Ever Cut In Line Boarding A Plane? – This Kid Did And Had To Apologize

This summer a high school lacrosse team was traveling on Southwest Airlines. Some of the players got to board early and pick their seats while others had to stay back and wait for the next boarding call. But that didn’t stop one young player from boarding out of his zone. Check out the apology he had to give in front of the entire plane for cutting in line.

As a high school lacrosse team was waiting to board a flight to a Summer tournament, one athlete took it upon himself to sneak into the pre-board group for “young passengers”. He thought he had beaten the system, but his coaches saw the whole thing go down. One hastily written speech and a nice bit of cooperation from the crew of Southwest Airlines Flight 592 later, this video was born.

I’ve seen plenty of Delta Elite members cut in line for early boarding, but I’ve never seen this happen to any of the line cutters. Pretty funny and probably embarrassing for the young lacrosse player. Hat Tip Hansgolden

    he didn’t even write the letter. Dumb.

    So he beat the system. Good luck to him. To embarrass him (especially publicly) is definitely the wrong way to go.

    Thumbs up for the coach. Who cares if he wrote the apology. Gave the lax player a releasable penalty through an artful dodge.

    @harry – We now know that you are part of the problem, and not the solution.
