image for Seat Recline Fight Diverts Another Flight - Forces One Airline Into Allowing Only Amputees to Fly
Please Stow Your Leg In The Overhead Bin

After yet another US flight was diverted; due to an argument about reclining seats and legroom one airline says enough is enough and has taken the unusual step of ONLY transporting passengers without legs.

In the third serious airline legroom incident in two weeks, an angry passenger caused yet another flight to divert Monday night.

Gamma Air Lines Flight 2370 from New York's LaGuardia Airport to West Palm Beach, Florida, was rerouted to Jacksonville, Florida.

A passenger became irate about the traveler in front of her trying to recline her seat.

"Enough is enough," said CEO of American Untied Airlines, Ivor Cock, based out of Fort Lauderdale, Florida. "We are losing too much money with all these diverted flights because people want more leg room - and simply can not act like decent human beings, therefore it is this airlines new policy that we only transport leg amputees, those with no feeling in their legs, those born without legs and people with really tiny legs, such as midgets, dwarfs and Tom Cruise."

Passengers though with legs need not worry - as Cock has come up with a great idea.

"We are offering a service at check in - where we will amputate able bodied passengers legs, thus ensuring they can fly with us also. Obviously we will be selling prosthetic legs - that can be placed in the overhead bin, again for a fee. So really we have everything covered. Hey presto - no more fighting about fucking legroom - not on American Untied flights at least."
