Another case of US Airways flight attendants and captains overreacting? On a flight Thursday night from Philadelphia (PHL) to Islip (ISP), the flight crew kicked off a blind man and his service dog, supposedly because the blind man had used offensive language after flight attendants asked him to calm his service dog. Passengers disagreed and noted no disturbance from the dog, nor did they hear the passenger use any inappropriate language when speaking with the crew. As the passenger was being kicked off the flight, other passengers were outraged and loudly voiced their objections. The pilot was forced to exit the cockpit and after seeing the uproar in the cabin, decided to cancel the entire flight. All passengers were then bussed from Philadelphia to Long Island.
