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."


Who was this guy? Twitter had some ideas.




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."


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.



The flight reached its final destination at Logan Airport in Boston at 1 a.m., 90 minutes after the scheduled arrival time.

TRIGGER WARNING: This article contains sensitive content about depression and mental health.

As the stigma around mental health lessens (however slowly), people are more forthcoming about the problems they are facing. One of the most common mental health issues is depression.

Depression can affect many different types of people. Factors such as gender, race, nationality, and even age have no bearing on whether someone suffers from depression or not.

According to the World Health Organization (WHO), globally, "...an estimated 3.8% of the population affected, including 5.0% among adults and 5.7% among adults older than 60 years..."

Depression displays in certain patterns, such as mood changes, physical difficulties, and social isolation. However, depression manifests differently in different people and feels different to different people.

Reddit users divulged what depression felt like to them when Redditor iodineseaspray asked:

"What does depression feel like to you?"

Some of this is sure to sound familiar.
