I guess the pandemic has really driven people to the brink of insanity, especially when it comes to airline passengers.

It seems like there are a lot more idiots and violent people getting on planes nowadays and causing a scene.

Maxwell Berry behaved like a complete moron on a recent flight from Philadelphia to Miami. The 22-year-old groped female flight attendants and took a swing at their male co-worker during what must have been a grueling Frontier Airlines flight for everyone on board.

After his meltdown, an employee duct-taped the young man to his seat. Berry ranted to other passengers about topics ranging from race to his parents’ two-million-dollar net worth.

Fed up with hearing his drunken raging, the same worker taped his mouth shut as well to the cheers of most onboard.

Berry began making animal-like noises until the tape fell below his top lip. He then started calling out for help; to no one’s surprise, his pleas were ignored.

Berry soon resumed talking normally, seemingly forgetting that he was in the middle of a crisis. The 20-something was charged with three misdemeanor counts of battery.

Maxwell Berry was lauded by Ohio Wesleyan University for managing a successful academic life and collegiate golf career while a student there. He was even praised by his alma mater for — get this — shattering frat boy stereotypes.

Frontier Airlines said in a statement, “During a flight from Philadelphia to Miami on July 31, a passenger made inappropriate physical contact with two flight attendants and subsequently physically assaulted another flight attendant. As a result, the passenger needed to be restrained until the flight landed in Miami and law enforcement arrived.”

Post-pandemic travelers have had their fair share of crazy in airports and in-flight.

Maxwell Berry can now add viral video star to his resume along with the other idiots who can’t keep it together for a few hours.

  • This jerk assaulted 2 airline employees so was taped to his seat for the safety of all on board. Why suspend the employees ?

    • I agree – that’s about the best solution they could come up with to control this out-of-control idiot…

  • Before the TSA, and all the other alphabet soups, providing harrassment of passengers prior to boarding, the constant delays, and all the other ‘Gum’ment’ interference, passengers were quiet, calm and, in the main, polite. It requires an obnoxious drunk as well as a fool to dirty their hands touching a ‘flight attendant’.

  • 1st, alcohol & altitude NEVER mix, & planes never pressurize below 7-8K ft when at cruising altitudes. That’s almost always 1 component in these. 2nd, today’s youngsters have the notion they are “entitled” to whatever they want whenever they want it, as a general rule, because they have not been taught to delay gratification, let alone how to fail, & recover from that. 3rd, respect for others’ rights is another lesson no longer taught. This combo is a disaster when you cram people into a closed tube, rebreathing their own CO2, on top of all the rest. But it’s not something that has just started; it’s been a growing problem for a couple of decades or so, that hasn’t been adequately dealt with in all this time.
