Chicago bound Polish LOT flight diverts because of upgrade refusal fight

Most of us have read the tips and tricks on how to get an upgrade, but one Polish man clearly decided that the rules did not apply to him. The man was seated comfortably in business class when he started demanding that the crew upgrade his son from coach to the more comfortable cabin.

When the crew refused, a fight broke out, and the pilot diverted the plane back to Warsaw to remove the rowdy passenger and hand him over to border police.

The diversion created quite the delay, and passengers are expected to continue their trip to Chicago later today.

Remember, flight attendants rarely have the power to upgrade passengers, and if you really want your kids to sit with you in the premium cabin, pay for a premium cabin ticket.
