7 unexpected reasons why you might not be allowed on an airplane and tips on how to proceed

You can pay for your ticket, check in in advance, go through all the checks and sit in your seat on board... However, even this does not guarantee that you will fly with other passengers. Why you may not be allowed to board the flight - in the OBOZREVATEL selection.

1. Overbooking is one of the most common reasons for denied boarding. It's no secret that some airlines sell more tickets than seats on the plane. This helps carriers avoid empty seats. However, even if all passengers do check in, some of them will have to be denied boarding. Employees decide who will be unlucky based on their feelings and knowledge.

2. Inappropriate clothing is another reason why you may be asked to leave the plane. First of all, you should not wear skirts and shorts that are too revealing. In 2011, a Jetblue passenger dressed in a long shirt and short shorts was not allowed to board a flight. The airline's employees were under the impression that the woman was wearing sleepwear.

Problems can also arise due to incorrect inscriptions and symbols that offend or humiliate other people. This also applies to images of political figures or caricatures of them on T-shirts and sweatshirts.

3. It is also not recommended to take off your shoes on the plane. If you just come barefoot, you will not be allowed to board the flight. First of all, you should wear shoes so that you can move quickly in case of an emergency. The second reason is more prosaic. Other passengers may complain about an unpleasant odor, and then you will definitely have to leave the flight.

4. It's not just foot odor that can force flight attendants to remove a person from an airplane. Any unpleasant odors emanating from the passenger or his or her belongings are a reason for denial of boarding. Therefore, it is not recommended to take food with a strong aroma and wear perfume.

5. Most airlines allow you to drink alcohol on board. But everything should be in moderation. If you come to check-in very drunk, you will not be allowed on the plane. In Scotland, there was a case when a heavily intoxicated woman attacked a flight attendant and struck her several times with her prosthesis.

6. It seems perfectly normal to leave a review if you don't like something. But be prepared that this airline will blacklist you and you will no longer be able to use its services. Back in 2014, Duff Watson wrote a negative comment online about one of the airport employees. So they didn't want to let him on the plane until he deleted it.

7. Lack of holiday spirit is another unexpected reason why you may be denied boarding. It seems like complete nonsense. But a similar incident occurred at New York's Lou Guardia Airport. The flight attendant wished the passenger a Merry Christmas, to which he replied in a rather rude manner that he did not recognize the New Year holidays. This small conflict escalated into a real quarrel. Then the company's employees took the man off the plane.
