    Where the **** would one get the inspiration to disrespect a Gold Star family?

    Bunch of idiots. That pilot should have taken them back up after the family was allowed to deboard and done barrel rolls until he ran out of fuel.

    You'll have to forgive them, our future president has made it acceptable to **** on gold star families.

    To be fair the Khan family came after Trump first, ironically supporting a candidate who voted for the thing that got their son killed.

    You must have missed this country's latest election. Out new President elect has made it acceptable to mock prisoners of war, ridicule Gold Star families, and insult our General Officers.

    So you find it acceptable then? I didn't realize we went into hive mind as soon as a party won.

    I believe it has little to do with their political views. People just feel entitled now and anything that inconveniences them is an attack on them.

    Remember this from February when people on an airplane cheered :(.

    Yeh I might be wrong looking at that, it may not be due to the recent election and more due to people just being total pieces of ****.

    Never said I found it acceptable. I found all of it appalling. Still do.

    I'm just no longer surprised.

    I don't think it has anything to do with Trump and the Khan family.... When people travel on planes, they change into completely different people( or maybe reveal their true nature?). Every ounce of decorum is gone. I'm in the last row in the back of the plane? I'll just place my bag in the first overhead bin, and as soon as the seatbelt sign is off( hell people don't even care about the seatbelt sign) they will get up and run to the front so they can be first off the plane. It's my turn to exit the plane from my row, people two rows back will shove themselves through and prevent me from getting out of my row.

    It's absolutely horrible to travel these days. Overall I blame it on two things....The airlines charging more money for tickets while quality of service goes down( no meals, decreasing legroom, narrower and thinner seats, etc). Leads to people being aggravated about the whole experience. And as Zombie said, people are in general pieces of ********* and only care about themselves.

    The article said the people may not have known they were a gold star family they were told a special military family. It was the ones in first class that compained. The blame I see here with no clue about who compained seems to be worse with trump winning.

    You show us the poll of how the booing freaks on the plane voted, and after that we will discuss who deserves to listen to this lecture.

    Airline flights are a joke; people wearing sweats or pyjamas on the plane, along with "bed head". Flights now are the airborne equivalent of Walmart.

    With the extra benefit of being trapped with the occasional screaming baby.

    People say public transport like buses and subways have the worst kinds of people, but in my experience airplanes have the worst kinds of people.

    But like someone said above, Trump has made it ok to mock and slander gold star families.

    Nope. Things got reversed in the recent election; we've now seen that it is the right that boos gold star families, and the left that honors them. No doubt the people booing here were patriotic Trump supporters, as he's the gold-star-hater-in-chief.
