janice krehbiel)1537629412.0
Despite others being inconvenienced by the detour, there were no consequences for the offending passenger.
Kansas City FBI told WBZ that no arrests have been made and no charges were filed.
