What could be more annoying than a crying baby on your flight? How about grown adults arguing over knee space?

In the past 10 days, three flights have been diverted after passengers became unruly due to cramped conditions.

On Monday, two women were grounded after one reclined her seat and encroached on the other's nap time.

Another flight was diverted after a passenger put on a knee defender device to prevent the seat in front from reclining that got him a drink thrown in his face. That plane was diverted also.

Talk about a flight delay! Not to mention the cost of diverting a flight on a major airline. We're talking thousands of dollars!

"It shouldn't be to a point where you get angry and take actions against the passenger behind you or in front of you," said Richard Raleigh.

But you can't help but wonder are airlines bringing the drama on themselves?

Here's a simple equation less leg room plus more seats equals airborne turbulence!

Hey, maybe we'll see laid back passengers when they're actually able to lay back!
