The level of calm that these pilots possess while they're flying upside down is unbelievable. Pretty sure most of us would pass out under the weight of all that chaos.

So, apparently it takes some serious skill to actually pull off flying this poorly.

Woman Wonders if She's a Jerk For Booking Entire Row For Broken Leg

Flying can be a stressful experience already, and problem flyers can cause some drama. This woman asked the internet if she was wrong to stick to her guns and maintain her dominion over the seats she paid for. If she wasn't injured and hadn't paid for the seats things might be different, but as it stands it seems pretty clear.

This woman got on a flight and proceeded to stir up all kinds of toxic energy. Her blind entitlement and rude behavior to all those around her, resulted in her ultimately being kicked off the flight. On top of that, it sounds like her name was removed from a website referencing where she worked. Interesting.

The Philippine Air Force decided to form the figure "69" to mark their 69th anniversary. Nice, right?

A passenger started recording a sparking wheel during takeoff from Montreal. The whole wheel comes off, but luckily planes are built with redundancy in mind and the thing landed safely soon after. No one was injured, but some pants were probably harmed.

We're talking a flight that charges just around $31K per person. Now THAT is a different level of lavish insanity.

This guy is a complete nightmare. Everyone wants him off the plane like yesterday. He manages to make no sense and be absolutely infuriating at the same time.

Frustrated Flight Attendant Handily Deals with Problem Flyer

If you half-ass some oversized luggage into an overhead bin, bully a flight attendant and then remain totally noncompliant while they try to solve your issue, don't be surprised if they pull a power move on you. Most customers have a some decent idea of how not to be a bad person, but horrible customers will lie to scam companies out of washing machines, and even mistake bystanders for employees. For those having to deal with the customer service life, here are some too-relatable customer service memes.

This arrogant piece of work underestimated the flight attendant's willingness to have her removed from the flight. Astounding to watch how quickly she backtracks, and tries to plead her way out of facing the consequences for her rude actions.

Passenger Ditches His 5 Year Old In Coach, So Dude Teaches Kid Swear Words

It takes a village to teach a kid some good cussin'. After this dad left his 5-year-old kid unsupervised for the duration of a 14-hour flight, the dude actually sitting next to the kid took it upon himself to do some parenting on his behalf. You gotta learn your swear words somehow. We've seen questionable parenting like this mom who wanted to let her kid try the hottest hot sauce or these weird punishments in general.
