A Delta passenger spent two nights in jail after he grabbed the arm of a flight attendant while rushing to use the restroom. Apparently the aisle was blocked, and when the passenger asked if he could use the business-class restroom, he was denied. He then pulled the flight attendant's arm as he tried to get into business class. The FBI greeted him upon landed and put him in jail for two nights.
The moral of the story? Be patient. More interesting, though, is that the passenger was denied use of the business-class restroom. The Wall Street Journal's Scott McCartney did some digging, and found that TSA regulations restrict passengers to the restrooms in their seating class. So the flight attendant who prevented the passenger from using the business-class bathroom was simply following the rules.
So the next time you have to use the restroom on a plane, don't run, and certainly don't push, pull or otherwise move the flight attendant out of your way. And maybe if you ask nicely a sympathetic flight attendant will let you use the forward cabin's bathroom. Maybe.
