What can get you kicked off a plane?

Brief interview with a guy from Airfarewatchdog-dot-com about the kinds of behaviors that can get you kicked off a plane by the crew (pretty obvious stuff, for the most part) and what you can do about it--which is not much, it turns out.

You can file a complaint with the Department of Transportation--good luck with that--or go on social media and make a stink; or you can meekly try to work with the airline to get yourself rebooked instead of stranded.

Of course if you were way out of line, you deserve to be stranded, I think we can all agree on that. But I'm a bit surprised that there aren't more options for disputing the crew's decision to kick you off, for those cases which are more grey.

Your thoughts?
