Some travelers think the whole world should cater to their needs when they fly.
And for Alexander Tung Cuu Le, when he wanted to use the first-class restroom on the plane – he refused to take “no” for an answer.
So in a fit of rage, he violently punched the flight attendant in the back of the head – forcing passengers to restrain him. You won’t believe the insane details.
To start – “passengers behaving badly” has gone from some annoying dude blaring his music too loud or reclining too far in his seat, to passengers actually assaulting other passengers or even flight attendants.
Most recently, passengers onboard an American Airlines flight report that Alexander suddenly got up from his seat and demanded a cup of coffee from a flight attendant who was busy serving others…
… and then attempted to “self-upgrade” himself to first class.
When the airline crew didn’t bow to his requests, instead of going back to his seat and remaining patient like everyone else, he got physical.
While the flight attendant was walking to the front of the plane to alert the Captain – Alexander punched him in the back of the head!
Paddle Your Own Kanoo reports:
“The violent assault allegedly occurred on American Airlines flight AA377, according to an affidavit filed in federal court when Le got up from his seat while flight attendants were conducting the inflight service and grabbed a crew member by their shoulder and demanded a cup of coffee.
Le then allegedly self-upgraded himself to First Class, and when approached by another flight attendant, Le stood up with his fists clenched and swung at the crew member.
The flight attendant turned his back and walked towards the front galley to inform the Captain when Le charged toward the crew member and punched him in the back of the head.”
Violence in the air: a friend was travelling from Cabo to LAX, when a passenger hit a flight attendant for not letting use him the first class bathroom. He was later restrained by other passengers and arrested upon touchdown. The video shot was by Barrie Livingstone pic.twitter.com/PntVqWyWs9

Passengers have lost their minds.
The air of entitlement some people have thinking everyone needs to bow down and cater to their flight experience has got to stop.
Assaulting a passenger or flight attendant is never acceptable – and it’s passengers like Alexander who DO deserve to be banned from flying instead of patriots like the Navy Seal who took out Osama Bin Laden!
Let’s hope Alexander gets what’s coming to him and doesn’t just get away with violently punching a flight attendant – and that steps are taken so he won’t be able to hurt anyone ever again.
Do you think Alexander Tung Cuu Le should be banned from flying?
