1980s Travel: Menudo Member Tossed from Flight
Did you know that Menudo still exists? Apparently the Latin boy band is still around, and one of its current members, Carlos Olivero, got tossed off a Delta flight on the Fourth of July after not complying with a flight attendant's request to stow his iPod.
According to a source quoted by People:
A flight attendant accused Carlos of having an attitude after she asked him to turn off his iPod in preparation for takeoff. Carlos complied and turned his iPod off, but the flight attendant then demanded he stow it. Carlos showed her again that the iPod was turned off, but he refused to stow it.
Come on, folks! How many federal trials will passengers have to face before you realize that you're required to do what FAs tell you?
As for Carlos, he and his mother were booted, and the rest of the band decided to join them in waiting for another flight. They eventually made it to Knoxville, where they performed in front of 75,000 fans still living in the '80s.
