10 Annoying Airplane Behaviors That Should Probably Be Illegal

Over the past few years, I’ve traveled quite a bit and been pretty lucky when it comes to airplane seatmates.

4 Reasons I Would Love To Drive You To The Airport

Dear Drunk Tourist,
You sauntered up to the Rome airport’s international terminal with a backpack and a can of beer, ready to check in for your flight. When no one showed up to help you (God, customer service these days!), you jumped over the counter and snuggled up on the baggage belt for a quick…

Joseph Gordon-Levitt Photographs The Paparazzi

Joseph Gordon-Levitt is so adorable—he’s one of the only guys who can rock a baseball cap without making me want to scream. When some paparazzi photographers started snapping photos of him at LAX, on his way to Pittsburgh to film “The Dark Knight Rises,” Joseph whipped out his phone and started to give them a…

Lady Gaga’s Airport Adventure Look

So, this is how Lady Gaga dresses when she’s going to the airport. Not that we’re surprised. Still, it seems that multiple metal belts and tchotkes might be a bit inconvenient for airport security.

Josh Duhamel Gets Kicked Off Plane

The tabloids like to say that the “Stars They’re Just Like Us,” but it looks like the stars don’t agree. Or at least, not Josh Duhamel. The actor apparently thought his celebrity status meant that he didn’t have to turn off his Blackberry on a New York commercial flight. Duhamel was asked three times by…

The Unfriendly Skies: 7 Celebs Behaving Badly In Airports

The friendly skies have gotten a little choosy about who gets to fly in them, or so it seems for Jonathan Rhys Meyers, who’s banned from all United Airline flights.

Pam Anderson Strips A Dude To His Skivvies In Banned PETA Commercial

For a group that can kind of be no fun sometimes, PETA sure manages to make some hot and provocative commercials. This spot, called “Cruelty Doesn’t Fly,” features Pam Anderson as a bad-ass TSA employee screening passengers before they head to their flights.

Go To The Philadelphia Airport, Get A Date

Whenever I fly I hope my seat will be 19C, the one next to the cute young guy reading The New York Times Magazine. Sadly, that never happens. But apparently other people are luckier, because a survey found that nearly one in 10 people had gone out with someone they had met at the airport…
