From shoving flight attendants to turning over snack carts or busting up the duty-free shop, famous folks sometimes let air travel frustrations get the best of them.

Leisha Hailey

When a Southwest flight attendant noticed actress and singer Leisha Hailey kissing girlfriend Camila Grey, she approached the couple and allegedly scolded them, saying they “needed to be aware that Southwest Airlines was a family-oriented airline.” Hailey and Grey became upset and unleashed some profane words. They were then escorted off the airplane. In a statement, they later explained: “We want to make it clear we were not making out or creating any kind of spectacle of ourselves, it was one modest kiss. We were simply being affectionate like any normal couple.”

Consequences: Hailey and Grey suggested a Southwest boycott. The airline agreed to work directly with the couple to make amends and apologized for “falling short of their expectation.” Also, the Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLAAD) contacted Southwest (which, awkwardly, is the official airline of GLAAD) to make amends.
