‘I Will Always Love You’ Singer Escorted Off PlaneBy: Sean Patterson - May 15, 2013
Plane flights can be hard. Given how crowded flights are, and how there is no way to escape from them after takeoff, passengers generally have to rely on each other to act civil and be polite. Though the worst most of us can expect is a crying infant, one recent flight found that terrible singing can sometimes be worse.
In a new viral video making its way around the internet, a woman can be seen being escorted off the plane while singing “I Will Always Love You,” the song made famous by Whitney Houston as part of the soundtrack to the movie The Bodyguard. The woman definitely does not have Whitney Houston’s pipes, though even the famous singer probably wouldn’t be welcome for more than an encore on a long plane flight:
Though Flight attendants during the video can also be heard telling passengers that they are not allowed to take pictures on the plane, there is no official photography ban for airplanes in the U.S. The U.S. FCC does, however, explicitly ban cell phone use during flights. Airlines are allowed to make exceptions for devices, but American Airlines’ current policy is to ban cell phone use on flights:
You may use your cell phone, laptop computer, two-way pager, and PDA until the aircraft door is closed; however, use of cell phones is not allowed during flight per Federal Communication Commission rules.
