Two recent incidents have made me wonder if some Delta passengers have forgotten that smoking is not allowed (and this includes vaping and e-cigarettes). Both occurred before takeoff and passengers were removed in each incident.

The first incident took place while the flight was getting ready for takeoff. The man was busted for smoking in the lavatory and the captain returned the plane to the gate to have the passenger removed.

The second recent bad behavior was posted on TikTok in two parts. A passenger is seen vaping in her seat. She appears intoxicated and is asked to leave the plane by gate agents while the flight is still parked at the gate.

The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) prohibits smoking on planes. Cigarettes have been banned since 2000. Newer smoking trends like e-cigarettes and vapes were added when they came into widespread use. Any type of smoking and the use of other tobacco products like dip and chewing tobacco are also not allowed.

Anthony’s Take: People should remember the Delta safety video from years back and know that smoking is not allowed on planes. These passengers seemed under the influence, but that is not an excuse for doing so in flight.
