Airline Passenger Attacks Snoring Seatmate With a Pen

By  | 

The battle in the skies is escalating (sorta). Earlier this week I wrote about the New York Times article on passengers squatting better seats and insisting people switch with them. Now snorers are being “attacked.”

CNN reports that a passenger was removed from a Chicago-based Southwest Airlines flight headed to Manchester, New Hampshire after she jabbed her seatmate in the arm with a pen, supposedly to stop him snoring. The pilot returned the plane to the gate and the woman was removed.
